Easily the best-known performer in Lebanon, and arguably the Arab world, Fairouz is best-known for her long collaboration with the composer-lyricist team Assi and Mansour Rahbani. She scored her first hit single with the brothers' love song "Itab" (Blame) in 1952, but popular history recounts that she'd already found some local celebrity the late 1940s, performing as the lead voice in a choral group.In the decades that followed "Itab," Fairouz sang on dozens of LPs, performed in the steady stream of musical theater pieces assembled by the Rahbani brothers and three feature films.When Assi Rahbani passed away in 1986, most of her subsequent recordings featured compositions by her son Ziad (who also produced "Eh Fi Amal," among other records).Like several of her tunes in the Rahbani brothers' songbook, "Lameen" is inspired by an earlier work, "Pour qui veille l'etoile," which debuted in the 1950s, performed by French crooner Gilbert Becaud.
