The Berlin files, part 2: Middle Eastern And Other Delicates

The Berlin files, part 2: Middle Eastern And Other Delicates

Playing tracks by

Alemayehu Esheté, Ersen, Erol Evgin, Still Ersen, Marlena Shaw and more.

Chart positions

This show was 22nd in the global vinyl chart, 33rd in the global breaks chart and 65th in the global beats chart.

The 2nd - probably the best - part of the series (1st part here: http://www.mixcloud.com/tomanek/the-berlin-files-part-1-start-from-the-library ). OK, Ethiopia is actually not within the Middle East, but Alemayehu Esheté's songs pass somehow to the Turkish delights.
Highlights:
- Ersen's music. Dünden Bugüne is one of the best records I've ever bought. Probably his 1st LP - actually a compilaton of his many 7"s released before 1977, but man, what an amazing music! If you see that reissue under ~20 euros buy it immediately, without any hesitation.

- Move On Up. Had two sunny Saturdays in Berlin, when at the recordstore Franz & Joseph there was a big outlet sale. On both accessions LP Curtis was on the girls' record player. (Yes, there were girls, not that old a*hole.) Was nice to dig to that music.
For many years I have always a great time at Easter Monday, playing always a longer set in the radio. Now it was even more special. Loved it, after coming home for a longer break.
