      Couldn't avoid the cheesy title, sorry!

      Just looking at the title and album cover, you know you are in for a treat. The alunm cover depicts a baldy looking semi-naked Turkish bloke with a Narghile (waterpipe) and 5 glamorous looking girls, above the picture is "Hava Narghile" in a psychedelic green font.

      The Turks have always quite liked their rock music and have put out some pretty good stuff, various compilations are finally doing it justice. This album compiles Turkish psychedelic garage rock music from 1966 to 75, some of the later tunes are more along the lines of progressive rock but you get the idea.

      Some tracks are completely instrumental and extremely funky like "Gilgamis" by Apaslar, so don't worry about your lack of Turkish understanding, my Turkish is limited to a handful of phrases and I get along just fine with the album. Lorke Lorke is an enjoyable tune as rock band Siluetler give it an injection of psychedelia (it's a traditional tune - primarily Kurdish I think)

      There's also a handful of tracks sung in English such as "Hard Work" by Mogollar, these moustached young men seem to have a Scouse accent (surely inspired by Jerry & The Pacemakers and The Beatles) and rock out a crazy tune that mixes psychedelic oriental music created with traditional instruments and beat music, there's also a sort of Irish folk thing going on in there too, it's completely bizarre and makes me rather inclined to pop over to Istanbul and buy up all their records!

      If you want to open a psychedelic kebab shop - this album is an essential!
