This is the second album by Turkish ethno psych-rockers 3 Hür-El, originally released in 1976 on the Diskötur label. Comprised of three brothers, Onur (bass), Haldun (drums, percussion) and Feridun Hürel (saz-guitar, vocals), they were one of the very few, if not the only, Turkish groups at the time not doing any covers, but only self-penned compositions. Hürel Arsivi is an absolute killer of an album and easily one of the top Turkish psych records ever released. It has a more Western feel, with brother Feridun here infected by a fuzz-virus and his own two-arm guitar (one for guitar, one for saz). Also there's much more heavy drums than percussion, in an astounding blend of psychedelic rock and traditional Turkish instrumentation, and of course, plenty of distorted fuzz guitar and electric saz. Includes an insert with detailed liner notes and photos.
