This is the 1972 debut album by Turkish ethno psych-rockers, 3 Hur-El. Comprised of three brothers, Onur (bass), Haldun (drums, percussion) and Feridun Hurel (saz-guitar, vocals), they were one of the very few, if not the only, Turkish groups at the time not doing any covers, but only self-penned compositions. Having played together for their whole life (other projects included Trio Istanbul, Biraderler, Alizeler, and Oguzlar, and all three brothers were members of the Selcuk Alagoz Orchestra), it was in the late '60s when they formed 3 Hur-El, releasing two wonderful albums. Feridun created the double-neck saz-guitar -- a combination of electric saz and electric guitar in the same body -- and Haldun's drum set was an assemblage of darbukas (a Turkish percussive instrument which is also used in North Africa & the Arabian Peninsula) in different sizes, which were made by the copper masters of the Beyazit Bazaar in Istanbul. Their self-titled debut is comprised of a brilliant set of Turkish ethno-influenced folk-rock with a psychedelic/progressive feel, some great electric guitar and fantastic Eastern percussion. This very rare album is now available again, with remastered sound from the original mastertapes. Includes an insert with detailed liner notes and photos.
