    This LP is one made for the soundtrack of the Henry Barakat directed 1970 film, namely ‘The Great Love/ Expulsion from Paradise’, which starred Farid El-Atrash alongside the Egyptian cinema starlet Faten Hamamah.
    The original soundtrack varied from the sheer classical Taraab songs sung in formal Arabic like ‘Adnaytani Bil Hajr’ (You Turned Me Down With Neglect), to the cha’abi songs sung both in Lebanese vernacular and Egyptian accent so famous in the 70s and earlier on. (This goes for all the rest of the songs in the film, and they are: Bit’omor Al-Rass Oul Eyn ‘You Order Me On Top of My Head and My Eye’/ Lebanese – Ya Weili Men Hobbo ‘Oh Woe Me from Her/His Love!’ / Egyptian – Ala Bali Ala Bali ‘On My Mind, On My Mind’/ Egyptian – La Ouaeynayki ‘For Your Eyes’ / Arabic Formalese – Ana Ouenta Ou Ba’ass ‘You, And I, And Only Us’/ Egyptian).

    Great add to one of the best blogsites featuring old, Middle-eastern resurrecords, indeed.

    Have fun listening to what millions of Arab people still do in the Zips till this day!

    Thank you Nick (& Hammer)!

    While the you tube link(s) sealed the deal, I most definitely would’ve dled based on that cover alone 😉

    Poor Farid, pining for his lost love….if thats what it takes to make such awesome music, then I say let him be lonely for the rest of his life. The musical equivalent of foie gras.
