CHABA FADELA AND CHEB SAHRAOUI SALAM MAGHREB CDSM7 CD 8.50 COL
Sitting on my shelf unopened since 2000 so now in 2009 it's about time I had a listen. Great set of tracks with heart rending duets set to traditional music with a bit of westernisation for added flavour. 1. MA ANDI ZHAF MAK

CHABA ZAHOUANIA LALLA MAHLAK OU MAGHLAK GP03CD CD 11.99 COL
Great singing on this album made back in 1994. I just love the twangy backing to Zahouania's husky and sensuous vocals on the second track while her sultry voice really comes into its own on the seventh track. 1. LALLA MAHLAK OU MAGHLAK

CHABA ZAHOUANIA NIGHTS WITHOUT SLEEPING ICT9914 TC 10.00 COL
Superb Rai album released by Island back in 1988 and I would still rate it as one of the best. Her deep and rough vocals are addictive and she has dueted with many of the top male stars of Rai music. Just have a listen to Ya Laoulid and feel that sensuous rhythm that tells you to get up and dance. 1. YA LAOULID (Oh My Child)
2. DINI MAAK (Take Me With You)

CHABA ZAHOUANIA YAMA GEDA NARI CMD3857 TC £ 10.00
A rather plain looking cassette dating from 1988 that hides some absolutely magic music, her best ever album? Just have a listen to Ana Oulef Nergoud which must be one of my most favourite Rai tracks ever. 1. YAMA GEDA NARI
2. HAKDA OULA MAYACHKACHE
3. NECHKI LELOUALI
4. YA KAOUI GALBI
5. ANA OULEF NERGOUD

CHABA ZAHOUANIA YANA YANA LMM007 CD 11.99 COL
Oh what have they done to one of the most stunning voices of Rai music. Electronic distortion of that magic voice ruins the opening tracks and is a crime. Thankfully it gets less as it goes on. Producers if you ever read this what on earth were you thinking of. Still there are tracks like Yake Aafsa, Ya Garie, Arouaa Andi and Oublie Moi still to die for..... 1. H'BIBI DARHA BIYA

CHEB KHALED MANZEEDISH NAASHAQ - SHABBA BINT BELADI PH05 TC 10.00 COL
An early album from the undisputed king of Rai. Thumping rhythmic drums and organ with the king belting out his power packed vocals. I have only come across the name of one of these tracks on any other album and that was track 3 which was released on the Khaled Rebel of Rai double CD. 56 minutes 1. KHARAGO QUDAMNA

CHEB KHALED N'SSI N'SSI CIDM1111 CD 12.50 COL
Magnificent album from Khaled as he now likes to be know. With each new release he gets better but he is going to find it extremely hard to surpass the quality of this album. Although the instrumentation is modern the music keeps all its traditional styles and is even augmented here and there by little western flourishes. Gone are the days of the rough and ready Rai songs which made him famous, always vocally intense he sings now with more purpose and feeling than ever before. SUPERB. ( F.T.

The ever inventive Khaled has another hit album with the opening tracks as an outstanding example of how to combine the original raw rai sound with the smoothness of modern studio technology. The middle tracks are a bit to modern and Western influenced for my liking but having said that the final track is a superb thumping disco oriented stunner.

CHEB ZAHOUANI - CHABA ZAHOUANIA SHIFOUR AT TAXI PH657 TC 10.00 COL
Rai with that thumping rhythmic drumming that's missing on recent Euro releases. Instrument wise it seems to have a bit of everything combined with Zahouani's power packed vocals. The last track has to be unique as the manufacturer has put his squeaky voiced advert in while the song is still going, sounds great. Tracks: Shifour At Taxi, See Trotar, Khallil Habib Le Babibo, Al-Kubaida Majruha, Mahbobi. The title track is addictive and once heard you'll find yourself humming it all the time. 1. SHIFOUR AT TAXI

Originally released back in 1992 and now with two bonus tracks. This offering from the King is a really superb album. His previous album KUTCHE was rather too electronic for my rather purist tastes and I had visions of this being the same but how wrong can you get. He's reverted back to the traditional Algerian roots to come up with an album that uses the Western instruments only to enhance the traditional ones that are to the fore on most tracks.

Massi's second album sees her applying her cool, sweet, flexible voice and folksy guitar to songs about love, parental concerns, and the universal longing for personal freedom. She studied Arab-Andalusian tradition and this is plainly audible in her compositions and arrangements, but sounds from the Indian subcontinent, French chanson, and American soft jazz have also seeped in. 1.
