Here we have it: the first reissue of the legendary Egyptian singer Nagat (aka Nagat al-Saghira), who has been primed for rediscovery following the reissue campaigns of other foundational singers of the Arab world like Fairuz and Oum Kalsoum. This album contains the much-loved minor-key earworm "Ana Bashaa El Bahr" which seeped its way across Soundclouds and YouTubes likely tracing back to its inclusion on "The Rough Guide To The Music Of Egypt" compilation CD in 2003. Wewantsounds does great work to present this music in stellar quality with great context provided by Disco Arabesquo.

"Wewantsounds is delighted to team up with Disco Arabesquo for the reissue of Nagat El Seghira's cult 1980 album Eyoun El Alb. Originally released on cassette on the Egyptian label Soutelphan, the album has since become a sought-after classic on the Arabic groove scene and this is the first time it is released on vinyl. Consisting of four tracks, the album features two tracks produced by Hany Shenouda whose group Al Massrieen is a reference on the Arabic disco funk scene. Remastered for vinyl by Colorsound Studio in Paris, the album features the original cassette artwork plus a two-page colour insert featuring liner notes by Disco Arabesquo." – Wewantsounds
