rubáiyát omar khayyám


Rubáiyát is a compilation album, released in 1990 to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Elektra Records record label. The concept was to feature present-day Elektra artists covering songs from the historic catalogue of recordings of Elektra Records and its sister label Asylum Records.

Two long-running Elektra artists - Jackson Browne and The Cure - were featured in a double capacity. They were featured as performing artists (covering songs from Elektra's early canon) and were also represented by having songs that they had recorded for Elektra, covered by newer Elektra artists.

A promotional version was also released featuring not only the commercially-released version of the album, but also a second version featuring each recording in its original incarnation.
