UC250 (Middle) Eastern Underground

The 250th jubilee of this series could not have been celebrated in a better way. This compilation picks up where the fab "Raks! Raks! Raks!", "Waking Up Scheherazade" and "Persian Underground" have left us. So here’s 28 uncompiled Garage tunes (don’t fear lame folky sounds here!) from the Middle East and nations such as ISRAEL, LEBANON, IRAN, MAROCCo and BURMA (I know that’s FAR EAST, but to my ignorant ears all fits well). You will be surprised about the unique and very special approach by the musicians towards both melody sequences and rhythm patterns. This “eastern “approach comes alive not only in the originals but also in the cover versions; just listen to the hilarious "I’m a Believer" (track #15), and I guess you’ll know what I mean. A handful of instros tracks that glue it all together, and a few reel - to - reel demos, don’t mind the audio quality, which generally and surprisingly is quite good. I have added 2 tracks from CD - R "Guitars Of The Golden Triangle: Folk And Pop Music From Myanmar, Vol.2” and 1 song from CD - R "Iranian Alternative Music of 60's"), both available via Youtube (thanks for sharing!). Habibi! Belly-a-go- go! Raki and Shish Kebab!
