Volume Two in Esoteric’s Music of the Arab People series once again highlights the talents of Toraia Orchestra of Algiers. These songs were recorded in 1952 by Jerry Newman, and were released by Esoteric Records of NYC the next year. I’m having little luck pinning down even a partial Esoteric discography. Thus, I really have no idea how many volumes they managed to release in this (or any other) series. Would surely love to find out. 320 vinyl rip by yours truly. Enjoy.
