Music I Liked And Didn't - 3/14/07
KARACA, CEM AND KARDASLAR: Puskullu Moruk 10” EP (Destur) - This is a release of rare recordings by Turkish legends Cem Karaca and Kardaslar that were originally created for a short-lived “Ottoman Pop Musical” in the early 1970’s. It contains six tracks of groovy Anatolian Rock ranging from the exploito pop of the opening instrumental “Overture” to the fuzzy psych of “The Fox”, and the excellent eastern folk-influenced “Dear Mr. Judge”. Poor source quality is a bit of a bummer, but this is still a very cool and much appreciated little addition to my relatively sparce (but, fortunately growing) number of vintage Turkish delights.
