ORIENTAL FAVORITES


by Jo Amar


HED-ARZI RECORDS
AN 47-91
Circa 1960s





SIDE A:



YOM HASHABBAT
HAMAVDIL

SIDE B:



KOCHAVI SHAKA
SHUVI SHUVI HASHULAMIT

Editor's note: I googled Mr. Amar and found out that he recently passed away. As in 10 days ago. I guess there was no elaborate celebration in the name of this King of Israeli music. Anyhow, the cover gave me hope that this would be some kind of disco-lounge record but it is not to be. Most of these songs appear to be liturgical or traditional folk songs of sorts.
