In amongst the exotic and esoteric grooves within, we have a welcome return to vinyl for two of Ahmed’s rarest and most sought-after 7”s. The Ned Doheny-via-Benghazi, West Coast grooving of "Nisyan" rubs shoulders with the Tommy Vance produced Balearic classic "Awedny" - alive with haunting flutes and relaxed funk. Elsewhere reggae-tinged lilters of "Falah" and "Yu Hussad" beam sunshine straight from your speakers and "Njoom Al Leyel" boasts a stoned funk one only finds in pre-Italo Italy. "Ahmed Fakroun" is the perfect late night, come-down album. Especially after a hot and sweaty evening in a raï club, somewhere in North Africa.
STAFF COMMENTSPatrick says: After supplying a party power-up with a much needed reissue of "Mots D'Amour", PMG team up with Ahmed Fakroun for an anthology of the Libyan legend's late 70s output. Alongside rare as hens teeth Balearic belters "Awedny", "Nisyan" and "Sinini" we're treated to a whole set of low slung, lightly spiced North African grooves.
