A collection of rare Iranian Pop/Rock from the '70s. Ohhh, those rolling 6/8 time signatures, wah-ed out guitars, throbbing bass lines and shimmery disco strings. After two sets of singles from the jet-setting 1970s Tehran pop scene, Pharaway Sounds brings you a third round-up of tunes from just before the Iranian revolution. You'll find rockers from bands like the Rebels, making their way through the western sounds of the late 70s. But maybe more important, hear the voices of the girls, sweet and tough alike, who all ran out and got their hair cut in a foxy Hamill camel just like trend-setter Googoosh. A set that veers from gypsy fiddles to crime jazz piano to Abba knock-offs, and it's all from the teen idols of stage and screen who once filled glossy magazines to promote their latest musical adventures.
