Notes

from the release notes:

this album refers to 'land of the lion and sun, or modern persia being experiences of life in persia from 1866 to 1881' by c j wills'

the passages dealing with the position of jews in persian society can be found on pp 52 and 74:

'as to the jews, their position is terrible. probably in no country of the world are they treated worse than in persia. beaten, despised and oppressed, cursed even by slaves and children, they yet manage to exist, earning their living as musicians, dancers, singers, jewellers, silver- and goldsmiths, midwifes, makers and sellers of wines and spirits. when anything very filthy is to be done a jew is sent for.' p. 74

complaints about his riding boots are numerous.
