only made it on vinyl !!!
by mid 70s ,with the limited use of vinyl in some countries and the
disapper of vinyl in many other countries in the middle east
cheap & meduim quality tapes format swept the middle
east with 100's of strange audio cassette labels that would be easily
considred as bootleg in the eyes of the west but in the middle east
u could find it sold officaly in stores in the gulf countries among
other arab countries....here is some examples of these tapes...
randaphon . 80s - egypt
party - 70s
IMD . lebanon .70s
never knew when grabbed this tape without reading the titles that i will discover that the music is by omar khorshid and away from the phony title , strange compile of tracks coming from various LPS of omar , stupid title of an arabian gulf bootleg release just to attract buyers , like omar's name is not enough for them.... is that brooke shields on the cover or am i dreaming !!!!
