***“Its no wonder that psychedelic crate-diggers, and self-proclaimed vinyl vultures Andy Votel and Dominic Thomas of Finders Keepers both have tracks by SELDA included on their list of favorites: her take on Anatolian music is unique. This reissue features the second album (released in 1975) by this much beloved female Turkish protest singer, notorious for her clashes with Turkish governments; Selda and her acoustic guitar are accompanied here by a psychedelic rock band which includes members of MOGOLLAR, and the result is is one of the best records we’ve heard from Turkey, for it includes “Utan, Utan” (traditional folk sounds spiced with fuzz guitar) and “Karaoglan,” a track like “Askerin Türküsü” is interesting for its medieval arrangements, and “Maden Dagi‚” is sung with great emotion. This is an album which was forbidden in Turkey, which means it has been hard to find since its release; includes eight early singles as bonus tracks, on which hearing Selda sing is as exhilarating an experience as the first time hearing “les mysteres de voix bulgares” or the manic warble of Liz Fraser. Notes in “English” give some background on Selda and the Anatolian rock sound; nice booklet also includes lyrics.”
