*Here's the Rai I'm really REALLY looking for. The good stuff prior to 1985, where it seems the CASIOs havent completely taken over yet. If anybody out there has a line on these (or stuff like it)- for either purchase or download- hit a dude up:

Kouider Bensaid (1984)

Chab El Heindi (1985)

Cheikh Benfissa

Howl at this one, too upped lately by a Kabyle-maddened guy from Algeria.
That chappie has soul, I tell y'all.

Dig.

Note: the title of the LP is again *elongated sigh* a misnomer: N'sal Fik means in Kabylian/Algerian Arabic 'Asking About You'.
WERD.
