CHANTS RÉVOLUTIONNAIRES D'OMAN (Expression Spontanée) France 197?
Interesting & important live recording of voices, hand percussion, stringed instruments (oud mostly), reeds. Especially s1 is great.
Record: G; a few light lines & scuffing only, but vinyl is hazy (every copy I've had has looked like this more or less); plays with background surfnoise, although you won't notice very much of it except for between tracks. I believe neither recording nor pressing are perfect, so some noise will likely always be part of the experience.

Price: SEK 60 / $7

Not sure when this issue is from - it's definitely old, but has grey deep groove labels, not dark blue with gold or silver print. Matrix
numbers are the same as the 2nd set of such listed for the orig 1955 issue seen on Discogs (not that info on there is especially trust-worthy).

NEW! [FOLKLORE TUNISIEN] Oum Ezzine El Bouhalia / Amane Amane Ya El Manie (Ennagham) France 196?7?
Sorry, no idea what this is - above is what info I can gather from cover/labels. It's a Tunisian 7" trad folk release though & very good too -  intense sounds with percussion, vocals & what's possibly a mey blowing pretty wildly.
Record: nice F; light surfmarks & faint scratches, nothing very deep or ugly. Both sides open with some snap/crackle pop, but pick up quickly - s1 plays pretty good, s2 has a bit more of background noise/light pops for a while, but nothing too horrible.

AKBAR GOLPAYEGANI - Del e Khoon 2 (?) Iran 196?7?
I had this listed previously as a 'mystery disc', but thanks to Jon J & his Iranian friend, I can know inform you more properly about this... artist's also known as Golpa & there's violin by Iranian master musician Habibollah Badi Ee. Title translates to "Heart and Blood". And it's still a very fine record in a haunting trad-sounding style. Email for a soundclip. Very long playing time for a 45 two tracker!
Record: looks VG with superficial marks, but plays with surfnoise throughout - possibly/presumably not the greatest pressing. Really tiny warp nap.

NEW! MOHAMED JERRARI - Ouene Ayamek Ya Karrita / Yali Tajinek Bou Narin (El Fen) France 196?/7?
7" in great pic sleeve (labels look way cool too!) by Tunisian musician who had lots of releases... unfortunately I'm not familiar with him at all, but this a cool spin - s1 opens with some brief sound effects before it gets a more typical thing going, with percussion, reeds, something violin-ish & vocals; up-tempo & intense & it actually reminds me a bit of Devil's Anvil or Orient Express (hey, I'm a psych guy first & foremost), minus the electrified western vibes. S2 is slightly more laidback, but still pretty good.
