Various Artists: Give Me Love: Songs of the Brokenhearted - Baghdad, 1925-1929

Album Reviews:

The Wire (p.59) - "There is music from Bahrain and Kuwait, Hebrew hymns of praise featuring hearty cries of 'Allah!' courtesy of local Jewish musicians, terrific Kurdish fiddle improvisations...and gorgeous laments by Baghdadi vocalists..."

Dirty Linen (p.50) - "This is a remarkable collection of some of the most emotionally charged music you're likely to hear....This recording is a must-hear for anyone hoping to gain a deeper understanding of the heart of Iraq."

Signal To Noise (magazine) (p.68) - "There is an irresistible and highly evocative atmosphere throughout these selections which comes from the lovesick emotions conveyed in the songs, as well as from the rich cultural mix which this music grew out of."
