    SELDA

    Vurulduk Ey Halkim Unutma Bizi

    [engl] There were female Turkish folk singers before Selda Bagcan, but none whose hot- blooded voice carried such righteously angry words & none who also accompanied themselves on guitar. She began her career singing at her brothers' Beethoven nightclub in Ankara while she went to school for physics during the day. Her 1st album had help from the cream of the crazy Istanbul pop scene, and cuts from the same sessions were also released on this 2nd one. While the direction is folky overall, there's fuzz, zooming synthesizers, and heavy flute to be found. When Selda performed the title track in 1977 in a coastal town not far from Istanbul, her protest lyrics, though taken from an old poem, got her heckled by audience members who screamed that she should go back to Moscow! Find out why this brawny mama couldn't be stopped by a military government that put her on trial 9 times, and could call herself the bitter voice of the Turkish people.

    SHAHRAM

    Shahram

    [engl] You know how record nerds are. They?ll gladly tell you that a dawdling Moldovian choir of 70 year old grandmothers is the next brick in your psychfunksplosion journey. But Shahram Shabpareh is the real thing. Colorful arrangements of blurting horns, evil bass grooves, cheesy organs & thick strata of overlapping percussion instruments going off like microwave popcorn. As the leader of an Iranian 60s garage band, the Rebels, and later a 70s solo singer, Shabpareh was never happy just tossing a few moves from Abba in front of whatever was on the local charts already. He wrote & recorded hard rock & funky piano riffs that were built bulldozer tough & would?ve stuck out in an American trailer park or a London pub just as easily as they did in Tehran. Not that he wasn?t afraid to put someone elses idea to good use, as he certainly makes superb use of the Kinks? chords from ?You Really Got Me?. Its more that Shahrams rock cojones have caused him to make blistering music again & again over the years, with little regard for where it comes from. Heres a well- deserved compilation of his best tracks, with insert/booklet with liner notes, and 180gr vinyl.

    New Hondo

    [engl] An otherworldly mix of Cosmic Disco, Funk, Boogie and traditional Flamenco styles by Spanish "cantaor" El Turronero!! Featuring the legendary Josep Llobell (Oliver’s Planet, Enterprise...) at the controls. "New Hondo" was originally released in 1980 on the Spanish Belter label and in a similar way to Camarón’s "La leyenda del tiempo", it was an adventurous project where the producers tried to modernize traditional flamenco music. Featuring an amazing studio production (analogue keyboards, synths, disco drums & orchestrations, electric sitar...), it includes the cosmic disco classic "Las Penas", the psychedelic funk of "Si yo volviera a nacer" and more.

    El Apagon. Peruvian Chicha from the Horóscopo Vaults, 1978 - 1988

    [engl] Founded by Juan Campos in 1977, the Horoscopo label was the major outlet for the real Peruvian chicha sound: a surreal and irresistible blend of psychedelic fuzztone guitars, infectious echo drenched vocals, electronic keyboards and tropical / Andean rhythms. During its 15 years of existence, Discos Horóscopo was the home of the biggest names of the chicha sound. From the legendary Chacalón & La Nueva Crema to Los Destellos, Los Ovnis, Grupo Alegria… We present the first ever compilation dedicated to this groundbreaking Peruvian label. 11 tracks taken from rare 45s and LPs. “It was these groups that, as part of a cultural complex where Discos Horóscopo had a central role, built and developed the stage of "chicha music", filling the lives of thousands of men and women who made us of their right to joy in a changing yet greatly convulsed environment that, nevertheless, offered opportunities to build a better life in the future.” – Carlos Leyva Arroyo

    Sedayeh Del

    [engl] Khosh Amadid, friends, to this 4th volume in a series of compilations highlighting fiercely rare 45s from Tehrans pre- revolutionary golden age. Vivacious ladies with sassy Dorothy Hamill haircuts and skin- bearing pantsuits were once plastered across Tehrans newsstands. Those gorgeous sirens and their hunky male counterparts made all the teens sway to hand drums that boinked in 6/8 time. Plush brass & string arrangements took their cues from Latin grooves, psychedelic guitars, ritzy soundtracks, and sugary pop from the West. Within months of the 1979 Islamic revolution, pop music was labeled a symbol of the previous regime and became illegal overnight. In those same months, it also became illegal for women to be in public without conforming to the hijab dress code. By hook and crook, these little round records survived, and they attest to a time when Tehrans homegrown and exiled populations would have been united in an easygoing love for funk bass & buzzing synthesizers. Hear the tunes that rivaled the hits of Googoosh & Kourosh by singers who only recorded a few precious singles, but don?t think for a minute that Tehrans nightingales have run out of surprises for your ears. The discoveries are just beginning.

