I worked with Ofra on this album. She was every inch a perfectionist and wanted to ensure that the English language used was not your average poor translation from the Hebrew or Yemenite origin of the song. What amazed me the most about Ofra was her ability to just get it right first time. She worked tirelessly - and perfectly. She was beautiful inside and out. I wasn't credited for my translation, as this had been contracted out, but she wasn't happy with the result. She did find the space to thank me on the album sleeve, which was typical of her generosity of spirit.

The first time I met Ofra, I didn't know who she was, and we celebrated Passover together at friends. I enjoyed singing along to all the religious melodies - and together we harmonised and smiled and sang. At the end of the evening, she said to me almost crying: "Thank you so much - nobody has dared to sing with me for many years." I thought it was a very strange thing to say - until I later found out who she was!

We became good friends, spending many hours together - but for too short a time. I remember walking down Regent Street with her to buy English Language tapes so that she could perfect her spoken English.... within minutes we were mobbed by fans, all calling out her name through the shop window. The sadness of her lonely life was often all too abundant. She was held on a pedestal, imprisoned by her own greatness. It breaks my heart to see pictures of her, or hear her voice.

The best thing about this album is that I believe it is one of the original recordings that have not been remixed by her manager, Bezalel Aloni. So it is authentic, purely Ofra and as such, totally beautiful.

Long one of Israel's most popular singers, Ofra Haza broke through to international recognition during the mid-1980s when her traditional music found favor on the U.K. club circuit, its success leading to a series of unlikely pop projects. Born in Tel Aviv on November 19, 1959, Haza was the daughter of Yemenite parents forced to flee from their native country's Muslim regime; at the age of 12 she joined the renowned Hatikva theatrical troupe, and with the group cut a number of award-winning records before serving a compulsory two-year tour of duty in the Israeli army. Upon her discharge, in 1979 she mounted a solo career, becoming a star not only at home but also in neigboring Arab nations; in 1983, her recording of "Chai!" placed second in the annual Eurovision Song Contest.

Inspired by the ancient melodies taught to her by her mother, in 1985 Haza recorded Yemenite Songs, which featured traditional instruments as well as lyrics drawn from the 16th century poetry of Shalom Shabazi; not only a major hit at home, the album was also a worldbeat smash in England as well. With 1988's Shaday, she turned away from traditional sounds to pursue more dance-flavored material, and the single "Im Nin'al" even reached the Top 20 on the U.K. pop charts, additionally becoming a club favorite in the U.S. Haza's music was also sampled on the Eric B. and Rakim rap classic "Paid in Full," and her vocals later found their way into M.A.R.R.S.' seminal "Pump Up the Volume" as well.

1989's Desert Wind was sung largely in English, and its release corresponded with Haza's first American tour.

Ofra's first mainstream CD featuring the hit singles "Galbi" and her massive hit "Im nin alu" (9 weeks at no. 1 in Germany!). A great mix of traditional Hebrew songs and pop. The Foreign titled songs are definately the best as the english Language songs sound rather dated. If you only buy 1 Ofra Haza cd make sure its this one !!

Amongst many albums Ofra produced, this has to be my favourite.

From the world known songs Im Nin' Alu, Galbi thru to spine-tingling songs as Take Me To Paradise and My Aching Heart.

If you currently own a couple of Ofra's cds and contemplating on buying this. Don't think twice, buy it! I promise you will not regret it.

When you listen to this album, it is best played in a relaxing atmosphere, with the lights down low or even off. Close your eyes and let Ofra take YOU to paradise.

Even though this wonderful Israeli singer is no longer with us, she left us (her fans) with a wonderful legacy; her music.

Rest in Peace our beloved Angel.
