Korni Grupa / Kornelyans biography
Having left INDEXI from Sarajevo, the keyboard player Kornelije KOVAC moved to Belgrade where he formed KORNI GRUPA in 1968. He was led by ambition to compose "progressive" music, but the Yugoslavian public of the time still demanded lighter music, so the band started recording radio-friendly pop hit-singles. After several personnel changes, the first important line-up consisted of Kornelije Kovac (keyboards), Bojan Hreljac (bass), Vladimir Furduj (drums), Josip Bocek (guitar) and Dado Topic (vocals). At this time they managed to record several lengthy progressive compositions while maintaining their high-profile as popular hit-makers. The hit-single of 1970 "Trla Baba Lan" was a huge success, even internationally when French singer's Dalida released its cover version. Topic left the band in 1971 when he founded another prog band in Zagreb - TIME. For a short time his replacement was a young singer from Sarajevo, Zdravko Colic, who soon dropped to pursue a successful solo career, becoming the biggest pop-star in Yugoslavia during the 1970s. The new vocalist soon became Zlatko Pejakovic and he led the final line-up of KORNI GRUPA which was to record three LP albums of prog rock prior to their break-up in 1974. The same year saw them appearing at the Eurosong Contest in Brighton, performing their hit "My Generation", while the winner was "Waterloo" by a Swedish quartet called ABBA. The style of KORNI GRUPA can be described as a cross between symphonic progressive rock and jazz fusion, not counting their pop singles discography. Of the Yugoslavian bands of the era, similar music style can be heard listening to INDEXI or TIME.

The first album "Korni Grupa" was released in 1972 and appeared to be the 4th (fourth) LP record of rock music issued in Yugoslavia ever! It was quite a revolutionary step keeping in mind the ambitious musicianship showcased on this album. The music was close to jazz-fusion with virtuosity playing by Kovac, Bocek and Pejakovic. This is one of the most important records of the entire Yugoslavian rock catalogue! The second album "Not An Ordinary Life" was recorded in Italy in 1974 and targeted the international market. The band was renamed THE CORNELIANS and the lyrics were sung in English, but it sold poorly. More important was the lesser creativity than on the debut. Here the sound was...

Review by Seyo
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

3 stars A 3-disc box set of KORNI GRUPA under the title "Ne tako običan zivot - i posle trideset godina" ("Not an Ordinary Life - Even After Thirty Years") appeared in 2005. Although long awaited, the final product did seem to disappoint both the critics and the fans alike.

The content is divided between the first disc called "Progressive" and two other discs of "Hit Singles". If you know the opus of this group, you are already familiar with their "Jackyll-Hyde" approach towards the audience: on one side issuing hit singles with catchy pop and sometimes even downright bubble-gum tunes and on the other making long, elaborate musical pieces in the style of progressive and jazz rock that was presented on their two LP records and concerts. The intent of this box set is obvious: to present a whole spectrum of diverse musical styles and releases issued by the group in the course of their 6-year long career (1968-74).

And here we have a problem of selection of the best and most representative songs. The least objections I have about two discs of "hit singles" although it must be said that not all of them are poppy singalongs; there are many excellent and even progressive rock songs issued in the 7" format too. The track-list follows generally a chronological order starting from their debut single "Cigu ligu" of 1969 up to the English version of their Brighton Eurosong tune "Generation 1942" of 1974, thus presenting their five vocalists: Dusan Prelević, Dalibor Brun, Dado Topić, Zdravko Čolić and Zlatko Pejaković. Apart from the previously unissued title "Kosovka devojka" ("Kosovo Girl") all of these should be familiar to the owners of their previous compilations or the vinyl originals. Still, it is nice to have all these songs packed here together.

Bigger problem have I with the first disc, ambitiously titled "Progressive". Debut LP "Korni grupa" is represented with only one title, albeit perhaps the strongest one, "Put za istok" ("The Way to the East"); three tracks are taken from the second, so-called "Italian album" (because it was recorded in English language in Milan for the ltalian label Ricordi) "Not an Ordinary Life" - the title track, "Fall Off the Land of Women" and "The Man with a White Flag"; while two lengthier non-LP tracks, both with Dado Topić as vocalist - 17-minute "Prvo svetlo u kući br. 4" ("The First Light in the House No. 4") and a live rendition of phenomenal "Jedna zena" ("One Woman"). But, all of these were already available in the compilation CD "Prvo svetlo neobičnog zivota" from 1995, so we see no surprises here. For instance, a long lost song from Topić era called "Zena je luka a čovek brod" ("A Woman Is a Harbor, a Man Is a Boat") remains in the unreleased obscurity to this day. Also, the neglected is the entire "1941" musical poem featuring vocals by Josipa Lisac and Dado Topić, only the short "Oj sokole" ("The Falcon") is included in the hit singles list.

