Grup Dogus (literally means "rising") was formed by two brothers, who were workers emigrated from Turkey to Germany.
While performing in nightclubs, they received a proposal to record for an album to be issued on cassette in 1975. This low-selling cassette album full of Anadolu Pop repertoire was almost forgotten till now. Selected tracks from the album have been remastered and released in vinyl format. The songs here are raw and non-produced type of Anatolian Pop, which gives us a soundscape that is not restricted with the limitations of mainstream labels. Therefore long lasting guitar and Hammond solos, a progressive attitude, flowing energy and groove leave a strong mark on all titles. Strange but true, Grup Dogus definitely found the way to perform those songs of Anatolian Pop heritage in a more mind-blowing way compared to originals of their composers or performers such as Baris Manço, Cem Karaca, Üç Hürel and Selda. The album contains eight songs from the only album of Grup Dogus and a 2-page insert in English and Turkish with lots of photos.
