A Smithsonian Folkways classic has been unearthed to introduce to a new generation. Just when you think every stone has been unturned and every archive obscurity has been re-introduced, this turns up and is made accessible at an affordable price tag. A record held in high regard by collectors and one that's I'd never even heard of until now.

It's amazing to think of the stuff that's still out there just waiting to be discovered. Kudos goes to Pre-Cert Home Entertainment for re-introducing this wonderful record. This was originally released back in 1985 and is a stellar example of an artists vision of the future through referencing the past. The past in this case being traditional Iranian folk music which is here combined with tape manipulation, electronics and field recordings. I think to some extent the pleasure you'll gain from the album will depend on how much you appreciate the aforementioned folk musics but the mixture with the electronics is what makes it in many ways remarkable. Sure the technology and techniques weren't exactly new at the time but I've personally never heard these two distinctive sounds / techniques fused in such a revolutionary way.

It feels like a buried time-capsule of Iranian folk music discovered and decoded by aliens. Most definitely a unique record!
