Laavi – Stereo Disco

The music industry of Tehran in the 70’s was a bit backwards and unprofessional.  It was more similar to how things where done in the 50’s in the U.S with Sun Records.  Basically the record stores were the record companies.

One such combo “record store and also record company” was Laavi- Lavi Stereo Disco

The store was very important as it was the last resort for music producers when they were attempting to release a record where radio was not interested in playing them.

So for example, the big star of Persian music Dariush  ( https://www.facebook.com/dariush2000/?fref=ts )  had some of his most important songs released by Stereo Disco Lavi

These records then went on to define the style of Persian pop music.
