"Grattis Victoria" revisited, yet again, in the absence of anything else to write about.

So there is no news at the moment about Salem, and I am now having to accept the fact that this will probably be the case for most of 2008.

Still no sign of any material being released in the UK either. Maybe I'm wrong but I think that his record company will now wait till the second album is released before releasing anything over here - I had really hoped that "This Is Who I Am" would get a UK release early in 2008 but that doesn't look like happening now, but as ever I hope I'm proved wrong. This blog will continue though! Even if we don't have anything to write about :(

In the meantime, the "Grattis Victoria" concert from 14 July 2007 is still available over at http://www.svt.se/. As if anyone needs reminding, this was the night when I discovered Salem Al Fakir and my life was never the same again!!!

If you haven't seen this yet (and why not???) check out http://svt.se/svt/play/video.jsp?a=867294 and at 25 minutes and 30 seconds Salem sings "It's True" and "Dream Girl". I've watched this about 300 times now but still love it, because he is such an entertaining performer who enjoys every moment of what he is doing. Brilliant!!
