"What can be said about Cem Karaca and Mogollar that has not already been said before? Cem Karaca and Mogollar joined forces for a short period from 1973 until 1974, this collaboration was short lived with only 3 singles being released, making this live concert a real gem. We do know that their repertoire was more extensive than the recorded songs, that's what makes this concert so great, only one of the songs here ('Sikayetname') was released by this band (in 1977). One song, 'Dadaloglu,' had only been released by Cem Karaca Kardaslar a few years before, and the remaining 3 tracks are all new to the Cem Karaca repertoire of released music. But the real gem on this album and a fitting end to the concert. 'Paradox' is one of Cem Karaca's rare English language tracks, which was never released; the only version we have heard so far is from this concert. Sound has been taken from the original tapes and remastered, so sound quality is much better than the average live LP quality. Perfectly enjoyable. 500 copies limited release."
