    Strange… on Spotify the track list is very different… and the album is called nuits d’été avec Naima Samih. Same photo on the cover… Too bad… I really love the musika munreal track there.

      Some of the comments down here read like straight up Twitter threads which is a bit depressing for Discogs and yet low-key kinda entertaining.

      Anyway, my 10 cents (and before getting all salty: this is my opinion): I like this record, simple as that. Do I care that they swapped out one track? Nope. It really doesn't bother me at all and I didn't know people could get so angry over such a minor thing. I'm just a simpleton who doesn't care that much about geopolitical issues and historical accuracy. If they swapped the cover with a picture of a duck and changed the font to comic-sans, I would've still bought the record because the music is great. But what it ultimately boils down to:

      I like the music and I'm glad I didn't had to rip out a kidney for an original copy. Also I want to mention that this record inspired me to visit Morocco in 2017 - and so I did. I visited Disques Gam in Casablanca when it was still open. Gam was there - and for people who've ever met him - he wasn't too nice, but I'm glad I was able to visit his little museum (because that's how he treated it) when it was still open. So maybe I like this record even more because of this. I won't think I would've ever visited Morocco weren't it for this record. Even if this will become thrift store dollar-bin music in 10 years, I'll still cherish it.

        It frightens me how many aggressive and one-sided comments I had to cope with (not only here) about our decision to omit a track from the original album and replace it by another one.
        We decided to start our label to share rare and good music with other people. I think it's our right indeed to release a partial re-issue if we think a track is musically not good enough to repress.
        We work with passion and awareness and choose quality above commercialism.
        In this case here we decided to skip the easy listening track 'Ourika' which was in my opinion originally included to market the album. For us it has no artistic value, so we found it a good opportunity to replace it by the wonderful instrumental track 'Zifaf Filfada', which was originally issued as a b-side for a Naima Samih 45. We like and respect Abdou El Omari's work and I think we did our best to proove that by buying copy rights to release the trilogy. More than the half of the material has never seen daylight before.
        Some people can't follow us in our decisions or even say they don't want to support the label anymore because we are arrogant in our reactions. We can only say that we are very friendly and understanding people but for us it's not easy to stay calm if people attack you with very subjective and ignorant public comments.
        We hope that our comment here is fair enough for the people who had their questions.
        We also hope that somebody will upload the track 'Ourika' soon on streaming services, so that it will be accessible for the community. The track is also still part of Boujema Gam's catalog since we don't own exclusive copy rights for it. Address Disques Gam: Boulevard de Paris 99, Casablanca.

          Love this album and I have just bought it on mail order. I am amazed music like this exists for us to buy in 2017... the combination of the north african rhythms and scales plus primitive organ sounds via the Farfisa combo organ (with wah pedal!) and the mad use of echo makes for a really unique sound. Like others have stated... seems weird to have omitted a track and added another. My guess is that the reissue album was made from a vinyl and not the master tapes. Perhaps the LP they took the copy sound had a damaged track or something.. would be nice to know the answer.

            The song "Ourika" is missing, but the song " Zifaf Filfada" not appear in the original 1976 issue .

              I will never fully understand what is the decision of omitting "Ourika" track from the re-issue and NOT publishing it into NONE of the three releases. It looks like a case of over-exploiting...

                Beside the date of release between both pressings (Nov16/Jan17), does anyone could add details (visible, physical) to make the difference between these 2 releases. For info : the second pressing also have : promo insert card and download card.
