The return of a cult star! Her rarest album from 1972 - now available again! Timeless songs in several languages!
New albums by Esther Ofarim are rare, re-issues of her best recordings are even rarer, and this record was...until now...the rarest of all. Since the 1960s, the outstanding Israeli singer has recorded many hits as a solo artist and many more with her long-time partner Abi Ofarim (the best-known, of course, was Cinderella Rockefeller). These days, she's celebrated as an artist of worldwide renown, but she's especially well known in Germany and Israel.
Throughout her long career, Esther Ofarim has recorded a number of stellar albums, including 'Esther' (misleadingly titled 'First Album') from 1972. After separating from Abi, she'd taken a break before going to a Munich studio to start working on this comeback album, now reissued for the first time! Accompanied by the Munich Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra and top guitarist Erich Ferstl, Esther Ofarim performed a highly sophisticated cross-section of international folk music - timeless songs in different languages without regard to short-lived trends. Bear Family is now re-issuing this rare album (previously unavailable on CD) in top sound quality, closing a gap in the catalog of this timeless artist.
