Fikret Kizilok - "Gün Ola Devran Döne" {Turkey} [1996] (1968-70 Early Works) (@320)

"Collection of singles by Turkish protest singer much-beloved by young musicians in the underground scene in Turkey, but virtually unknown anywhere else; Fikret started his career playing electric guitar for Cahit Oben Dörtlüsü, which led to appearances in the Golden Microphone song contests that also spotlighted the talents of Erkin Koray, Mogollar and the brothers Hür El; Kizilok frequently collaborated with Bülent Ortaçgil (whose own Benimle Oynar Misin album is a lovely artefact of the Turkish scene), and no surprise -- it was Fikret's involvement with prominent folk poets as a result of their shared interest in traditional Anatolian folk music which was the foundation of his storied solo career; the fifteen tracks included here (all from 1970-1974) sport some heavy grooves ('Leylim, Leylim,' 'Gözlerinden Bellidir,' 'Gün Ola Devran Döne,' and the fuzz-guitar heavy 'Koyverdin Gittin Beni'), but also tantalizes with moody, introspective musings in an Eastern vein ('Akyin Vari, Akyin,' 'Haberin Var Mi' and the sitar-laced 'Köroglu Daglary.' Booklet has notes about the Altin Microphon contests, lyrics, and photos." http://www.forcedexposure.com/artists/kizilok.fikret.html
