Pharaway Sounds (Spain), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
One of the coolest Turkish singers we've heard so far from the 70s – an artist who's maybe a bit more funky and a bit less fuzzy than some of her contemporaries – blessed with a heavenly vocal style that's often set to these very groovy arrangements!
