Shamus-ud-doha, Badar-ud-doja 11'02
(Shahen-Shah) [Real World, RWCD 3]
I believe this is the best of his Real World releases, and the only criticism I can make of the other more recent recordings is that they suffer from a poor balance of voices. An even blend is much more desirable. This song also appears on "Passion - Sources" compilation, which is certainly worth a mention in this context.
