Erkin Koray- 45rpm Singles 1967-1976

Just discovered this nice little goldmine on an extremely random messageboard in the nether regions of the interweb. After a wee bit of research, I found that it was posted once in early '08 at the Hippy-dj kit. Their link is dead, and this is a must, so enjoy!

From the write-up at Hippy-dj kit:

Erkin Koray (born June 24, 1941), has been in the Turkish rock music scene since the late 1950s. He is widely acclaimed as being the first person to ever play rock and roll in Turkey in 1957, he and his band gained notoriety by playing covers of Elvis Presley and Fats Domino. He was also one of the first Turkish musicians to embrace the electric guitar and modern amplification.
By the late 1960s, he was already a major figure in Turkish psychedelic music and Anatolian Rock, beginning with his first psychedelic single Anma Arkadaş in 1967. Koray followed this with a number of singles, both by himself and in collaboration with others, that established him as a force to be reckoned with on the Turkish rock scene.

Koray became a controversial figure in Turkey during the 1960s and 1970s he was actually assaulted in Istanbul, and on one occasion stabbed, for having long hair.

untel said... still remains to be a great resource for info but most links do not work because dear Cemil Yuce, who put that site together, was looking into moving it to another location, but he passed away and is no longer with us.

Also looking for a new link for this, or any of Koray's records. I recently discovered his music, and was in Turkey, I found an original copy of Koray's "2" at a store--it was scratched to hell, and they still wanted about $250 for it!
