OKAY TEMIZ - LIST OF ISSUED RECORDS
compiled by Johann Haidenbauer

This is a list of released records by and with Okay Temiz. It is ordered chronologically where the year refers, in general, to the recording date. All items are in LP format unless stated otherwise. CD re-issues are preceeded by an asterisk '*'. In those cases where the catalog numbers of LP and CD issue are essentially the same it is not repeated after the *.

Presumably Okay Temiz played as session musician on some records by Swedish rock and pop singers in the 1970s. If anyone can provide further informations here please contact me.

Note that compilations of otherwise available material and repackages are, in general, not included in this list.

I would like to thank, Jack Campin, Birger Gesthuisen, Francesco Martinelli, Ates Temeltas, and Greger Wikberg for their help and encouragement with this discography.
