Artist: AKBAYRAM & DOSTLAR, EDIP
Title: Nedir Ne Degildir?
Format: CD
Label: Pharaway Sounds
Country: Spain
Price: $18.00
"As Turkeys political factions turned more and more violent in the late 1970s, Buscemi-eyed Edip Akbayram was nearly beaten up by rioting audiences for daring to sing about rural points of view that were naturally critical of Istanbuls political leaders. This second album of Anatolian psychedelia, originally released in 1977, showed defiance even in its gatefold art, with a drawing of the band members seeming to grow straight out the ground, covered in plant tendrils. Akbayram poached members of Mogollar and Bariş Mancos Kurtalan Ekspres to get the best fuzz breaks and Hammond slams & put em straight in your ears. The band also tried out some mixes that pushed the vocals or a particular instrument way up front, and of course, long, low, reverberant welcomes from Edips echo-covered voice. Remastered sound, insert/booklet with photos and liner notes by Angela Sawyer of Weirdo Records." - Pharaway Sounds.

Title: Singles Overview 1974-1977
Format: CD
Label: Pharaway Sounds
Country: Spain
Price: $18.00
"Keep one hand on your bağlama, bub! B-sides from hard-to-find 45s that never made it onto albums during singer Edip Akbayrams 1970s psychedelic period with the awesome Dostlar as backing band. A tiny guy with a great big, easy, open voice, Akbayram glues together disparate arrangements that put ridiculous analog synthesizers up next to centuries-old mystic poetry. Anatolian melodies are enveloped by western touches like breakdowns for cosmic whispering, slammin organ, or wild phasing effects on folk instruments that were never meant to support them. Remastered sound. Includes booklet with liner notes by Angela Sawyer (Weirdo Records) and photos." - Pharaway Sounds.

Title: Nice Yillara Gulum
Format: CD
Label: Pharaway Sounds
Country: Spain
Price: $18.00
“The third album by Turkish psychedelic singer Edip Akbayram, originally released in 1982, really ramps up the silly synthesizers. Hear whooshy 80s Rolands, vocals run through a harmonizer, and tons of totally tubular bass popping -- its easy to hear the boundaries of the western intros and breaks. Ever wish Knight Riders KITT could drive to İstanbul? Take a ride on cheesy synthesizers with Edip at the wheel! Remastered sound. Includes insert.” - Pharaway Sounds.

Artist: BEYBONLAR
Title: Gelin Ayşem/Nenni
Format: 7"
Label: Pharaway Sounds
Country: Spain
Price: $17.00
"Turkish psych-funk-fuzz-breaks insanity featuring 12-year-old drummer Sefa Ulaştır, a prodigy who ended up working with Barış Manço and Cem Karaca. Beybonlar recorded "Gelin Ayşem" and "Nenni" in 1968; the original 1969 release, a 1972 picture-sleeve re-release, and the inclusion of "Nenni" on the 2001 Turkish Delights compilation all occurred without the bands knowledge. This is the first time this sought-after 45 has been released in cooperation with the band. Includes new sleeve design (the 1972 cover had nothing to do with the band) and a fold-out insert with detailed liner notes and rare photos from the bands archive. Remastered sound. Edition of 300." - Pharaway Sounds.

Artist: KARACA, CEM
Title: Nem Kaldi?
Format: CD
Label: Pharaway Sounds
Country: Spain
Price: $18.00
"Cem Karaca announces his intent to slay all enemies of Istanbuls leftist counterculture with stompin prog keyboards. Sophisticated and passionate, with flamboyant taste in sunglasses, Cem Karaca led Istanbuls music fans through a period of violent political turmoil. Karaca reworked traditional folk lyrics with molten electric bass lines that played up both a poets broiling righteousness and also his listeners common ground with their elders in Turkeys history. 1975s Nem Kaldi? gathers more 60s-70s singles that lead the listener through Karacas own musical history, skipping across various collaborations. Sink deeper into the intrigue both musical & otherwise as fractious personnel changes & real-life assassins multiply, yet the double-time drums & badass synthesizer schwings pound on." - Pharaway Sounds.

Artist: KORAY, ERKIN
Title: Arap Saci
Format: Double LP
Label: Pharaway Sounds
Country: Spain
Price: $35.00
"Master of the fuzz saz, Turkeys answer to Eric Clapton brings his burly axe attacks to the snaky folk melodies of Anatolia. Long-proven to cause just the brain-rot youre looking for, heres a Koray collection of tracks taken from singles and LPs for your acid-drenched pleasure. The guitar slinger who was once stabbed for wearing his hair too long around the streets of Istanbul interweaves melodies as old as the ruins of Ephesus with the riffs of Black Sabbath and his own souped-up bağlama. Find out why they call him Erkin Baba. Originally released in 1976. Includes a booklet containing extensive liner notes." - Pharaway Sounds.

Artist: OSIRIS
Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: Pharaway Sounds
Country: Spain
Price: $27.00
"First-ever vinyl reissue of this prog/psych masterpiece by cult Arabian band Osiris, their 1982 debut album. A killer blend of 70s-sounding hard, progressive/psychedelic sounds with long, ripping Minimoog and analog synth attacks smashed into mellow vibes and Arabian folky touches, with hard lead guitar, exotic percussion, floating rhythm section, and English vocals. Osiris formed in Bahrain, the small island country in the Persian Gulf, in the late 70s, but its story goes back to 1969, when talented brothers Mohamed and Nabil Alsadeqi formed a funk rock band called Witch. The band broke up when Mohamed left to pursue his studies in Texas, while his brother Nabil left for London. Upon returning to Bahrain in 1980, the two brothers decided to form the first progressive rock band from Bahrain. It was not easy to find like-minded musicians in their town, but they succeeded, with help from Mohammed Shafii (bass), Sami Al-Jamea (keyboards), Mohamed Amin Kooheji (guitar, bass, vocals), and Abdul Razzak Aryan (keyboards). Mohamed and Nabil began working out an original repertoire that would fuse musical complexity, melodic richness, and Arab culture. They took the name "Osiris" from Egyptian mythology, not only for its sound but also for its associations with Arab culture, youth, and fertility. But the definitive Osiris line-up came up when they added a charismatic singer named Isa Janahi. Osiris made their live debut at the end of 1981. Janahi wore flashy, colored clothes and capes and captivated the audience with his presence on stage. The group also used lasers, a light show, and smoke bombs, all deftly handled by friends of the band. Osiris was recorded at the only eight-track studio in Bahrain at the time. It was recorded and mixed in just three days. As there werent any record pressing plants in Bahrain, the band had to press the albums in the Philippines. They sold 1000 copies in Bahrain, but a few made their way to the USA and the UK, appearing in some rare records list by those in the know. Osiris will please not only those into classic prog-rock in the vein of Camel, Yes, or Pink Floyd, but also those for looking for exotic, psychedelic sounds and beats. Master tape sound. Includes insert with photos and liner notes." - Pharaway Sounds.
