Mezze A La Azzam
Format: COMPACT DISC
Azzam, Bob; Bob Azzam Orchestre
In that year of 1960, Bob Azzam dominated the sales-charts with three inescapable hits made for parties: “Mustapha”, “Fais-moi le couscous, chéri” and “C’est écrit dans le ciel”, three titles that mixed good-natured humor with Oriental rhythms. But Bob had many other strings to his bow, as you can hear in this ’mezze’ of 24 songs. Wadie George Azzam, better known by his stage name Bob Azzam, (24 October 1925 in Cairo – 24 July 2004 in Monaco) was an Egyptian singer of Lebanese ancestry. With his international hit song "Mustapha", Azzam achieved success in France in the 1960s. The track peaked at No. 23 in the UK Singles Chart, spending fourteen weeks in that chart. Azzam had a degree in electronic engineering, and has been regarded as the man behind the chamber of echoes "Hors-studio" or "off-studio"
