Turkish Freakout 2 [coll] – [Bouzouki Joe]

“Turkish Freakout 2″, on Bouzouki Joe Records, is Bouzouki Joe’s second volume of Turkish psych and folk rock from 1970-1978.
This project is a labor of love. Joe hunts out the bins for these 45′s and LP’s from back when. He is passionate about his selections, which is obvious in the liner notes. (These are also informative and funny.) This collection, especially sides A & B, spends more time on female vocalist. These cuts are often more folk based, a bit quieter and very hypnotizing. Side C really takes off. You’ll wish Baris Manco’s “Mozart” was three times as long. And hold on for the amazing Perihan singing kind of dirty against the psych hard rock blow out. Side D has an amazing blast from Cem. This collection will make you wish you could go back to Turkey in the 70′s, tripping to the rhythms of the time.
