A very good folk album with some nice folkrock tracks, for progressive music lovers especially is "Utan,Utan" (in a more prog folk way with some fuzz) & "Karaoglan". "Askerin Türküsü" is also interesting for its "mediaeval" arrangements. "Maden Dagi" is also very beautifully, very emotionally sung. A protest album forbidden at those days, so hard to find. It is however the same as the vol 3 CD (or "Türkülerimiz 3"), with again other order in tracks. Her singing is beautiful. (The photoraph you see here was also included on Türkülerimiz 3).

Turkish progressive music presents :
Selda Bacan is highly apreciated for her emotional voice. Her first compilation of singles between 1971-1974 is more a Folk album, but she sings with such an emotional voice it will gripe you by the throat. Some tracks are a bit more progressive. "Yalan Dünya" and "Kalenin Dibinde Tas ben olaydim" is recorded with Mogollar, and "Anayasso". "Nem Kaldi" are recorded with Kardaslar.
Her LP published as vol 2 is psychedelic Turkish folkrock. It is one of my favourites too (some tracks stand out). I hope somebody will remaster this with professional equipment once. Reissues in Turkey on CD are more often from poor quality. That might have to do with the many pirate reissues. Her third reissue is more Turkish but beautiful though. I didn't hear much of the rest yet.
"Selda is one of the rare female proggressive singers of Turkey, a powerful voice. Plays acoustics guitar and sings with her unusual voice. Later signed more in Protest Folk.
About the single with Mogollar : "Yalan Dünya"/ "Kalenin Dibinde Tas ben olaydim":
Early sample of Selda, with the band Mogollar. You'll not listen to a proggressive female voice and her guitar only, also you'll be able to hear beautiful sound of Mogollar.
"Yalan Dunya" a well rhytm, a poetrical compose also classical guitar sound of Selda. At the last period of the song you'll hear a short but beautiful solo of Mogollar, by percussion, bass and organ.
"Kalenin Dibinde" is a pure arrangement of traditional Turkish music, Turkish SAZ with west instruments, a forever rhytm of percussion and bass at the background."S.Fiye
Tracks played in my radio program -(underlined ones have audio files)- :
There also exist a CD Anadolu Konserleri I-II which says "Müziktekki Yirmi Yilim!" 1970-1990. Hearing mostly a slightly calmed down voice of Selda I think most recordings might be from later date, perhaps even all from one concert in 1989. First few songs all in one take are just Selda on acoustic guitar. The public clapping comes in, over the first half of the CD, at strange moments, I think the public might have been mixed in afterwards. This is followed by songs mostly accompanied on saz. A few other tracks are accompanied by guitar or saz, handpercussion, quiet rythmbox (to replace the drums), synths and a full orchestra. This is followed by solo songs on saz mostly (a few with quiet rhythm box, some with 2 saz, and one with second male voice ; the last track is the only one with also with electric bass and some percussion). An enjoyable album but don't expect real "psych" moments.
