Al Basim - Revival download album

In the 90s Al Basim relocated to France performing with The Gypsy Kings and recording a second album in 2006, 27 years after his striking and still largely obscured debut. This story also features a personal coda when I contacted Al Basim and told him how much I loved Revival. He send me a brief letter in return. Turned out the eyes on Revival were those of a kind and gentle man, grateful to hear his music, even after so many years, was being appreciated.

This album has an average beat per minute of BPM (slowest/fastest tempos:, BPM).

An obscure pearl from Iraq.

Please consider Al Basim for inclusion in the Archives, probably under the Psychedelic, Space Rock sub-genre: Born in Baghdad, Basim moved to the United States in 1978, and released his album "Revival" a year later. This is a very rare album which has received critical acclaim.

Reviews about Al Basim - Revival (1):
Reemiel
When one day I walked into my local record store and asked if something out of the ordinary had arrived, all fingers pointed instantly to this album on their ‘wall of fame’ (read wall filled with expensive records). The cover certainly attracted my attention: Al Basim’s intensely dark brooding eyes subliminally messaged me to either buy or die. It was my first encounter with modern Iraqi music, as Al Basim (or rather Basim Al-Hashimi) was born in Baghdad, the nation’s capital. A guitar enthusiast, he migrating to America in 1987 where Revival was recorded with drummer Phil Canter, bass player John Starrett and flutist David Reskin. An eclectic mix of jazz-rock with avant-garde overtones, a hint of progressive and a touch of psychedelics, the album proved money exceptionally well-spent. Musically Revival is a perfect blend of western and eastern influences and as such completely out of touch with the then-current post-punk zeitgeist. And thus the few hundred copies, released privately by Al Basim, disappeared without much trace. Redemption came when Revival gained a four star rating in Hans Pokora’s book ‘3001 Record Collector Dreams’. Beautiful dreamy songs like Poitiers and Souvenir, the avant garde Open Space or jazzy History Of The World certainly affirm this rating. In the 90s Al Basim relocated to France performing with The Gypsy Kings and recording a second album in 2006, 27 years after his striking and still largely obscured debut. This story also features a personal coda when I contacted Al Basim and told him how much I loved Revival. He send me a brief letter in return. Turned out the eyes on Revival were those of a kind and gentle man, grateful to hear his music, even after so many years, was being appreciated.
