Choubi Choubi – Folk & Pop Sounds From Iraq

CD (Item 586426) Sublime Frequencies, 1970s/1990s/2000s — Condition: Used
$11.99 ...

CD

A heady brew of unusual music from the Iraqi scene – material that's billed here as folk and pop, but which has a quality that's a lot different than those genres might sound in the US! The folksy cuts often have angular reed work in the mix, which really gives them a sharp edge – especially when aligned with the vocals – and the "pop" material is still often pretty edgey too, with qualities that almost remind us of Bollywood music at times – given the stuttering rhythms, nasally reed lines, and little bits of strings. As usual with Sublime Frequencies, the music here more than lives up to the promise of the label's name – truly unusual sounds that you'd be hard-pressed to find anywhere else!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.
