VA - Bosporus Bridges {Turkey} [70s] (Psych Rock/Jazz comp.)

A wide selection of Turkish funk & jazz from 1968-1978. An interesting compilation released at 2005 as LP. Exclusively compiled by Lasarus (Maiden/Aerien/Stellar Voyage) & Roskow (Sonar Kollektiv/Jazzanova) This selection presented here in tracks by Erol Pekcan, Ferdi Oezbegen, Okay Temiz, Durul Gence, Mustafa Oekzent ve Orkestrasi, Emin Findikoglu with Nathan Davis, Erkin Koray,Fikret Kizilok, Aksu Orkestrasi and Erkut Tackin. Somewhere it says: "Named after the famous Istanbul suspension bridge, this extremely rare collection of heavyweight funk, jazz, psych and fusion brings together the finest exponents from 1970s Turkey, strongly influenced by American funk and jazz of the era, but uniquely offset by Eastern flavours." Some of the artists in this comp. are real miseries like Durul Gence & Tehlikeli Madde (with Fikret Kizilok)

a turkish friend of mine told me roskow ripped the songs from him, he dont dig not one these song by himself, my friend is an old dj and digger and had a record shop in istanbul...so i believe him because roskow lives in berlin and its not possible to find these songs in original in berlin or elsewhere, except you live in istanbul by the source and have time to dig every crate in the town..!
