Umm Kulthum on LP's & CD's

This list is incomplete and may unfortunately be slightly unreliable as the most conflicting information is to be found in various catalogues issued by Sonodisc over the years. I hope I will get the time and opportunity to compare them myself but at the moment I am at the mercy of printed material and to any of you supplying information. I present this list maby a bit premature as I have gotten several requests for it and I hope it makes things more comprehensible than it confuses people.

This discography will hopefully be updated to reflect some of the instances were the LP-version is a different recording than the one on the CD. Generally speaking it seems that there is correspondence on most parts between the LP and the CD with the exception that the CD versions in general are a bit longer and therefore more complete. But i will try to indicate in a later revised version of this list what CD's definitely have other versions than the LP's.

There is another very disturbing and to me still confusing problem with the numbers of the LP's. It seems that Sonodisc catalogues and LP-record covers sometimes list the same title under different numbers. Maby they renumbered some of the LP's in later pressings of the same version of a song, but possibly they also released alternate versions, and sometimes it seems that they just printed the wrong numbers. As I have no way at the moment to compare these it is my hope that some of the more knowledgeable of you could help me out on this one, for instance you can see that SC-22107 was used for both Roubaiyat el Khayam and Baid Annak. I beleive that is caused by a misprint in some of Sonodiscs catalogues and that Baid Annak was never released as anything else than SC-22110, but there are some other questions remaining that will only be solved when one can compare them physically.

The titles that are listed as (E.P.) "Enregistrements Public" are so indicated in catalogue information from Sonodisc. Please note however, that several titles not marked (E.P.) actually may be edited live performances as well!

Finally should it please you to see the LP-cover I have scanned some of the covers and linked them to the corresponding numbers!
