I very vividly remember being in 9th grade (high school in the 70s in Iran) when Gita became instantly famous with her song "Khaahesh Mikonam". Everywhere you went the song was playing. It became the favorite phrase for the high school boys to get our attention. As a girl would walk by, the boys would say "Alo!"

Gita has a very distinct and unique voice with a genuinely warm personality. I saw her perform at a cabaret called "Ghasr-e Shirin" in Tehran which many remember with its Iranian decor and the waiters who were dressed in Kurdish costumes. I am happy to have obtained the "Naameh Resoon" to share with the readers. It will bring back many fond memories.
