4 stars This is on the legendary Syn-Phonic progrock label from Greg Walker, one of the leading progheads in the USA. I read that this CD version from a demo was on the brink of release, well , here it is featuring six compositions (most around 10 minutes). Remarkable is the Yes influence but Yezda Urfa sounds far from a Yes clone. Their compositions are very varied, ranging from acoustic piano, rhythm-guitar and vocals to pieces delivering church- organ or a sumptuous climate with Howe-like guitar runs. At other moments there is a banjo, a guitar in the vein of Rory Gallagher, interplay between acoustic guitar, electric piano, xylophone and harpsichord or ebullient keyboards featuring Moog flights and choir- Mellotron. THIS IS EXCELLENT, VARIED PROGROCK!
