“The LP you hold in your hands reflect the most powerful days of Baris Manço in means of music. If we segregate Manço’s musical journey as psychedelic and funky years, we can say that this double LP features the whole story. The psychedelic era includes Binboganin Kizi (can also be considered as a good prog rock number), Seher Vakti, Kol Dügmeleri, Run Away, Fairground, Iste Hendek Iste Deve and also some tracks from 1981 revealing the post-psychedelic era named Gülpembe and Dönence which are influenced by Pink Floyd, Alan Parsons Project as well as some of the space age elements of the analog synthesizer age. The funky side of the LP includes Hal Hal, Nazar Eyle, Egri Bügrü (significant Rhodes sounds), Ali Yazar Veli Bozar, Sari Çizmeli Mehmet Aga, the powerful funk track Vur Ha Vur, Alla Beni Pulla Beni (super bass riffs), big band groove Nick The Chopper and also we should not exclude the jazzy track ‘Aynali Kemer’. These tracks had many influences on latter Turkish funk and rock groups; but especially on hip hop and rap sets and groups rooting from Turkish individuals from Germany. In this double feature, Manço’s experiences on Turkish modal music can also be heard in Daglar Daglar I (with guitar and kemenche (stringed bowed Turkish instrument played held upright with their tail on the knee of the musician)) and Ölüm Allahin Emri (which is a hard rock number where the main instrument is zurna (multinational outdoor wind instrument)). The unique side of this pressing is its Türküola masters which was the main courtesy owner of Manço’s works in Europe. Only the masters? Definitely not! Also the cover photos are from the original resources of Türküola GmbH (the greatest record company in Turkish Oligopoly in Europe in 1970s and 1980s). I salute CY Music for this unique compilation reflecting both faces of Manço while representing the tradition of Türküola and the past good days we lived with Türküola.” ~Münir Tireli (Munimonde).
