Turkish Delight (tape, Ding Dong Records & Tapes DDC 009, 1983)

And another compilation, on the excellent Ding Dong Records & Tapes, one of the best dutch cassette label. "This is the first issue of a new serial theme cassettes by Ding Dong. We invited several muscians from all over the world to give their vision on the subject Turkish Delight and made a selection of the contributions. We want to thank all the contributors who made it possible to realize this delightful project." Quite a nice line up too, with some well-known names and some unknowns. I have a live recording of SM Nurse somewhere, which isn't as good as their track here, but I wish I knew more about them. The cover I attach is the one that came with my copy. Discogs shows another, but it's one I never saw.

I had forgotten that I once owned this tape. There are some wonderful minimal synth tracks on it, all exclusive afaik. So thank you very much!!

Btw, Bogazici means Bosporus, cicekler = flowers, bal = honey. Maybe this tape even started my interest in the Turkish culture.

Turkish Delight is destijds uitgegeven in 2 verschillende hoezen. Hot Day In Istanbul op deze cassette is S.M. Nurse op z'n best. Het radio optreden in de VPRO Villa was inderdaad niet het beste optreden. Door het ontbreken van een sound sheck liet de techniek ons in de steek. Voor meer S.M. Nurse: www.

i'd liked your comment, in all it stupidity, so much, i let it pass. if you, by any chance, learn to read one day, why not look at the re-up policy in the side bar? oh no, that's a great idea.
