Hanoch & Arzi in Caesaria
One of the most hyped Israeli rock concerts of the year now comes to you on CD. Once competitors, rock giants Shalom Hanoch and Shlomo Artzi, have united to bring local music fans an awesome double CD album of the best of both their songs.
From "Kama Tov Shebat Habayta" to "Yareach" to "Gever Holech Le'eebud", fans of this genre of music will love this album.
Hanoch and Artzi have each stamped the Israeli rock scene with their folk-rock musical styles. Most of their fans are devoted to both of them. And so, for them to hook up was unexpected but not outrageous.
While it's touching to hear Hanoch sing Artzi and Artzi sing Hanoch, for the most part it sounds like they preferred to duet ather than offer solos of one another's signature songs. Duets are always good, but solos are sharper. Hearing the crowd before each track brings the listener into the excitement of the crowd at Caesaria Amphitheater.
Overall, Artzi fans and Hanoch followers alike will find this album favorable.
