Well, Cyrus Faryar is the bouzouk player on the experimental Cynicrustpetefredjohn Raga on Fred Neil's eponymous album from 1969. He was also a Beat in Honolulu in the late 50s and he produced an experimental psychedelic record on Elektra on the theme of the Zodiac.
This was The Zodiac Cosmic Sounds, an album written by Mort Garson with Paul Beaver on the Moog. It is pretty much of its time; acid jams, space Moog, mad spoken-word, it's all there.
His two following albums, Cyrus and Islands have some good moments (still making up my mind about it) - nice cover of The Dolphins, tho. They're on Spotify.
He's currently working on two new albums.
Find more info: Wiki page
and this seems to be Cyrus' new blog
The Zodiac - Capricorn: The Uncapricious Climber (1967)
Fred Neil - Cynicrustpetefredjohn Raga (1966)
PS: You'll find The Zodiac on Spotify by typing 'zodiac cosmic'
