Kourosh’s “Back From The Brink: Pre-Revolution Psychedelic Rock From Iran 1973-1979″

Now-Again | Jul. 25, 2011 | News |

Earlier this year, we announced that we’d be releasing our anthology of Iranian rock godfather Kourosh Yaghmaei’s Pre-Revolution recordings in three formats… and we promised details in “a few weeks.” Well, it’s been a few months – sorry! – but we’re finally ready: Kourosh Yaghmaei – Back From The Brink is now available as a hardbound 2CD/book, a 6panel/3LP (with book) and 4×7″ box set (again, with book).

The details are:

Buy 2/CD: 2 discs in a hardbound 52-page book full of liner notes, full annotation, rare photos and ephemera. Note: CD version contains songs not available on vinyl; text is in English only.
Buy 3/LP: 3 records housed in a 2-panel jacket and comes with a download card for all audio and also a 28-page book full of liner notes, full annotation, rare photos and ephemera. Note: CD version contains some songs not available on vinyl; text is in English only.
Buy 4×7” Box Set: Exact reproductions of the 4 picture-sleeve 7” singles Kourosh released before the Revolution, housed in a magnet-clasped box and comes with a 44-page book full of liner notes, full annotation, rare photos and ephemera. Note: text is in English only.

So – if you’re at all interested in psychedelic rock recorded on the fringe, dropped at the brink of the abyss, and brought back in its stereophonic glory, click above and buy. You’re supporting the only officially licensed compilation of Yaghmaei’s work on the market. But, if you need more reasons, check out some photos of the various packages below. And download a sample track – “Hajme Khali” – which first appeared on our Forge Your Own Chains anthology.

    7″ box set you say? This is now even more highly anticipated than before. Looks stunning.

    This looks well worth the wait – thanks Egon!
    Hope the some of those 7″ boxes will make it to UK retailers – looks like I’ll be picking that up and the LP set :-)
