Keep one hand on your bağlama, bub! B-sides from hard-to-find 45s that never made it onto albums during singer Edip Akbayram's 1970s psychedelic period with the awesome Dostlar as backing band. A tiny guy with a great big, easy, open voice, Akbayram glues together disparate arrangements that put ridiculous analog synthesizers up next to centuries-old mystic poetry. Anatolian melodies are enveloped by western touches like breakdowns for cosmic whispering, slammin' organ, or wild phasing effects on folk instruments that were never meant to support them. Remastered sound. Includes booklet with liner notes by Angela Sawyer (Weirdo Records) and photos.
