Erkin Koray Elektronik Turkuler
His first album proper (following a collection of singles), and his best, from 1974. Bunalim and Baris Manco bassist Ahmet Guvenc rocking steady beneath EK's moody baritone and electric-baglama riff-outs.



Land Of Kush Monogamy
Sensational, potty mixture of Eastern Sounds, psych, free and drone, plus art filth, by this twenty-three piece from Montreal, led by oudist and composer Sam Shalabi. Check it out.



Let No One Judge You Early Recordings From Iran, 1906-1933
Ravishingly beautiful, achingly precious songs and instrumentals, sumptuously presented: the Royal Court Orchestra in 1906 through to a hauntingly soulful Hafez setting by Moluk Zarrabi of Kashan, from 1933.



Baris Manco Dunden Bugune
His LP debut from 1971, collecting singles and other stuff from the previous few years. Landmark Turkish psych rock, including classics like Derule and Daglar, and the brutal sample-prone wah wah of Kucuk.



Abbass Mehrpouya Mehrpouya Sitar
Amazingly deep and grizzly psych funk from mid-70s Iran. The eleven-minute African Jumbo is a gone dog: brilliant sitars and flutes, heavy drums, horns, percussion. Warmly recommended.

Abbass Mehrpouya Soul Raga: Anthology
Selected from several singles and one LP issued between 1968-76. The lachrymose flute and organ dirges of his early work, shading into his signature, sophisticated, sumptuous, in-thing Iranian sitar-funk.



Mogollar Split
Classic Turkish psych: rare, early sides by Mogollar; and a selection from Siluetler's sole album.



Nightingales And Canaries
A radiant Nagoski selection from the 30s and 40s. Christian and Jewish US immigrants from Anatolia, Istanbul and Roumelia, flirty and rocking; more aching, artful performances from Turkish Muslim women.



Open Strings Early Virtuoso Recordings From The Middle East, And New Responses
Forgotten masterpieces, out-of-this-world improvisations from the 1920s; and dazzling commissions by Sir Richard Bishop, Six Organs Of Admittance and co. 'Dextrous, frenzied, fearless... awesome' (Plan B).

Qat, Coffee And Qambus Raw 45s From Yemen
Vintage 60s and 70s oud and vocal music — part of the classical Arabic musical tradition, yet taking its rhythmic lead as much from the East African coast (just twenty miles across the Red Sea).

Rabih Beaini Albidaya
RB aka Morphosis and Upperground cohorts: cello, sax, electronics; Lebanese folk, middle eastern jazz; 'tribal drums, marketplace noise, synth experiments, arpeggiated space transmissions, eerie Wu-Tang vocals.'



Salah Ragab Egyptian Jazz
Recorded in Heliopolis, Egypt, 1968-1973, with influences like Mongo Santamaria, Randy Weston, and Sun Ra (with whom Ragab toured extensively a decade later).



Elias Rahbani Mosaic Of The Orient
The younger of the two Rahbani brothers, who dominated and revolutionized Lebanese music in the 1960s. Drawing on the two volumes originally released in the mid-1970s.



Ramesh
'In 1970s Tehran, the classically-trained Ramesh played the serious, quiet marquesa against Googoosh’s languorous pop princess.' Vintage Iranian pop from rare singles: lutes, goblet drums, brass, strings, synths.
