16th April 2015: Covers Week – Day 4: Mavi Işıklar – Aşk Çiçeği

Language – Turkish

Cover – Send Me A Postcard

Mavi Işıklar, the name of the band, translates as Blue Lights.  Aşk Çiçeği translates as Love Flowers.  This is a kick-ass version of the classic by Shocking Blue by a Turkish band who were hugely popular in the 60s.  Apparently their records are incredibly hard to get hold of, but thankfully you can get this track on a compilation called Turkish Delights, which is on Grey Past Records (which is where I first heard it). Hurrah! Track details here: http://www.discogs.com/Various-Turkish-Delights/release/1778640
