4 stars Self-titled compilation of TESKA INDUSTRIJA was released on CD by Swiss record label Krin Music in 1995. It contains a selection of tracks from all three studio albums from the classic period 1976-78. It also happens to be the selection of the best and the most progressive rock-oriented material of the band.

"Ho-ruk" album (1976), arguably the best the band ever recorded, is completely included, only with the track listing order slightly changed. Albums "Teska industrija" (1976) - 3 tracks and "Zasviraj i za pojas zadjeni" (1978) - 5 tracks are represented with their better moments, only it would give more prog touch had the former been represented with more tracks than the latter. Also, inclusion of the single-only song "Sta je rekla Ana" spoils the overall collection because it is clearly out of place with its pop-rock chart-topping structure.

The selection of tracks for this compilation seems to have been done hastily and at random, like it is the case with many such releases which try to capitalize the long absence of the old classic rock bands from the 1970s. On the other hand, the lack of re- issues of original albums in CD format makes this compilation a valuable and quite informative edition to the first-time listeners. I can recommend the purchase of this disc to the lovers of "progressive hard rock" in the vein of DEEP PURPLE or URIAH HEEP, especially those who want a single disc collection of the most prog moments of TESKA INDUSTRIJA.


P.A. RATING: 4/5
