    no way, Rhythms From the Orient is his masterpiece. although that album is excellent too. thank god the Sublime Frequencies compilation really does compile most of his best tracks, since most of his best albums are mad hard to acquire without spending a lot of buck.

    Belly Dance from Lebanon album is probably his best, and Raksat el Jedane from it is my favorite of his, it's the last track.
