Supraphon release information

One of the rock re-edition events of the year!

Two anniversaries contributed to the first transfer of this album to CD. The author of all the lyrics, Pavel Vrba, turned 70 in April, precisely at the time when some 30 years had passed since the release of a disc with a remarkable content and fate alike.

Bohemia was actually a veritable Czech super group. Jan Kubík (ex-Flamengo), Lešek Semelka (ex-Blue Effect), Michal Pavlícek (ex-Expanze), Vladimír Guma Kulhánek (ex-Flamengo), Jan Hála and Pavel Trnavský (ex-Expanze) were all songwriters, singers and instrumentalists who helped save Czech “big beat” from the Communist philistines. And they succeeded splendidly, with their rock-jazz fusion music, bolstered by almost surrealistic lyrics, having survived the three decades in an extremely vital condition. The LP today serves as a great testimony to an era.

In addition to the original album, the CD contains three bonus singles complete with B-sides: Semelka’s lyrical Co mi brání / Vina krídel, Pavlícek’s guitar-driven King Gong / U studánky, and Kubík’s flute-saxophone Kam jdou / Bulgaria expres.

70 years of Pavel Vrba + 30 years of Bohemia = 100 per cent music!
