"One of the finest American progressive rock groups of the 70s"

"an exercise in mad genius and rare dexterity"

--Mike McLatchey


Past Present Future Past Present Future

format: LP
release date: 1990
label: Syn-Phonic

This is a compilation LP released by Syn-Phonic. It is a double LP, containing eight bands from the past, present, and future. Yezda Urfa is represented by a post-Sacred Baboon piece called "The Basis of Dubenglazy, while Dirk does the Dance". Dubenglazy was a basement recording that turned out fairly well, and represented the peak of our "crazy" period. Later works were more jazzy and with simpler structures.

This was a most execellent production by Greg Walker and Syn-Phonic. Included are photos of the bands with lengthy descriptions, lyrics, band members and their instruments, and discographies.
