After a long time I am back  on the site.

DEŽO URSINY

You can click on the artist page to see his bio and work, but in brief.

1947
 He was born as Dezider Ursiny in Bratislava (Dežo is an abbreviation and name he used)
1963
He founds the band Beatmen playing lead guitar and singing. The band released several singles with   their own material which is influenced by Beatles and the Stones in 1965.
1966
After leaving Beatmen, he founds Soulmen , a Cream influenced trio, which won The First Czechoslovak beat festival. Ursiny is now not only the lead guitarist and main singer, but also the main songwriter.
1968
Soulmen EP released (4 songs)
The band splits,  Ursiny founds New Soulmen, his first prog rock group. Only two recordings of them exist
1969
The prog bandProvisorium founded by Ursiny. It would exist with various line up changes untill 1971.
A  live recording from 1971 would be later released on CD.
1973
Ursiny releases his first LP Provisorium , with  his long time co-worker Jaroslav Filip and former members of the Czech band Flamengo. The tracks included were played live by Ursiny from 1970.
1977
After having problems with communist establishment,  Ursiny works with Slovak poet Ivan Štrpka who would write lyrics to all his future LPs andd CDs. From now on, his lyrics would be in Slovak, as opposed to his  earlier English only works.
1995
Dežo Ursiny dies of  cancer. He has released 13 studio albums and there are two posthumous lcompilation of non album work and one live concert.

He has a strong, hypnotic voice. His guitarplaying is superb. Very bluesy, and lazy, he never played too technically, but rather atmospherically, with sense for dynamics. The tracks are usually slow or mid tempo, his post 1973 work is hard to compare to anybody.

Of his albums the essentials are

Provisorium
Pevnina detstva
Nové mapy ticha
Modrý vrch
Zelená
Príbeh

Since as an East European artist, his albums probably  do not have the best distribution,
you can find them for example here:

If you like it, write your reviews and also try to buy the originals.
