3 Hur-El-Hurel Arsivi

1976? Turkish Psychedelic Rock

a excellent album of turkish psychedelic rock
highly recommended for anyone interested in the turkish psych/prog scene

some information from

Unlike every other band in Turkey, the three Hürel brothers (Feridun,Onur and Haldun) never played cover songs on stage or on record. Feridun who wrote the songs and sang, played a double-necked instrument : one neck for guitar, the other for saz." G.A. & J.D.

"One of the most interesting groups of Turkish progressive music, a legendary sound. 3 brothers, Onur, Haldun, Feridun Hurel: 3 Hur-El. Their first band was at 1966 "Istanbul 4".. Then 1970 3 Hur-El with their special sound. First LP 1972.

As an important differance, the three Hurel brothers didn't play cover songs or turkish music compositions. Feridun did the original composes and lyrics, and sang, also played a double-necked instrument : one neck for guitar, the other for turkish saz. Was a great combination. With special drums, percussions and combination of west-east instruments, they created a new synthesis. That was a great progressive sound of 70's, with great rhythms.

Their second LP "Hurel Arsivi" , 1976, is their most important work (selections from singles)

of the group, amazing rhytms, incredible guitar playing, some psych sounds and vocals...

A must listen."

go get it!
