Fikret Kizilok- Fikret Kizilok

70's Turkish Rock

a lesser know turkish artist
this was released not so long ago by World Psychedelica
who also brought us gems like the Kim Jung Mi,3 Hur-el and Erkin Koray
this time its a compilation,a somewhat a best of

You won't find this guy in the rock and roll history books, but man he's got a really great sound -- one that mixes Turkish folk with trippier touches from the early 70s -- often in a driving, rhythmic mode that comes across strongly despite any language barriers! Heavy percussion is often used underneath the guitar on the tracks -- creating a forward-moving, nicely grooving quality that echoes with "eastern" styled notes -- in a sound that's a bit other-worldly, especially when Fikret comes in with the lyrics! This CD brings together a variety of his best recordings from the early 70s, with notes in English that are a bit scattered, but kind of help put the odd music into context -- and the package features 15 titles that include "Yagmur Olsam", "Soyle Sazyim", "Gun Ola Devran Done", "Leylim Leylim", "Anadoluyum", "Yumma Gozun Kor Gibi", and "Haberin Var Mi".
