Glen Kabul

As far as I know, the only recording of this tune is by the Old Blind Dogs, in a set with The Trip to Pakistan and The Fourth Floor. Since the other two tunes were in TheSession’s library, I felt like this one should be too, especially because the exotic mode sounds really cool with the other two.

Do note that the mode is not actually A minor; it’s closer to A Phrygian with a major third (or D harmonic minor, in terms of the notes, but the tonic is very clearly A).
