Elias Rahbani – Lover’s Lane (Lebanon, 1974, Parlophone Voix de L’Orient Series)

Elias Rahbani, from Lebanon, is the youngest of the three Rahbani Brothers, well known for their contribution to the Lebanese – and more, Oriental – music scene.
His two older brothers, Assi and Mansour Rahbani, also known as “The Rahbani Brothers” (which Elias wasn’t be part of) were composers and songwriters, famous for their work with the Lebanese Diva, Fairuz (who was the wife of Assi).
Elias composed of over 700 songs, both in Eastern and Western styles.

This album is the 2nd volume of his masterpiece, “Mosaic of The Orient“, considered by many as Elias best album, a very eclectic instrumental record, with some psychedelic organ and bouzouk parts, oriental jazz and hip hoppy beats.

The cover art is designed by Nabil Mourani, who designed my favourite Oriental record covers (remember Babylon Mood by Munir Bachir ? That was him also !).

I decided to share with you “Lover’s Lane“, a beautiful melancholic organ ballad with a little psychedelic touch – Enjoy !
