pt1 pt2


"'To Scratch Your Heart: Early Recordings From Istanbul' collects 32 intensely beautiful recordings made by the Gramophone Company and HMV in Istanbul during the the first three decades of the twentieth century, while the Ottoman Empire was in it's final throes of collapse. From instrumental improvisations to passionate paeans, this album crosses bridges between Gypsies, Muslims, Christians and Jews, city folk and country dwellers to present a fascinating artefact that's half historical document, half treasure trove of spirits unleashed from crackly 78s. The entire album was expertly restored at Abbey Road studios to sound remarkably clear, allowing the full impact of these songs to affect wholly. A vintage aural luxury." (boomkat)
