V/A- Waking Up Scheherazade Vol. 2: 60's & 70's Cross-Over Rock from North Africa & The Middle East (Grey Past, 2010)

"We are finally back with a second compilation of the rarest of the rarest from countries that now are slowly mapped when it comes to the world's rock heritage. From Syria to Morocco youngsters were going for the hip new thing all in their own unique way creating these records that are cherished by all lovers of rare early rock trash. Though these fantastic sounds are now partly captured by harsh religious reality these records stand proud as the voice of a generation that grabbed the opportunities for creating new sounds! -Marthy Huiboki" (from the inside cover)


A tight jam. LP only release. 320 vinyl rip by yours truly.
