Khamis El Fino - Music for the Classical Oud

Great record. Live album. Sounds like the musicians are in the room with the listener. I love it.

Recorded during a concert at Asia House on December 1, 1963, for the Society of Asian Music. Lovingly preserved and (thankfully) issued by Smithsonian Folkways. Amazingly, the Folkways site has a PDF scan of the original vinyl and liner notes here. Highly legible, too.
