6/10 Phil Staff review, 23 June 2011
Finders Keepers follow their 'universally loved by everyone on the planet pretty much' Pomegranates comp with this... The first of a reissue programme of the Iranian '70s starlet Googoosh. Who? Apparently all of her records were destroyed after the Iranian revolution of 1979 so her wares have been tricky to find should anyone have actually heard of her to want to buy them. Fortunately Finders Keepers are there with their fingers on the pulse to bring you this comp of early 70's album tracks and 45's as a taster for more to come. There's a lot of early disco influences in here and listening to Nimeyeh Gomshodeyeh Man recorded in 1971 you can hear a lot of what turned into disco. I had no idea it started this early! The songs have an exotic feel to them and you can't but help tap your feet or do those slow nodding head movements that you have no control over. All good I guess and if you're into exotic Middle Eastern sounding music with a loungey kitsch flavour then this is for you!
