Suspect this stuff is very old-fashioned, would not strike a chord with modern-day Yemeni people.
Ha! I just found that, too. Yes, samples need Flash . But I'd just order the CD. Meanwhile I've already downloaded the liner notes (terrible quality, just bad, and not always straight, photocopies, but never mind). Interestingly, I also see a "Bukharian melody"- which I assume is from Bukhara, where I've been (several times) and even visited both the old and the new Synagogue! There is still a small Jewish community there. That CD looks like a must-have (for me).

Gosh this is all so exciting!
