CHADIMA, M. & The Ex Extempore Members: The City/Velkomesto

Of all the bands and musicians to emerge in Czechoslovakia back in the ‘70s Mikolas was one of the most radical and has certainly been the most productive, still releasing one fine album after another. This has a special resonance for me because, back in the ear... more »

ECLECTIC MAYBE BAND: The Blind Night Watchers’ Mysterious Landscape

There will be 2 categories must have and essential history. Offers will be available for either or both together. If you find this essential library idea useful, I will slowly work backwards and compile a list from the whole catalogue.
