Description

Mogollar - Mogollar CD. Incredible second album from Mogollar—so rare it does not even appear in the band’s own discography—yet it was released on Diskotür all the same sometime around 1971; eleven perfect examples of the group’s “Andalou pop” sound (a mixture of ethnic Turkish music and Western elements), plus eight bonus tracks from singles, including different, heavier versions of two tracks from their “Danses et Rhythmes” album; our friends Aquarius Records have said the following: “Anadolu Pop, yeah! It's no secret that the music of hippie-era Turkey holds a big attraction to our customers. We go out of our way to carry all the reissues that have come out in recent years documenting how back in the late '60s and early '70s Turkish youth took the Western beat and psychedelic sounds that were current at the time and melded them to traditional Turkish folk forms, with fuzz guitars and ethnic instrumentation like saz and iklig combined into an energetic, 'exotic' and exceedingly infectious hybrid pop music. And perhaps the best example of this Middle Eastern psych-rock is the band Mogollar (aka Les Mogol). We've already freaked out about the one CD of their stuff we've previously been able to stock, the “Danses et Rythmes de la Turquie” album from 1971. Now, the same label brings us another, their rare self-titled second album (also it seems from '71), and it's just as good! The first track you might recognize from the Asian installment of the Love, Peace, & Poetry series. And one of the bonus tracks is on Hava Narghile compilation, while two are amped-up versions of songs from Danses et Rhythmes. Languid grooves, frenzied fretting, such great atmosphere, just wonderful stuff. The cd booklet includes photos and an informative English-language essay detailing the history of the band, which is great to have (even if it doesn't tell us in what year this was released). Definitely add this to your Turkish psych-pop collection, or start one with this!!”

We have remained open during the Coronavirus pandemic and will continue to remain open! Extra thanks to everyone who has been supporting us during this time! Restocking has been more difficult that usual, but I'm trying as best I can to bring more and more great music to the shop! Super huge thanks to you all from my Rockadrome family and I!!

However, please note that everyone in the biz has been experiencing erratic delays in shipping across the board as the world's postal services try to keep operations running as smoothly as possible. So, if you order be prepared for a possibly longer than usual wait as your package could be one that's gets tied up in the system.

New Release!
