This is a double soundtrack and if that wasn't enough, there is even more hit songs than you can handle, totaling 26 tracks. However, it's hard for anyone who has not seen the films to know which song belongs to which soundtrack. There are a number of instrumental tracks that are beautiful especially 'Hannin' and 'El Dikool Ila El Saraia'. The songs on this album are classics and each and every one of them gives me a certain feeling, Fairouz's vocals are at their best, the music is enchanting and the quality of the album is great. I can't see a reason why anyone would not already have a copy. In the booklet, there is a synopsis of each of the two films in both Arabic and English and that's about all. It's not really the best of booklets, but for sure it's better than any cassette booklet.
All Songs were written by: The Rahbani Brothers but obviously this is a mistake done by the record label, for instance Tik Tik and Tiri ya Tayara were composed by Philemon Wehbe, and Ya Akdel Hagebayne was written by Beshara Elkhoury and composed by Salim Elhelou.
