4 stars Fantastic jazz/rock outfit coming from Skopje and formed in 1976 by guitar hero Vlatko Stefanovski and bassist Bodan Arsovski.After a couple of succesful singles,some intense live performances and a winning prize at the Youth Festival in Subotica,LEB I SOL recorded their debut at the studio of RTV Novi Sad in September 77'.

The album is a mixed work of trully amazing guitar-led compositions and some mellow vocal tracks.Stefanovki is in great form,presenting an unbelievably mature and unique style of playing characterized by his twisted breaks and inspired solos.Too often I recognize an evident ethnic feeling,especially during his solos.The guitar/keyboard interplays between Stefanovski and keyboardist Koki Dimusevski are very nice,following mainly a fast tempo.Dimusevski fills the sound with a succesful series of alternating keyboard work,including electric piano,synths and delicate mellotron.Comparisons?...hard to make...Maybe a Yugoslavian edition and mix of WEATHER REPORT,GENTLE GIANT and BRAND X would be a good description...At the end,I find this debut to be surprisingly captivating,challenging,mature and progressive.This can't be translated to anything else than my strongest recommendation!!
