Another good record fallen into oblivion. No CD reissues that I know of. Actually I have not found any other records by this singer published outside Turkey and the ones in Turkey seems to be long out of print as well. A biography of Asik Nesimi Çimen and all the lyrics are included in the bilingual (french and english) liner notes. All music is by Asik Nesimi, the A-side has lyrics by traditional poets and the B-side is his own poetry. A mild burning fire emanates from his gentle playing and glowing lyrics.
