Record Collector (magazine) (p.82) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "The results are mesmeric in parts, and there is variety aplenty on the seven extended track here where oud and guitar interplay..."

Album Notes

Released originally in 1969, MIDDLE EASTERN ROCK is a unique, compelling fusion record from Armenian-American oud player John Berberian. The Rock East Ensemble, Beberian's backing band, consists of the artist's standard group, which specializes in traditional Armenian music with a jazz edge, and American session musicians who bring more of a rock sound. The results, which blend elements of psychedelia, free jazz, surf music, and various klezmer, African, and Middle Eastern textures, are dazzling, and are sure to thrill anyone with a taste for rare "outside" albums.
