1 stars Forget the PR story spread by Omega, claiming that the communist state record company refused to release this album for political reasons. The reason why Pepita did not want to release an album with Omega at the time was that the company's executives thought the band would not survive the departure of their songwriter Gábor Presser a couple of months earlier. Thus Omega was not granted studio time. They recorded their next album nevertheless, themeselves, on two Uher tape recorders, in their rehearsal room. Upon presenting the material to the record company Pepitaás execs realized that bass player Tamás Mihály and guitarist György Molnár were capable of coming up with quality material. The bands performance was excellent as well. However Pepita's execs decided that the sound quality of the semi-professional recording was not satisfactory, Finally they went on releasing the album bar two songs. To compensate the poor sound quality they dubbed audience loops on the tracks. The result was the Élö Omega album. The song 2OO évvel az utolso haboru utan was left off the "live" album, as it had been released earlier as a single The song Sex Apo, which is about an old guy trying to screw chicks all the the time was left off too. Omega states that the latter track was omitted as one Pepita exec thought it was about him. So much about "political" motives behind not putting those two tracks on the final album. In 1998 Omega unearthed their original semi professional recordings and had addiitional keyboard anf guitar parts dubbed on them by their hired touring musicians.
