SAHIB SHIHAB - COMPANIONSHIP
Here's a real rarity and my number one desert island disc - it's this little beauty on German Vogue from Sahib Shihab.This also contains my favourite tune "Om Mani Padme Hum" penned by the wonderful Francy Boland.This double album has it all from frantic banging percussive workouts to modal numbers to beautiful ballads,all performed by Francy,Kenny Clarke,Jimmy Woode,Fats Sadi,Benny Bailey,Ake Persson and even Milt Jackson on vocal on one track.It's a staggeringly good piece of music and worth every penny of the HUGE price tag it commands.
Ripped @ 256 from vinyl-no reissue apart from the infamous late 80s bootleg which got pulped .
Had a few problems with this upload -namely trax 5 & 10 so there are now 3 files for you to download .
