Editorial Reviews

Turkey is often referred to as the meeting point between East and West, a statement verified by this selection of choice Turkish grooves. The western rock, psych, funk and jazz influences that began to be incorporated into traditional Turkish sounds during the late 60s and 70s can be heard here, as the Anadolu pop sound of Turkeyma balanced these new elements with the complex sounds and rhythms developed over many years. All tracks are referenced from their original 7 inch releases, painstakingly tracked down from various sources in and around Istanbul. The marriage of these styles is original, captivating and bound to freak you out.

Format: Audio CD
This isn't going to be a comprehensively or deeply researched review, but here's my two cents. Though its various artists, it's not unlike listening to a Turkish version of Os Mutantes, the Brazilian psych band from the late-60s/early 70s. Harmonically and melodically, it will remind you of lots of North African / Middle Eastern pop...lots of modal melodies layered over beats that are mostly lively and sometimes funky. Touches of fuzz guitar pop up regularly, lots of echo and atmosphere on the vocals, performances that feel very live rather than constructed piece by piece through overdubbing. The longest track is a concise 4:38, and most of the tracks are between 2:30-3:30 (they are singles, after all), so none of the grooves wears out its welcome. This would be a great party album, a great housecleaning album, a fun driving record...the compilers have done a good job with keeping the mood hopping, the flow from track to track varied enough, and selecting very catchy material. You'll almost smell the hash smoke wafting out of your speakers.

I bought this after hearing about it on NPR. Reflects the music of my childhood Turkey. I listen to it when I am driving, I am glad i bought it. I bought the second one too and listened to it on a road trip, with a friend who does not unerstand turkish but, she enjoyed the CD.
