Tisheh o Risheh - Funk & Pop from Iranian Pre Revolution Generation (1970)
Leave it to the fine folks at Pharaway Sounds for compiling and remastering these long lost gems of the 70's from Pre Revolution Persia. So far this is a theee volume set with Tisheh o Risheh representing volume 3.
This two LP set features 19 rare pop, psychedelic and funk tunes with lots of grooves and cool rhythms for the jet setting Iranian pop genre.
The title of this album comes from a Iranian proverb that interprets like "even the tallest tree has an axe waiting for its roots" and the title is featured on the LP and sung by tenor Amir Rassaie. I love the theremin-like synth in the back ground making this tune the center piece for me on this comp.
I will have to track the other 2 volumes down shorlty.......i'm hooked
