AllMusic Review by

Riahi is regarded as having been one of the fathers of modern Tunisian popular music. During the 1930s and '50s, he and singers like him worked Egyptian and Middle Eastern influences into what had been a largely traditional form, transforming it without detracting from its Tunisian base. This 1953 album gathers together some of his most famous recordings.
