AllMusic Review by

This cassette, one of a set of three, brings together the 1920s recordings of the queen of Islamic song. Made in her young days, backed by a small traditional group, they have a freshness that transcends the poor recording quality, and a depth that foreshadows the days when she would reign supreme from Pakistan to Morocco.
