Revolutionary Pop songs

December 6, 1999
The Iranian

This album is one of the last Pop music tapes produced in Iran (Esfand 1357 / March 1979). The studios were trying to act "revolutionary" -- notice the album title and the songs. The cover picture is from the movie "Parvaaz dar qafas" with Saeed Kangarani and Farzaneh Davari. It was produced two months before the revolution, re-edited and privately screened. But after the revolution it was shelved forever because it did not meet the new Islamic censorship codes. A few months later this music tape was also labeled "un-Islamic" and banned. -- Thanks to Pedram Missaghi's Iran Media
