Yezda Urfa: Boris (1975) (2004 Reissue + Bonus Track) [FLAC] + Sacred Baboon (1989) (1992 Reissue) [APE]



PORTUGUÊS: Formado em meados de 1973 em Chicago, o Yezda Urfa era uma banda extremamente competente e talentosa que tocava um rock progressivo de qualidade musical finíssima. O som deles era influenciado principalmente pelo Gentle Giant e Yes, bandas que na época viviam suas melhores fases. Em 1975 eles concluíram o Boris, o primeiro álbum da banda e uma produção independente que teve 300 cópias prensadas. o Yezda Urfa mandou o material gravado pra mais de 300 gravadoras, porém infelizmente todas elas se recusaram a assinar um contrato com a banda. Os integrantes da banda, ao viajar para Nova York, até tentaram mostrar suas músicas pessoalmente pra diversas gravadoras, mas pouquíssimas se dispuseram a conhecer a banda. Como o álbum também foi enviado a algumas estações de rádio de Chicago, mas mesmo que a maioria tenha ignorado completamente a banda, algumas da cena underground local se dispuseram a colocar o álbum completo no ar.

No início de 1976, a banda começou a gravação de seu segundo álbum, o Sacred Baboon, que apresentava material inédito e também modificado e aperfeiçoado do Boris. A banda também tinha finalmente achado uma gravadora que se dispôs a prensar os álbuns, a Dhama Records, porém, quando o Sacred Baboon foi finalizado, a gravadora, que se encontrava em problemas financeiros, queria que a banda bancasse os custos de produção dos discos. No fim das contas, mais uma tentativa que foi por água abaixo e o Sacred Baboon só seria lançado pela primeira vez em 1989 pela Syn-Phonic, a mesma que também relançou o Boris.

Apesar das dificuldades, a banda continuou a compor novas músicas e a fazer shows, que geralmente eram escassos, mas sem intenções de obter sucesso comercial. Como os integrantes da banda começaram a tomar rumos na vida e assumir outros compromissos geralmente fora da música, a banda se desfez em 1981, mas deixou um grande legado para o rock que felizmente foi redescoberto e pode ser apreciado por mais pessoas.


ENGLISH: Formed way back in 1973 in Chicago, Yezda Urfa was an extremely competent and highly-gifted band which played progressive rock of the finest musicianship. Their sound was mainly influenced by Gentle Giant and Yes, bands which were living their highlight days in those times. In 1975 they finally concluded Boris, their debut and demo album, an entirely independent production which had 300 pressed copies. Yezda Urfa sent their recorded music for over 300 record labels, however sadly all of them refused to sign the band. The band members, while travelling to New York, stopped by many record labels to present their music personally, but a few accepted to let them it and meet the band. As the demo album was also sent to some Chicago radio stations, even if most of them completely ignored the band, some from the local underground scene accept to air the whole album.

On early 1976, the band began recording their second album, Sacred Baboon, which featured inedit and modified and improved compositions from Boris. They had also finally found Dhama Records, a record label which offered them a chance to press their albums, but when their second album was concluded, Dhama wanted the band to pay for the manufacturing costs as it was into some serious financial problems. Another try which was completely vain and Sacred Baboon would only be released in 1989 by Syn-Phonic, the same that also reissued Boris.

In despite of the difficulties, the band kept composing new songs and playing concerts - generally handful - but without any intensions of achieving commercial sucess. As the band members began to pursue other interests, mostly out of music, they disbanded in 1981, but otherwise they left a great legacy for rock music that was fortunatly rediscovered and now can be appreciated by more people.