The booklet is also rather poor. Apart from several nice old photos of the band and thumbnails of the entire official vinyl discography covers, not enough details were included. No biography, no special events, no studio details, no recording dates... only a somewhat pathetic liner notes by the band leader Kornelije Kovač.

But maybe I am personally too demanding - this box set may be very useful for younger generations who do not recall the vinyl era but are eager to listen and discover old "classic" rock music with an attitude! I mean not to prevent them in any way.

PERSONAL RATING: 2/5

P.A. RATING: 3/5

Review by 1967/ 1976

3 stars Interesting compilation by Korni Grupa. Only first CD contains Progressive songs. Other 2 CD contains singles. This is also the musical story of Korni Grupa, a band with two souls: For LP the songs was long and complex. For singles the songs was POP but not distant to Prog. "Jedna Zena" is presented in two version: one (in CD one) is Prog version and it is over 12 mins long (but in Youtube is great a live version long over 20 mins) and in CD 3 it is presented the single version. The songs in English do not convince me too much, due to the diversity of the production that is not so kneaded as in the other songs.

This compilation sure to please all those who love the Rock of Yugoslavia. For others it will be just another compilation of a great band.

Kornelyans: Not an Ordinary Life
Korni Grupa / Kornelyans Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by Suedevanshoe

4 stars Korni Grupa morphed into Kornelyans somehow and made an excellent record of dynamic progressive rock. Overall, the music is characterized by piano/synth/guitar interplay with theatric, almost RPI vocals.

Looking at the cover, the song "Gereration 42" is highlighted, maybe this was a regional hit. It does begin slowly, the english lyrics nostalgic and syrupy. Great acoustics and synths about 2 and a half minutes in - ELP esqe. It's a full on prog fest from there, with haunting, fast paced guitar fed melodies leading the way. More vocals 4 and a half minutes in, still nostalgic, reflecting on childhood memories and dreams. The acoustic guitar and bright washes of synth close this fine tune.

This is solid prog. If you are starting with the genre, listen to Close to the Edge and Selling England by the Pound and ELP and In the Court of the Crimson King first. I've you need more and crave the old and obscure, seek out Not an Ordinary Life. While not a blockbuster, the record is consistently interesting, enthralling, and accessible.

4+

2 stars Very popular band from ex-Yugoslavia.They were formed in Belgrade in 1968 by former Indexi keyboardist Kornelije Kovac.The band had a rather stable branch of guitars,bass and drums with Bojan Hreljac, Josip Bocek and Vladimir Furduj respectively,but suffered from numerous changes on the vocal post.Initially they played in a Pop-Rock style with female singers,by the 70's they transformed into a Hard Prog band with Jazz influences and male vocals (even Time's singer Dado Topic was a member in 1971).After they recorded the musical poem ''1941'',Korni Grupa headed for their first full-length self-titled work with Zlatko Pejakovic on vocals and eventually released it on the big Serbian label PGP RTB.

A rather dated work by today's standards,''Korni Grupa'' opens with ''Glas sa obale boje'',a mediocre Hard/Blues track with little to offer and vocal lines being the most interesting moments.The 14-min. four-part epic ''Put na istok'' is also rather inconsistent,standard Blues/Hard Rock on the lyrical parts,but Kovac delivers some nice organ soloing after the middle with a decent jazzy rhythm section,while the strong end is also pretty good.Another long track,the 10-min. ''Moj bol'' will open in a pure Jazz manner with Kovac'es piano on the front all the way,but again very cliche work on guitar solos,certainly an overstretched piece of music.''Bezglave ja-ha horde'' holds the rhythm section's best performance with some good vocals throughout and fantastic electric piano by Kovac,definitely the most adventurous cut of the album.The short closer ''Tata Ko i mama Spo'' sees the band in a commercial Blues Rock style,again the fine vocals end up to be the most interesting part in here along with the electric piano performance of Kovac,while the guitars are deeped already in a very pale and forgettable style.

