AllMusic Review by

Farid al Atrache, of course, is one of the great names in 20th-century Egyptian popular music. Asmahan had one of the great voices of 1930s and ‘40s pop. Both were stars of Egypt's musical cinema. This set of their 1940s hits charmingly recalls an era of experiment and eccentricity.
