Independent Turkish label: Yildiz Plak Records was responsible for at least a couple of 7" vinyl records, both of which featured Turkish music.  First out of the blocks was 'Varim Yogum' b/ w 'Mutlulugu Sende Buldum' by Katkin (YDZ-001) which came out in 1977.  The second, Konkurt Gurubu's 'Nazlanma Guzel Nazlanma' b/w 'Aleyli' (YDZ-002), is pictured.  Granted, it doesn't look English, but its matrix number, LYN-6528, shows that it was pressed by Lyntone in 1979, which suggests either that Konkurt Gurubu may have been Turkish expatriates living in Britain or that the record was pressed in Britain for export to Turkey.  I've given the label a page here in case the former is correct - the band certainly performed in London and released cassettes there, so it seems like a reasonable bet.  The Katkin record had a different label design - it was basically white with orange-coloured segments at the top and bottom.
