Supraphon release information

Much more than a mere re-edition catalogue comeback! Václav Neckár has had dozens of great hit singles, and a number of his discs rank among the very finest pop albums there are. And this album is a prime example. In 1975, during the era of the deepest – not only in the sphere of music – “Normalisation”, his debut studio LP with Bacily was released, which provoked the authorities with the band’s original line-up as well as the guitarist Ota Petrina’s famed mane. And Petrina wrote the bulk of the pieces and arranged the entire album. Zdenek Rytír provided the lyrics for most of the songs, with some of the music also being supplied by the band-master Jan Neckár, Jirí Burian and Petr Hapka.

The compositions from this album have had a famous independent life (Jedenkrát, Díte snu, Život), yet they firmly hold together as a whole. This was probably the main reason why it received the Bílá vrána critics’ award for a remarkable artistic accomplishment, despite the fact that various approval committees had difficulties with some of the lyrics, the occasionally overly hefty guitar sound, as well as Pavel Jansanský’s sleeve. You can read all about this in the booklet, which contains Neckár’s recollections of the circumstances under which the songs came to life, the atmosphere of the recording sessions, the people around the album, and the whole weird era.

Following agreement with Václav Neckár, the editor Karel Knechtl added to the 2001 CD re-edition another six tracks that splendidly complete the whole set. They were in part composed directly for the original album yet did not fit in (Žonglér), and they all rank among the very best that was allowed at the time in our country. Kdo vchází to tvých snu, má lásko, Kosmické deti, Cesta za snem or Križovatky were adornments of Bacily’s concerts and they have retained their freshness up to the present day.

Václav Neckár’s legendary 1975 album with wonderful bonus tracks and a comprehensive booklet!
