First readily available reissue/compilation of material by this famous Turkish psych musician from the early '70s. Edip Akbayram is the top of the BIG three of Turkish delights (Erkin Koray, Baris Mancho & Edip). This release includes the best psych tracks from his first two albums and many singles -- 22 tracks, 90 minutes of music. His band Dostlar formed the songs into something which takes you on an Eastern trip, full of fuzz guitar, electric sax and great percussions. Edip's dark voice makes you shiver and you feel like dancing right away. This is as good as Erkin Koray -- deeply spiritual and charged with politically powerful lyrics. This release stands as one of the Shadoks reissue classics.
