Jermain Tamraz - Memory Lane
Notes

Holy wow! I’ve been holding out years now for even a passable rip of Memory Lane; Assyrian singer Jermain Tamraz’s astonishing early hits collection. Well, last night, an anonymous reader laid a primo 320 vinyl rip in the comments section of an older Tamraz post. What a gift! Eternal thanks to anonymous. Highest recommendation, folks. Enjoy.My next order of related business is to secure even a brief synopisis of Tamraz’s biography, career & discography. Any assistance with this would be deeply appreciated. Also, anyone know where might I find a copy of Tamraz’s name in Syriac script?

*Turns out “Moumita” is the name of the track with the “Unknown Title” from Sublime Frequencies’ I Remember Syria cd:

    my affection couldn’t be struck more intensely burning like a flame on the cold mountain top.
    there’s little making me as happy as merry melodies in a surprising fashion.
