's long career
as a major rock star in his native Turkey has seen him cover all sorts of musical territory. His songs are often a curious (some might say bizarre) hodgepodge of musical influences, and one thing's for sure: you couldn't call the man unadventurous! Here's a sampling of some of his psych-Turk-rock from decades past: Krallar - Gel Bak Ne Söylicem - Cemalim - Allahaşkına - Aşka Inanmıyorum - Yanlizlar rihtimi - Gönül Salıncağı - Anma Arkadaş - Aşk Oyunu - Gün Doğmuyor -
There are two MySpace Music pages for Erkin Koray.
At this one
you can hear snippets
(not whole tunes, unfortunately) but I recommend listening to them simply to get a further idea of the breadth of his output. Some great
Turkish psychedelia to whet your appetite here. And at this one
there are three tunes you can hear in their entirety.
