70s funk and soul... in Iran

You know, that country we almost invaded.

A few months ago, the record dealer who sold me the majority of his Iranian collection told me that his recent finds in Tehran — including Mehr Pooya's solitary LP of fuzz-guitar-soaked sitar funk — were going to a well-heeled international collector. He'd already sold the heavy psych pieces and the Iranian presses of Led Zeppelin albums and The Beatles'Abba Road [sic] for stacks of euros before I got to dig through his collection.
