Compiled from his vast discography, heres a selection with some of his best tracks, an astounding set showing his unique, distinct psychedelic sound. All moving around his deep voice, and with the use of electric guitar (incl. some wah-wah), stunning reverbered drums, some sitar and tabla, organ, flutes and bass, he made it to record some incredible folk-pop tunes that will now meet another world.
First time ever out of Afghanistan, listen to the hypnotic, psychedelic folk-pop sounds of Ahmad Zahir!

Remastered from the original mastertapes and including extensive linernotes.
