thank you!

For all the info and links. Barak .. I missed it! :( thnx anyway, maybe next time around. ur rite about peace after Egypt tour, the Peace treaty was signed in Washington, DC, US, on March 26, 1979 (did some research:) a yr after the show but then Anwar Al Sadat was assasinated in '91 also as a result and it goes on n on. I think the situation now has gone beyond that in '78 and it will take more than a live concert to create peace between Israel and the ME specially now that Persians are involved, hmm, i dont know much poli tics but I call for puttin' down the weapons from all sides, stop the killing on all sides. right? then .. dream about couragable leadres with dignity and simply .. 2 eyes.
Mr.Pid! it's been a while my friend and I drowned in work and makin trouble and reacting to it, thts all i can say. What a generous offer re. the BFA cover, i'm humbled but I will only accept it if I see you in person someday :) but for now all I want is a chance to see the Arabic translation along with the other languages, it just gives me a sense of pride and excitement.
Thnx Marye for the archive cover links. I think the cover Art is exceptional! amazing graphics (I am a graphic designer BTW).
Love n Peace.

BFA in Arabic

The original vinyl release came with the lyrics in English, Hebrew, Arabic and Persian as an insert. I just happen to have a copy of same. If you haven't seen that ikoiko, I could hook you up. Seems like that was part of the original Artists Intent to begin with. PM me your address if you'd like, and it's yours!

And it just might be a good candidate for inclusion in the archives here, if the site owners have their hands on a good digital image...

Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.

The radio - marathon

It's happening on July 23rd (i made a mistake on my previous post) @ 10pm Tel-Aviv (gmt+3).

Here's a direct stream for listening:

I think you can just paste it into your browser or media-player.
Even though the talking would be in hebrew, there'll be plenty of good music for you all non hebrew speakers to dig.

Right after the Dead played Egypt there was peace between Israel and Egypt.
Too bad they couldn't tour in the entire middle-east... That might have solved some more problems.

Inshallah = if God wants so ..

Help me understand the true meaning of Blues for Allah - Inshallah .. i am arabic and i understand literally what it means but ... i need o know the circumstances, motive .. i know all about the background of the song and the assassination that happened but was the song written because of that incident? and why hasn't it been widely spread like all the other songs on the same album? any thoughts on this will really be welcomed and kindly thanked for. one last thing .. anyone has the cover of the album with Arabic names of songs?

I don't read Hebrew (or Arabic for that matter) but as I interpret the page at the second link, it's on the 23rd, i.e. the day after tomorrow. I encourage those more conversant in the local language to tell us what's up.
