Talagh

Back in 2013 I posted Talagh, a delirious and funky piece of Iranian pop from 1975, sung by Azerbaijani singer Googoosh. She was big in Iran before the revolution and then banned between 1979 and 2000. Israeli artist Alek Lee has gave it a bit of a makeover last year. Still delirious and funky, now with a 2016 edge. Free download. Apparently Talagh was sampled by Kanye West recently too for his own stab at ‘the greatest album ever made’ (although I think Ian McCulloch bagged that phrase and title back in 1984).
