Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan was a man of impressive, even daunting, stature. The emotional intensity and soaring power of his voice transcend all boundaries of language and religion and have popularized this beautiful and inspirational music beyond Muslim peoples to audiences worldwide. Shahen Shah is available for the first time on vinyl since its original release in 1989. This re-issue replicates the original four-track LP release and also comes with a 16bit CD quality digital download card. Two additional tracks ("Nit Khair Mansan Sohnia Main Teri" and "Kehna Ghalat Ghalat To Chhupana Sahi Sahi") that featured on the CD version are available as part of the digital download file.
"...transcendentally mystical but with all the visceral presence of rock; ancient forms renewed with tremendous energy and immediacy." - City Paper
