Dariush: "Booyeh Khoobeh Gandom"
These are incredible! They are the front
cover of "Booyeh Khoobe Gandom"
the song that Daryush sang in the 70's, and I think it was the beginning
of the end... If this song didn't start it, it sure helped feed the "anti
shah" student/college movement in Iran.
The front cover of the record itself, as you can see, says "not
permitted for broadcast in radio or television...." I happened to have
2 of these records.... On an occasion, I presented one copy to Shahyar Ghanbari,
the song's lyricist... He was so surprised!! He signed my copy with the
kind words you see on the picture.
Finally, Mr. Ghanbari refers to this song as "Booyeh Khoobeh Gandom,"
not "Booyeh Gandom," as we all refer to it. He should know; he
Got any interesting nostalgic photos?
