AllMusic Review by

Manteca's 2005 release Forever King is a 12-track collection of recordings Cheb Khaled made before his international success in the '90s. Most of this was cut in the late '70s, but some of it comes from a little bit later. Although there are longer collections available elsewhere, this is a sharply selected, well-annotated compilation of Khaled's early work.
