Al-Bayati, Saadoun

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Al-Bayati, Saadoun - Songs Of Iraq Songs Of Iraq
World Used - LP CFS 3310 Samar
Beautiful 1973 Original. "When Baghdad Native Saadoun Al-Bayati Moved From Iraq To Chicago, A City That Has Attracted Its Share Of Middle Eastern Immigrants, He Continued To Perform Traditional Iraqi Music. It Was In 1973 That Samar Enterprises, A Small Indie Label, Released Songs Of Iraq, Which Finds The Iraqi Vocalist Favoring A Minimalist Approach And Employing Only A Few Instruments. Al-Bayati's Only Accompaniment Consists Of Percussion And An Oud -- Because The Accompaniment Is So Spare, Al Bayati's Vocals Are Really Isolated. He Doesn't Have A Lot Of Instruments To Hide Behind, But Then, He Doesn't Need Them. Al-Bayati Is Obviously A Fine Singer, And His Soulfulness Is Impossible To Miss On 'Samra,' 'Iraqi 6,' And Other Selections. Here's The Bad News: This Superb LP Has Long Been Out Of Print And Has Yet To Be Reissued On CD. So If You're Able To Track Down A Copy, Grab It Immediately." ~ Alex Henderson.... more details
