Language – Persian
Cover – I’m A Believer (written by Neil Diamond)
A Monkees cover in Iranian waltz time – does it get any better than this? No, quite frankly, it doesn’t. Possibly the most brilliant thing I have ever heard! This whole compilation album is great, and the sleeve notes give an absolutely fascinating insight into musical life in Iran in the 1960s and 70s – apparently most bands played live and some were incredibly popular, but they tended not to make records as it was quite a difficult process, which in turn makes gems like this incredibly rare. Some wonderful soul has searched and delved and created this compilation for us. We are truly blessed!
