Released in 1976 to huge critical acclaim and skepticism in equal parts, the album smashed new boundaries both lyrically and musically. But the fact that Selda was one of the few female voices to adopt the use of such cutting edge techniques put the LP in a league of its very own. Frowned on by the paranoid Turkish authorities she would face the threat of imprisonment due to her unwaning desire for freedom of speech and a demand for a quality of human life. Selda would face future jail sentences and travel restrictions as her popularity spread amongst Turkish communities in Europe and America. Luckily Turkuola arranged the immediate release of a second which was released in late 1976 (some songs recorded in the same sessions are presented on this release as bonus tracks).
