Mediterranean music has come a long way in Israel, from its position as a perceived culturally inferior "ethnic" neighborhood entertainment in the 1950s to its conquest of Israel's airwaves and arenas toward the end of the 1990s and beyond with superstars such as Eyal Golan, Sarit Hadad and others.

This superb 5 CD package documents the evolution of Mediterranean and Mizrahi in Israel over the last half of the 20th century, including 88 hits by every single notable artist and band in that entire time frame, from Aris San and Joe Amar in the old days, to Shimi Tavori and Chaim Moshe during the transition, and with Zahava Ben and Amir Benayoun at the cutting edge.

This is an indespensible colleciton for any fan of Israeli or Mediterranean music!
