Ganimian & His Oriental Music Come With Me To The Casbah Limited Vinyl LP

Oft overlooked for over half a century while misfiled amongst exploit bellydance records and holidaymaker souvenirs this one-off, twelve track album is the only existing full-length record by the best-kept mutant musical secret of the Armenian American diaspora, oud pop maestro Charles 'Chick' Ganimian. This album includes all of Ganimian's recordings including the rare singles for Atco and East West which sit awkwardly next to bizarre and unique takes on popular American standards, enhancing the exciting freak factor of this record which simply could not be made by today's stifling self-aware anti-standards. Aside from rare (poorly recorded) private family tape, this album is the only chance to hear the music of this lost enigma of early world music, Eastern fusion and a missing kink in the fabric of New York pop music history.
