Erkin Koray

Arap saçi

Release Notes
  • Double LP and double CD sets
  • Insert / booklet including extensive liner notes

Master of the fuzz saz, Turkey’s answer to Eric Clapton brings burly axe attacks to the snakey folk melodies of Anatolia. Long proven to cause just the brain-rot you’re looking for, here’s a Koray collection of tracks taken from singles and LPs for your acid-drenched pleasure. The guitar slinger who was once stabbed for wearing his hair too long around the streets of Istanbul interweaves melodies as old as the ruins of Ephesus with the riffs of Black Sabbath & his own souped-up ba?lama. Find out why they call him Erkin Baba.
