4 stars I'm not sure how many Prog fans would actually like this EP. SYNKOPY released this back in 1972 and there is a real sixties Pop flavour to the music throughout. Vocals are in their Czech language. I love this stuff.

"Festival" opens with strummed guitar as electric guitar leads jump in then vocals. This is a top three for me. Just so catchy and I like the depth of the music. "Par Tydnu" is another catchy 60's sounding vocal led tune. Harmonies help out and we get a raw guitar solo after 1 1/2 minutes. Another top three. This music just makes me feel sooo good. "Chci Devce Staly" opens with harmonica and a beat. Vocals and guitar follow. Good song. "Dablova Znama" is led by guitar and multi-vocals. Very BEATLES-like. I'm not a big fan of the way "Lady Godiva" starts but man when it kicks in i'm singing along with the chorus and vocal melodies. So uplifting and the final top three for me. "Bytost Podvina" is killer stuff with the abrasive guitar almost in the Neil Young style. Vocals and harmonies too. Good track. "Zarliva Divka" is another good 60's sounding Pop tune with vocals. This is really good.

You've been warned but man this comes across like a greatest hit album because all the songs are so good.
