Release Date:08/23/2011;Notes:Now-Again Records is proud to present 'Back from the Brink,' the only legitimately licensed collection of the Godfather of Iranian Psychedelic Rock, Kourosh Yaghmaei. Known within the Iranian Diaspora simply by his first name, 'Kourosh'. Pre revolution 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. Their collection here spread over Two CDS, a 3 LP and a 4X7' box set. Bolstered by Kourosh's first person recollections of Iran's 70S Rock scene and it's death after the revolution, tells the story of an immensely talented artists' desire to persevere in the face of terrible adversity. Kourosh Yaghmaei and his brothers Kamran and Kambiz were amongst the few inspired Iranian Musicians determined to change Tehran's musical landscape in the late 60s and early 70s. The trio armed with rented, second and Instruments and records by the Ventures, the Kinks, the Doors, merged Western Garage Rock, Psychedelia and Iranian Folkloric Music to create a sound unlike that came before them. Later, inspired by the the unlikely Duo of Elton Ohn and James Taylor, Kouroshs' Music took a sophisticated turn, and he churned out Funky, Progressive Rock that is as imminently enjoyable as it is impossible to categorize. His star on the rise was knocked off course by the Revolution, and It's backdrop of Islamic Fundamentalists burning record companies and harassing musicians. But while most pre revolution musicians including his brothers fled Iran in 1979, Kourosh stayed, loyal to the country of his birth. He has suffered a performance and recording ban for twenty-two out of the last thirty-two years. Yet he remains stoic and resolved to continue bolstering Iranian Musical Tradition. Kourosh still lives in Tehran and is pleased that his story and his glorious 70s recordings, will finally spread the world over. This essential piece of Iran's musical history is slso accompanied by a full color book and contains never before seen photos and Ephemera.;Track List:1. Gol E Yakh;2. Dar Enteha;3. Hajme Khali;4.
