YEZDA URFA 'Boris' LP (Greece, Anazitisi Records, Catalogue #ARLP/S 70-33F) Brand new/unplayed copy of superior/deluxe LP reissue edition by Anazitisi Records of rare and lauded 1975 Indiana area private press psych and basement prog rock album by Yezda Urfa. Deluxe package includes a bonus 7" EP (featuring an extended track recorded in 1977) and several inserts.

'Legendary local rarity with an interesting mix of styles. Opens like a late 60s westcoast folkrock LP, then moves into Yes-style synth/prog sounds with tempo shifts, moog leads and frantic playing. Basement recording with a live feel and plenty of enthusiasm saves this from the usual prog-rock traps, and the tounge-in-cheek, showtune feel that runs through it is an advantage in this context. Excellent, high-pitched vocals is another plus. Side 1 is impressive throughout, while some of the unique dementia is missing on the too-proggish side 2. While no great fan of the style this is an LP that I'll probably return to in the future.' - Patrick Lundborg/Acid Archives
