4 stars Taken their name from an iranian city (Yazd) and a Turkish city (Urfa, or sanliurfa) Yezda Urfa was destined to go down in history as an unknown band, fortunatly they were discovered well after not releasing this album. And due to Syn-Phonic records there 1976 privatly funded album "Sacred Baboon" saw the light 13 years after it's recording.

And what a marvelous album this is, enjoyable from the first note, and the enjoyement continuous till the last struck of a chord. Yezda Urfa are very clearly inspired and influenced by the symphonic styles of Gentle Giant and Yes, with very fast almost frantic changes of melodie and pace.

The song titles are rather random, and have nothing really to do with the music itself, but strange lyrics ask for strange song titles. (Tota in the moya actually is the way the niece of Brad Christoff pronounced Two (O'Clock) in the morning).

This is a fabulous recording, and I'm very happy it against all odds has been released.

Fans of Gentle Giant, Yes, Echolyn and assorted bands, must surelly try to get a hold of this album. Maybe not a masterpiece, but pretty awsome. Highly recommended.
