The Essensial Eighties With Hamid Al Shaery--The Man Who Rocked These Years

He first started with his guitar, then he went to the keyboard and got Arabs to dance to his beat. He was the fixer, the guy you go to to make any song you had cool. He made those slow an mellow songs to upbeat hits, that got you excited to play such cassettes in the car. If a star was big in the eighties and early nighties, know that the Libyan Hamid Al Shaery worked with him or her.

He also produced records for new comers and help make them stars, see him this time grab his guitar and sing in this retro music video--it feels like a Gypsy Kings settings. It's a good song but it's not meant to get you to the dance floor, it's a soothing song.

Luckily, Hamid is still around singing records and producing new music at his studio and his radio--one of the most popular in Egypt and in Libya. Let's see how many pop stars you can spot in this music video--I think I see Ehab Tawfik and Mostfa Amar.
