Product Description

Erkin Koray

Erkin Koray-S/T-


new LP

First proper reissue of Korays first album, an absolutely over the top debut album by the Turkish psychedelic guitar guru, which is not only the rarest of all of his albums, but also the rarest Turkish psychedelic album of them all; the record was released in 1973, but is actually culled from Korays singles from the previous five years. This wide range of dates (1968-73) encompasses a pretty potent period in music, and makes for great variety; some tracks have a kind of pre-psychedelic vibe, while others have the swirling hashish heaviness of that most elusive thing, a sound that one might deem "pure psychedelia"; in any case, every track has that unique Eastern feel that Koray brings to all his recordings. The end result is definitely on a par of greatness with "Elektronik Turkuler", which makes this a must have album for any psychedelic head! And as if that wasnt enough, there are eight incredible bonus cuts from the same period as the album tracks, only ever released as singles, that include some of the most blistering material Koray ever recorded. Wow! Liner notes have plentiful information on Erkin Korays early career, as well as lyrics for some songs... alas, only in Turkish.

The first ful album of work by Erkin Koray -- a Turkish rocker from the late 60s and early 70s, and one who did a lot to fuse American rock styles with "arabesk", a Turkish version of Arab popular music! Erkin started out in the beat group years, and some of the earlier tracks here show that influence -- but as time goes on, the guitars get heavier and mix more with traditional instrumentation to create a sound that's really unique -- almost an eastern take on progressive modes of the west, played to best effect by Koray on the electric baglama -- a weirdly tuned stringed instrument that's a bit like a trippy version of the lute! Some tracks here have vocals, others are more heavy on the instrumentals

Titles include "Istemem", "Cicek Dagi", "Nihansin Dideden", "Mesafeler", "Yagmur", and "Silinmeyen Hatiralar".
