IRAN

In Iran there were no specific Dave Dee (Dozy Beaky Mick and Tich) releases. But some DDDBMT songs were released on more-artists-EP’s.
We adapted the following info from http://www.persiandiscography.com/45S.htm

The first Persian 45s recorded for “AHANG” (means “song”) label in early 1959 and produced in Germany. By mid 1960, more than 200 records were released as 45 rpm 7″ records, beside 3 “AHANG” LPs. Main artists of these records are Delkesh, Viguen, Mehrpooya, Pooran and Manuchehr and most of them are examples of a new genre in Persian music, may be called “imported pop” and show the influence of western pop, jazz and blues. Ahang records were distributed by Beethoven company based in Manuchehri ave. in Tehran owned by Karim Chamanara, then Ahang label changed to “Ahang e Rooz” and stayed the most important 45 rpm between 1966 and 1977.
The local companies who were owners of 78 rpm labels, changed their format to 45 rpm and beside new recordings, transferred some of their best sellers to 45 vinyl records. MUSICAL RECORD COMPANY (M.R.C) kept on its label and not a long later changed it to MUSICAL and then to MERCURI MUSICAL  based in Elizabeth Blvd. in Tehran with a general colored jacket instead of the normal white non-printed jackets.
SHAHERZAD reproduced some its 78 rpm records in new format (45 rpm) but was left very soon and before 1961 and substituted by IRAN GRAM label. This company was based in Tehran, Naderi avenue.
ROYAL stayed the most active label of 3 mentioned 78 Persian labels up to 1975 and beside reproducing some old records in 45 rpm format, prepared many new recordings of different artists and in all genres of Persian music
