"Now-Again Records presents exact reproductions of two of the four 7" singles that the Iranian psychedelic rock musician Kourosh Yaghmaei released before the 1979 Islamic Revolution. Taken from Back from the Brink, the only legitimately licensed Kourosh collection, these recordings were thought lost after Islamic fundamentalists took control of Iran. They weren't: Kourosh had protected them -- along with key ephemera from the '70s. Here, fans of the 7" vinyl format can purchase Kourosh's last two singles as he originally released them. The first single presented here, 'Hajme Khali,' is a masterful psychedelic dirge that was included on this label's Forge Your Own Chains anthology. 'Akhm Nakon,' the b-side, is perhaps Kourosh's most famous song in the West and is psychedelic funk music at its best."
