BENIMLE OYNAR MISIN


BÜLENT ORTAÇGIL - BENIMILE OYNAR MISIN?

NEW CD



Extremely rare and sought after album showing a different side of the incredibly rich Turkish late 60s/early 70s band. Gravel vocals, instrospective folk rock, mostly a calm album with beautiful songs and lyrics by songwriter Bulent Ortacgil. recorded in 1973/1974, it received 4 stars in Hans Pokora's Record Collector Dreams book.


From the hidden depths of the eastern Mediterranean, down in the Capadocian mistery lands, comes Bulent Ortaçgil, one of national musical treasures of Turkey, but one that to Western ears remains unheard. To this day.
 
Ortaçgil, or Bülent, which became his artistic name in his beginnings, during the much loved and never forgotten sixties, made a name to himself on the same scene as Fikret Kizilok, who has now made some waves since his inclusion on Damon and Naomi's compilation "International Sad Hits".
But Bülent's music, much as it was of its time, was not at all sad, even though it also came from the heart. And what a heart.
It could be said that his voice was indeed as sweet as that of the Golden Horn, and that his music united two continents as much as the Galata Bridge united two parts of Istanbul.
For Bülent's music was deeply Turkish but assimilated the folk flavours of the day, British or American, but the most gentle and perfumed ones. Want names? Donovan and Nick Drake, mainly.
 
Bülent's "Benimile Oynar Misin?" has to be heard to be believed, really.
 Do yourself a favour. Listen to Bülent. (Ferran Llauradó)
