Rain Rain Go Away - Bob Azzam & His Orchestra
"Rain Rain Go Away" is featured on big band crooner Bob Azzam's 1968 LP New Sounds. It's a groovy little, woeful number with some much sought after drum breaks. I don't know where this Egyptian born, Lebanese singer found the inspirational weather to record such a dope version of a children's rainy day nursery rhyme. However, after hearing his funky makeover any extra precipitation seems slightly more tolerable.

"Mustapha", or "Ya Mustapha" was Bob Azzam's most notable commerical hit, especially in France and Egypt.
