4 stars Compilation albums are rarely interesting. They are usually die-hard-fans-only fancies and feature 1-2 good songs to listen to. Russians are known for being an exception from most rules, and – what a frantic situation! – they’ve confirmed this statement with another exception. This is KOSTAREV GROUP’s rare and unreleased stuff, and it is amazing.

First of all, don’t be afraid of losing your sacred bucks on a pile of who-knows-what. Both CDs released by the band, available for FREE DOWNLOADING VIA THEIR WEB-SITE, so go ahead, download and enjoy. Second, with 30 years spent in world of Music, Kostarev didn’t release a single studio album yet! So here you can find 13-min long poor quality jazzy jam from 1978 recorded live, some tracks, that were prepared for albums that never saw the light of day in mid-90s, some tracks from InProg perfomance from 2003 (the whole show was released as a live album) and other miscellaneous and assorted things (like astonishing Eddie Jobson’s cover that opens the album). As a whole it sounds almost like a concept instrumental album, varied and challenging.

Dunno who can get close to KOSTAREV BAND in a matter of performing and writing. Leave this problem to someone else. Better get yourself their stuff and enjoy it. Happy listening – feedbacks are more than welcome!
