Item ID: 384235

In 1970's Teheran, the classically-trained Ramesh played the
serious, quiet marquess against Googoosh's langorous pop
princess. Both singers made the papers every time they changed
their haircuts and appeared on tv frequently. However, while
Googoosh now runs a cosmetics company in Los Angeles, they say
Ramesh was killed in the political turmoil of the late '70s
because she was a lesbian. Nobody knows for sure. What we do
know is that she was a funky queen whose rich voice sits like a
fat mink coat, twirling its melancholy way around long-necked
lutes, backed by flurries of frame and goblet drums. And the
sleazy, Western brass, strings and synths are here too,
slathered across rare singles for your shameless dancing
pleasure. Welcome to the unpredictable world of
pre-revolutionary Iranian pop music. LP with insert/booklet including extensive linernotes and pictures.

Also available: RAMESH (CD).
