SAHIB SHIHAB - COMPANIONSHIP
Sahib Shihab for Vogue - the third and last time of posting.
I have had a number of requests for this since some asshole took the trouble to get my original files deleted.I finally got round to ripping it again but this time @320.This rip is also free of background noise which plagued my original vinyl share-take it from me,never buy an audio cd recorder!!!
Two files - HERE and HERE.
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.
