Supraphon Release Information



An expanded compilation of the greatest hits of the most legendary of Czech rock bands!

The new 2 CD pack comprises a total of 43 songs capturing the Supraphon era in the history of a group who is still going strong after several decades and changes of style and remains as popular as ever.

The two discs present all the essential pieces dating between 1965 and 1990, mapping the band’s dramatic shift from the slightly Beatles-tinged sound and the first major hits through pop, hardrock and art rock, all the while retaining Petr Janda’s peerless penmanship.

The songs are all true classics in the band’s Czech rock legacy, which has never lost its lustre: Želva (Turtle) and Otázky (Questions), Pták Rosomák (Wolverine) and Okno mé lásky (The Window of My Love), Dynamit and Jasná zpráva (Clear Message), the introductory Dej mi víc své lásky (Give Me more Love) and the final Stejskání (Pining), plus another 36 timeless classics…

Nuggets from the musical gold mine known as Olympic!


Kalemegdan Disk Additions



Olympic has been the band with the richest discography in Czechoslovakian Rock history. They have been the most successful band in Czechoslovakia, but of course that does not mean that they also have been the best one.

If you were interested to get to know them and didn’t want to invest in a bunch of their original albums or even the 14 CD “Komplet” box set, this compilation would be a good solution. It is in chronological order and shows the development of the band through two and a half decades. The first CD covers the period from 1967 to the early Seventies, while the second CDs mainly gives an overview about their work during the Eighties.
