  • Label / Pressing: Pharaway Sounds / PHS007 / 2021 Green LP
  • Release year: 1974
  • Country: Spain

Technically his second LP after a collection of singles, this benchmark record from 1974 taught Istanbul's musicians and pop fans how to put Turkish folk songs from the 17th century together with meaty, thundering guitar solos. With a crack bass player by his side (Ahmet Güvenç from Bunalim and Baris Manco's Kurtalan Ekspres) and an electrified bağlama in his hands, Erkin Koray lets his gloomy baritone voice float over wiry double-reed melodies, bulging riffs, and hammer-ons that go on for-friggin'-ever.
