3 stars Dezo was an influencial musician back in the early days of Czech Rock music. This is his first solo album released in 1973 and he has the FLAMENGO rhythm section playing on it which is a big plus. Vocals are in English surprisingly and are okay. For me they aren't good or bad although I know if this was an all instrumental album i'd like it better.

"Christmas Time" is the side long opening track. It's fairly laid back early on with chunky bass. Vocals a minute in. It picks up before 2 1/2 minutes but it's brief as the tempo continues to shift throughout. Vocals to the fore around 9 minutes in but again they're brief. Organ after 10 1/2 minutes then it settles back. It picks back up with guitar then the vocals take over and they are hit and miss for me.

"Looking For The Place To Spend Next Summer" opens with the sound of cars whizzing by as acoustic guitar and piano take over. Vocals then lead as the organ joins in, then it settles again. "Apple Tree In Winter" opens with piano and vocals. This sounds like MUSE doing a ballad. "I Have Found" is another vocal track. Drums lead after 4 minutes when the vocals stop but they are back late.

This didn't do a lot for me but it is proggy and an important part of the Czech music scene.