The album might have been a great release in ex-Yugoslavia,but it will not blow your mind by any means.It is a rather cliche Hard/Jazz/Prog album with some fine passages but also plenty of average parts,which reminds at moments Swedish bands of the time like KEBNEKAISE,RAG I RYGGEN or TRETTIOARIGA KRIGET.Far from a trully interesting release,hardly recommended,but of some interest for fans of the style...2.5 stars.

3 stars This is a compilation album that was released in 1996. KORNI GRUPA only put out three studio albums (in the seventies) but they released a lot of singles.This compilation combines both sides of the band as we get three singles (one of them done live) and four of their more Progressive tracks. Of the four proggy tunes only one of them isn't on the first or second album, so even to hear this one song will make this worth seeking out if your a KORNI GRUPA fan. It's also the longest song on here as well at around 17 minutes.

"Put Na Astok" is from their debut album and is probably the one I like the most. I won't get into details considering i've just reviewed this track. "Divija Jagode" was a B-Side single and is an uptempo track with vocals and some excellent guitar. "Prvo Svelto U Kuci Broja 4" is the one track worth hearing for Prog fans who already have their first two studio albums.This is an unreleased track that has some great moments. It is kind of bluesy though and I don't like the vocals before 2 minutes but the guitar shines.

"Etida" is the one song I dislike. An A-side single but it's too ballad-like for my tastes. "Jedna Zena" is actually the B-Side song to the previous single but this is live so they've stretched it out to around 12 1/2 minutes. The final two songs are from their second studio album called "Not An Ordinary Life". "Generation" is average but I do like the final self titled track. It sounds like a cross between Zappa and WIGWAM.

Sure this would be a good place to check out how this band sounds but I still think the debut studio album is their best and the place i'd recommend you begin.

3 stars This was KORNI GRUPA's second album and they recorded it in Italy with English vocals trying to break the international market. Unfortunately it didn't do very well at all.

"Rising" opens with some annoying sounding synths but then the song picks up and turns fuller. A calm with piano ends this short intro track. "Not An Ordinary Life" is much better.The vocals remind me of a Zappa recording, in fact i'm reminded of both Zappa and WIGWAM at times on this my favourite tune. The drumming is great early on. It settles with drums and almost spoken words before 2 minutes then kicks back in with guitar leading. I like the drums / synths section after 4 minutes. Guitar leads 5 1/2 minutes in. Vocals are back 9 minutes in. Excellent track.

"Generation" opens with intricate guitar which is replaced by reserved vocals a minute in. It picks up before 3 minutes with strummed guitar and synths standing out. The organ joins in. It settles then picks up as contrasts continue. "Fall Of The Land Of Woman" has a good low end rhythm with vocals.The organ joins in. Synths lead 3 minutes in and the guitar is aggressive a minute later. Nice. "Temporary Parting" features piano melodies until around 1 1/2 minutes when drums, synths and bass become prominant. Piano ends it though. "Man With A White Flag" opens with drums and floating organ as the vocals come and go.This is a pretty good uptempo tune. Not a fan of the synths though after 5 minutes. Love the section 7 minutes in that is very WIGWAM-like. Great section. Some nice drum work before 9 1/2 minutes.

A good album but not as good as the debut which I rated a low 4 stars. So 3.5 stars it is.

4 stars KORNI GRUPA were a very popular group in Yugoslavia in the seventies.They had the ability to churn out the pop hits but at the same time create Progressive albums like this their debut.The band was formed by the former keyboard player for INDEXI.

"Glas Sa Obale Boje" opens with this melancholic guitar followed by vocals as the sad mood continues. It picks up and gets fuller after a minute. Nice. It settles again 2 1/2 minutes in as contrasts continue. Great tune. "Put Na Istok" is around 14 minutes in length and divided into four parts.This is more lively and catchy than the opening track. Vocals around a minute. Some nice guitar after 2 1/2 minutes then we get a calm. Guitar, keys and a beat take over. This is really good. Vocals before 5 1/2 minutes then the tempo picks up. Another calm before 10 minutes as reserved vocals join in. It kicks back in before 11 1/2 minutes with more aggressive vocals.

"Moj Bol" opens with piano and percussion. Bass joins in as it builds.Vocals after 2 1/2 minutes. It then settles back as the tempo continues to shift. The guitar starts to solo around 6 1/2 minutes. Vocals are back late. "Bezglave Ja-Ha Horde" is led by drums, piano and vocals early then guitar comes in. A guitar solo after 2 minutes and some expressive vocals follow as they jam. I like this. Another guitar solo 5 1/2 minutes in as the tempo slows some. Vocals follow. "Tata Ko I Mama Spo" opens with drums, guitar and bass before the vocals join in.The guitar is playing over top after 2 minutes.The piano comes to the fore when the vocals stop, but then the guitar and vocals return to end it.

