Following the footsteps of the celebrated «Zendooni» (shipping your orders now), here comes another comp dedicated to the Persian pop scene of the 70s. And what a comp! Exotic psych, funk and pop doesn’t get better than this. We offer you a 19 track selection culled from rare vinyl pressings and cassettes which have miracously survived until now.

East meets West in an explosive way…wait till you hear fuzz bombs like «Woman» by Shahram and «Baanoye Sahar Aavaaz» by Soli, awesome sitar funk by Neli ready to burn any dancefloor; Famous Persian pop star Dariush appears with a powerful instrumental funk number, «Nefrin Nameh». Dig the processed flute and heavy drum breaks of «Bia Bare Safar Bandim» by Mohammed Noori. Catchy psych- pop by Amir Rassaie. Persian ladies are also represented by ace tracks from Marjan, Mahasti, Beti…

Remastered sound, colour insert with pictures and detailed liner notes.

«…Pre- revolution singles from Persia sport a unique and urbane compound of orchestral / pop influences from Europe and folk/classical ones that are as old as the recorded history of humans…»

«…You?ll find throbbing funk- lounge rubbing side by side with 13th century Sufi poetry & gushe. The endless combinations and possibilities of modernism caused a flat- out explosion of fascinating music. And it seems every detail was reflected in a sea- spray of dark- eyed chanteuses with Dorothy Hamill haircuts…».
