26 Turkish Beat, Psych & Garage Delights: rarities from beyond the Sea of Mamara (also called Turkish Delights) is a compilation of Turkish rock groups from the 1960s and 70s. The album highlights the early and classic 1966-77 rock periods in Turkey, including giants such as Mavi Işiklar, Erkin Koray, and Moğollar. Informed by the music coming out of Britain and the United States, the fourteen bands in this collection run the gamut from early beat sounds of garage bands to mid-seventies psychedelic explorations, simultaneously infusing the music with a distinctively Turkish sound.
