Pharaway Sounds presents a reissue of Erol Büyükburç's Hop Dedik, originally released in 1976. Years before Baris Manco and even before the fame of Erkin Koray, Erol's flamboyant outfits and spontaneous behavior brought a youthful, pop-oriented world to Turkish audiences. Hop Dedik is his first proper album. While not exactly psychedelic, it shows how far the mix of Anatolian melodies and Western production could reach and provides some great examples of Turkish pop spiced with psych, disco, and funk. Includes insert with photos and liner notes by Angela Sawyer.