On their studio albums the band certainly were challenging themselves and their fans, especially the latter.

Review by Joćo Paulo

5 stars A band of Yougoslavia and one of more importants and that made some of the most beautiful Progressive in this country. This album is recording in Italian from label Vynil Magic for Europe market and because of this, lyrics are in English. It's a psichedelic space rock with a strong synphonic influencies. We can listen some Yes influencies but Emerson Lake and Palmer to. It's a great album with a very good sound and very good player's. Have some Italian influencies of keiboards sounds of this time and used by Italian Progressive bands. When we listen some guitar works that made a questions answer's with keiboards, we can imagine some of few Italian important bands that were also influenced by Yes sound. The classic influecies create the Italian context. It's a great album and much better that some Yes albuns of this time. To me, it's a masterpiece of Yougoslavia Progressive and because of then I give 5 stars

5 stars I listeen KORNELYANS "Not an Ordinary Life" for the first time about two or three years ago, and confess, I need more of a single audition, not to enjoy the music of this Yugoslavian band, but to recognize the magnificence of their music. In this Kornelyans albun you can find a mix of countless progressive styles, from the space to jazz and touching the border of symphonic and hard prog, make with a rare perfection. The first track give to us a wrong impressiom of a main influence of Greenslade or another keyboard oriented progressive band, however in the next track the sound changes entirely with a initial swing and a strongly presence of the a conductress guitar and suddenly appears one brief moment conduct by conga drums and some vocals wich returns to the initial theme and develop in a merge of space prog and jazz rock passage full of improvisations and nervous scales and symphonic momments then returns the initial theme to a superb form. The track 2 shows beautiful acoustic guitar passages and very psychedelic themes. The track four is a fantastic jazz prog, and is one of the best momments in the disk. The track 5 is also great and in a certain passage reminds me Gentle Giant and El&Palmer in various aspects. The track 6 close the disk in the same way of the first track and reminds me again keyboard oriented progressive. The musicians are excellent. In addition I like mention the cover wich is very funny. My rate is 5 stars, without a trace of doubt !!!

Review by Prog_Veteran

5 stars Kornelyans are really 'not ordinary' in the best meaning of SYMPHONIC AND adventurous prog rock sense (*see last paragraph). WOW what an incredible PROG quite original and tasteful. I had the chance to listen the earlier Korni Grupa, I guess it's another music proposal, an important record ( they were pioneers ) with very good music; some song, prog, rock, bluesy and jazzier elements. In this seminal record the predominant keyboards are piano and Fender Rhodes, while in Kornelyans 'not an ordinary life' synth, moog, piano and mellotron are the masters (the entire prog keyboards arsenal is used). Kornelyans is totally prog, very different of Korni Grupa that is not symphonic.

In Kornelyans 'not an ordinary.' the super skilled performance reminds me Italians of CHERRY FIVE plus Latin complex flavor by PFM and MAXOPHONE - vocals are great as the last. The rockier creativity and freshness remind me Gentle Giant (around 'in a glass house' or 'free hand'). The uplifting humor and mood brings to mind also GRACIOUS. But these are only references as Kornelyas sounds its own. It's a record for international market ala Banco 1975 and PFM 'photos of ghosts' sung in English, a rich 1974 era record.

Do you remember the pioneer (for being open to everyone) prog reviews site PROGNET? I guess it got closed around year 2002. I used to put many reviews there (I had free time, no son and my health was ok) and made many friends. One of these friends taped me Kornelyans. I remember I could not believe my ears: All ingredients for an outstanding masterpiece were there!! Thanking my friend I wrote 'when you think you already know most important records a friend amazes you with a pearl'.in fact there are so many unknown prog records from iron curtain, Asia, etc. out there, that a rule for a good fan is to know that we are always learning.

(*)Not that I think Kornelyans requires many repeated listenings to be full appreciated or understood, if you are familiarized with the bands I mentioned above, it can be love at first listening. I also wrote in PROGNET ' I heard it more than 10 times, as I wanted to be very sure to assume to say that Kornelyans 'not an ordinary life' is one of the best 70“s albums of prog rock !' Well now in 2009 writing to PA I guess, after listening it more than 50 times, I can keep that enthusiastic true heart opinion, I'm not exagerating!