    Tani – Disco Rumba And Flamenco Boogie

    [engl] he Disco Music, Philadelphia Sound and Salsoul fever were also present in the Rumba–Pop and Flamenco–Funk scene of Spain in the late ’70s / early ’80s. Producers, sound engineers and studio musicians collaborated closely with flamenco / rumba singers and bands. Among others, we got to highlight the production / studio work that genius Josep Llobell did for the Belter label in Barcelona. Here you got 12 disco–rumba–flamenco–boogie bombs, a time machine to the boites and discotheques of the late 70s and the perfect soundtrack to an imaginary "Kinki" cinema soundtrack.

    Tisheh o risheh

    [engl] Ohhh, those rolling 6/8 time signatures, wah- ed out guitars, throbbing bass lines & 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 & tough alike, who all ran out & 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 & screen who once filled glossy magazines to promote their latest musical adventures. Remastered sound, colour insert with pictures and detailed liner notes. CD comes with colour booklet with pictures and detailed liner notes.

    Zendooni

    [engl] Zendooni celebrates a time when Pop artists in Iran ruled the country. During the 70s, before the Revolution, Occidental and Middle East mannerisms collided and the result was a new kind of Iranian Pop which incorpotated different genres and arrangements to its Persian roots. Touches of Funk, Jazz, Latin, Bossa, Progressive- Psychedelic sounds and Morricone / Blaxploitation styled soundtracks can be heard on this collection, culled from miraculously survived vinyls and cassettes. A surreal voyage back to the Golden Age of Persian Pop. A vibrant time when female singers like Nooshafarin, Azita, Pouran or Ramesh appeared in colourful teen mags dressed in full hippie fashion. We are proud to present for the first time to Western ears amazing examples of Persian psych- prog like ''Safar'' by Hassan Shamaizadeh and ''Vi Bafa'' by Kambiz ; Persian funk by Azita, Nooshafarin, Emad Raam, Pooneh ; Bollywood styled sounds by Ahmad Wali & Hangama and much more.

    VAMPIRES, THE

    Vampires Underground

    [engl] Where does a band of Indian guys in East South Africa even play, and how on earth would they end up with fuzzy guitar riffs, wah- wah and funky drums? Riddles abound when you discover a platter like this one. Durban, famous for its beaches and also for beach signs that marked off areas for white people, had a very unique dance band scene in 1971. The Vampires are a strange footnote in a strange world, and they slosh through each song like they're having the time of their lives. The mostly instrumental band covers everything from a soundtrack that prefigures the drama of Ennio Morricone fuzz, to middle of the road Nashville country, to Zeppelin, with flute, organ and fuzz guitar high in the mix.

    VARGAS "La Terremoto", DOLORES

    Anana Funk Hip 1970–1975

    [engl] "Dolores Vargas was our wildest performer, our Spanish Tina Turner, Ikettes–era. In my opinion, she was a better dancer and singer than Lola Flores but she never received the same media attention than the famous Lola. Maybe it’s better this way. Dolores Vargas is wine for sommeliers and since now, music for connoisseurs." – Txarly Brown Here’s an anthology dedicated to the ’70s period of Dolores Vargas, known as "The Earthquake" due to her wild and frenzied dancing style. In these songs, released 1970–1975, you’ll hear killer sound and production mixing Funk, Rock and Pop with the powerful vocal style of "The Earthquake". Including real gipsy–funk bombs like "A la pelota" "Anana Hip" or "La Hawaiana" along with her bizarre cover version of "Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep" and much more. If you’re looking from Flamenco Funk and groovy Rumba Pop, look no further.
