5 stars Boris is the first release by american eclectic prog band Yezda Urfa, apparently it is only a demo, hard to believe... The songs are absolutely beautiful. They sound like other bands from the era in one way, but they are totally unique in another way. It's too bad they couldn't get a decent record deal and continue as a band as I believe they would have become one of the recognized classics of the genre, they sadly remain an underground gem, probably an understatement. One thing that I found interesting is that Yezda Urfa sound recognizably "american" in contrast to most other 70s progressive rock bands that were from England. They mix in american folk influences very well. I was also amazed by the instrumental capabilities of the band. All parts are excellently played. If you can find this rare album (there is a reissue with bonus tracks by now) I highly recommend checking it out.
