Sabicas Discography

OK, this is the best I can do right now. These are all LPs. I won’t vouch for the dates, as you get different stories depending on whom you listen to. Decca LPs, vexatiously, carried no dates anywhere.

Albums available on CD are in green, on MP3 in blue, and unavailable in their entirety (as far as I’m aware) except on LP in red. The many anthologies are not included.

You should be able to find my reviews of most of these on Amazon US and/or UK.
