Album Review

Just like Volume 1, Ultimate Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Vol. 2 is a fantastic collection of Pakistani recordings, this time recorded in 1983 and 1984. At the time, Nusrat was a giant in Pakistan, but his star had yet to rise in the West. The main difference between this and Volume 1 is additional instrumentation on a few tracks. Of course there's harmonium, tabla, handclapping and vocals to which qanoun is added on one track, but there is also what sounds like clarinet and sarod on a couple others. But that's just the supporting cast, the main attraction here is the soaring, ecstatic voice of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. As with Volume 1, the choices here are somewhat arbitrary, but it's all well-recorded and exquisitely performed qawwali music. A bit more annotation as to recording specifics and sources would have been nice, but this is another excellent set of Nusrat's pure qawwali.
