It seems hard for most westerners to imagine today, but in the middle part of last century, the Iranian government was very supportive of the western way of life. American and British records had a strong influence, and the music that came out of this renaissance (’53-’79) was an incredible mix of rock, jazz, soul, funk, and indigenous music.
Finally, 40 years later, some of the long lost popular music of Iran is beginning to resurface. Secret Stash Records is extremely proud to announce this release that focuses exclusively on Funk and Soul tunes recorded in Iran during the 70s. These tracks have been hand selected after hundreds of hours of digging and searching through almost forgotten archives. They are a mix of instrumental, vocal, and English cover songs. This record is packed full of deep grooves, killer breaks, and high energy, all with a healthy dose of Persian influence. Each LP comes with a free digital download of the entire album and is packaged in a re-sealable dust bag.
