Supraphon release information

The complete censored 1980 album + bonuses + the singer’s memories of the strange times!

The ninth item in the ongoing Václav Neckár re-edition series is intriguing in many respects. The most remarkable fact is undoubtedly the despotism of the Communist censors who prevented the release of the song Óda na Prahu (Ode to Prague) to lyrics by the then unacceptable Jirí Suchý, thus depriving the set of songs of one of the tracks that was planned to be included on the album. Václav Neckár worked on the disc with excellent lyricists, as well as superlative composers (Milan Tesar, Petr Hapka and Jirí Burian). Burian, a member of the band Saze, provided four delicate pieces forming a stark contrast to the dada undertones of the cult song “Václava mám nejradši” (I Like Václav Best), which appears here as a special bonus. The remarkable fate of this extraordinary album is described in the singer’s sleeve-notes.

Václav Neckár’s profession of affection for Prague and love of poetry has definitely overcome the abyss of a quarter of a century!
