Boomkat Product Review:
"In 1970s Tehran, 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 & 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 it's melancholy way around long-necked lutes, backed by flurries of frame & goblet drums.
And the sleazy, Western brass, strings & synths are here too, slathered across rare singles for your shameless dancing pleasure. Welcome to the
unpredictable world of pre-revolutionary Iranian pop music. CD with booklet including extensive linernotes and pictures."
