1 - SELDA - SELDA - (LP) 
FINDERS KEEPERS


The second release in the Turkish Anatolian Invasion series. Space age, Anatolian, electronic, progressive-protest, psych-folk-funk-rock from the Middle East. All of the above ingredients are presented immaculately with up-most authenticity and conviction to create a delectable hybrid which has never been replicated or equalled in the 3 decades since its recording. Released in 1976 to huge critical acclaim and scepticism in equal parts, the album smashed new boundaries both lyrically and musically. Sonically, the LP begs comparison to the second LP by post-folk, sibling three-piece Uc Hurel who used a balance of electronically treated saz and proto polyphonic synthesisers to similar effect (exemplified here on tracks such as 'Gitme' and 'Yaz Gazeteci Yaz').

TRACKLISTING: 01. Meydan Sizindir 02. Yaz Gazeteci Yaz 03. Mehmet Emmi 04. Nasirli Eller 05. Ince Ince 06. Gine Haber Gelmis 07. Yaylalar 08. Dam Ustune Cul Serer 09. Dost Uyan 10. Gitme 11. Niye Cattin Kaslarini 12. Kizil Dere 13. Utan Utan 14. Karaoglan

2 - SELDA - SELDA (1979) - (CD) 
PHARAWAY SOUNDS


Imagine if Julia Child had marched against Vietnam, stood on the steps of the Pentagon & placed a flower in a gun barrel. Selda Bagcan's later records have that same cross of easygoing motherly warmth & righteous anger.This 1979 album (technically her 4th, although 6 of these songs were also released on her 3rd), was recorded when Turkey was at its most politically polarized. Selda was sentenced to a total of over 500 years in prison right about the time it came out. A pile of acoustic guitars & baglamas all going off at once under a blanket of reverb, with lyrics about blood, wood, mountains, families, and desperate troubles, so it's a thick squirt for a folk album. Selda's voice can either be sultry or really surge with emotion, and when she does belt one, it's oddly high & completely unique. Her reward was the love of Turkey's people, but also 9 trials and 3 prison terms from the right wing military government of the 80s.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Galdi Galdi 02. Almanya Aci Vatan 03. Yigit Muhtaa Olmus Kuru Sogana 04. Sorsunlar Beni 05. Ona Dan 06. Hele Yar 07. Ayaginda Kundura 08. Ah Ne Olur Bizim Kayde 09. Hizir Pasa 10. Cenderme 11. Izin Ize Benzemiyor 12. Kiymayin Efendiler

4 - SELDA - VURULDUK EY HALKIM UNUTMA BIZI - (LP) 
PHARAWAY SOUNDS


There were female Turkish folk singers before Selda Bagcan, but none whose hot- blooded voice carried such righteously angry words & none who also accompanied themselves on guitar. She began her career singing at her brothers' Beethoven nightclub in Ankara while she went to school for physics during the day. Her 1st album had help from the cream of the crazy Istanbul pop scene, and cuts from the same sessions were also released on this 2nd one. While the direction is folky overall, there's fuzz, zooming synthesizers, and heavy flute to be found. When Selda performed the title track in 1977 in a coastal town not far from Istanbul, her protest lyrics, though taken from an old poem, got her heckled by audience members who screamed that she should go back to Moscow! Find out why this brawny mama couldn't be stopped by a military government that put her on trial 9 times, and could call herself the bitter voice of the Turkish people.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Vurulduk Ey Halkim Unutma Bizi 02. Utan Utan 03. Karaoglan 04. Aciyi Bal Eyledik 05. Askerin Tarkasa 06. Maden Dagi 07. Maden Isaileri 08. Gardasim Hasso 09. Bundan Sonra 10. Gazden Gezden Arpaciktan 11. Ecoya Dander Beni 12. Zamani Geldi
