Yuh Yuh

The latest in a line of reissues of Turkish folk and protest singer Selda, many will be familiar with Finders Keepers 'Selda' release from 2006 that was so popular they repressed again a few years later. This was originally a German cassette release now getting a vinyl issue after nearly 40 years. Tracks are taken from Selda's debut album and singles from the mid to late '70s. Title song 'Yuh Yuh' is from Selda's 1977 'Dostum Dostum'/'Yuh Yuh' single, in the '80s Selda Bagcan was persecuted by Turkey's military rulers due to her political lyrics. Anatolian Rock super group Dadaslar who are known for their works with Ersen provide the backing for many of the tracks. The band beef up Selda's sound and provide a powerful groove with their psychedelic arrangements giving the tracks a funk-rock vibe that will appeal to fans of Jagwar Ma or Tame Impala looking for something more cosmic.
