Groovy Brit tunes with exotic Far East influences – affectionately compiled by the deep digging geniuses at Trunk
Records! Persian Pop & Casbah Jazz From The Wild British Isles is an apt description, alright – as the vibe is very much in a bright, groovy late 50s/
early 60s Brit mode, with jazzy pop and hip soundtrack style to spare – with lyrical and instrumental odes to the Far East that are sweet and endearing in ways that transcend the cheeky exotica of the time. Wonderful stuff – with tunes by The Beverley Sisters, Chico Arnez, Johnny Keating, Tony Osborne, Ray Ellington and more. 16 tracks in all: "Sphinx Won't Tell" by Beverley Sisters, "Caravan" by Stanley Black, "Persian Twist" by Charles Blackwell, "Marrakesh" by Tony Osborne, "Climb Up The Wall" by Yana, "Miserlou" by Stanley Black, "Turkish Coffee" by Tony Osborne, "The Sultan Of Bezaaz" by Ray Ellington and more.
