Excellent mid 70s work from one of the hippest dudes in Turkey – guitarist Erik Koray, a player who had a wonderful talent for mixing together a range of cross-cultural influences! The style here is a lot more sophisticated than that of Koray's first album – in a mode that shakes off some of the simpler beat group influences, and goes for a more expansive approach that blends Turkish musical modes with lots of rhythmic elements, psychedelic production, and some extra-nice guitar. Many tracks have vocals – all echoey and dark, sliding into the mix very nicely – and if we dare say it, a few of the best numbers even hit a tripped out style of funk! Titles include "Sevince", "Arap Saci", "Estarabim", "Eyvah", "Saskin", "Komsu Kizi", and "Gonul Salincagi". CD also features 5 bonus tracks from earlier years – including "Ask Oyunu", "Hop Hop Gelsin", "Senden Ayri", "Kiskanirim", and "Yalnizar Rihtimi (acoustic)". © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible. All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.
With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.
