Turkish Titan Time

One of my favourite record labels is Turkofon, a German based label dedicated to reissuing vintage Turkish psych, prog and pop albums, mostly from the 1970s. Their Bandcamp site is an absolute treasure trove, and as if the quality wasn't enough to recommend them most of the albums are available to download for £3-4.

One of the shiniest jewels in their heavily bejeweled crown is "Nedir Ne Degildir?", the 1976 album by Edip Akbayram & Dostlar. Blast your ears off to these two tracks, then when you have reattached them go off and buy the album. And then lots of other albums as well.

"Mehmet Emmi" - Edip Akbayram & Dostlar

"Ayrilik" - Edip Akbayram & Dostlar

From Edip to Edison. This is what appears alphabetically on my iTunes after "Mehmet Emmi". Apparently its now causing a sensation on TikTok. I don't know what that means.

  1. The albums I've just scanned all have a very good price, £3.50 or £4. Just going to listen to Disco Fasil 1.
