4 stars Romania-based band YESTERDAYS was formed back in 2000, and revolves around the talents of composer and musician Bogati-Bokor Akos. They released their debut album "Holdfenykert" back in 2006, and two years later a rearranged and remastered English-language edition of the recording was released by the French label Musea Records. This third edition of the album is a remastered version of the original 2006 outing, and was released through the Finnish label Seacrest Oy in 2014. Most, if not all, of the band members are ethnic Hungarians, by the way.

My conclusion for this CD is pretty much the same as the one I wrote for the English edition of the album: This is a quality release, and YESTERDAYS should appeal strongly to followers of '70s progressive, and then especially among those fond of gentler and pastoral landscapes. A certain taste for jazz elements to appear here and there is probably warranted though, as well as occasional keyboard motifs of a striking and dramatic role. A strong album that sounds marginally better in this remastered version.
