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.
I came across this record on a few blogs and managed to track down some audio from WFMU's site. I would love to hear more from this honky-tonkin' caterwaulin' queen. Listen to the tracks below and I think you will too!
