2 stars This rare collector album was introduced to me as a jazz rock album in the vein of RTF and billy Cobham. Obviously it is not the case : we're here between Lonnie Liston Smith pre 80's period, sometimes poor disco-funk sections, and The Doors light my fire and riders on the storm small jazz solos. All this melting is submitted to balkanic melodies (and bass lines!!) sometimes...

The four first track are pleasing : short, efficient, simple and really rock. The vintage sound is really interesting too. The disapointment comes with brez besed : a poor grooveless disco-jazz piece with small balkan harmonies, this track is too long and the musicians have nothing to say on it (except an interesting but short solo piano). The two last tracks are in the same kind. Svit is unsignificant : it sounds like a ridiculous tv series music. Sled Zonca begins more interestingly (camel influences) but there are too much repetition of the principal section.

As a conclusion, I would say that this album is too poor to be filed under jazz rock bacause there are only poor jazz harmonies in it. RTF fans and complex rock listeners (from Mahavishnu to Santana) should be warned that this album is really soft. Catchy 70's rock song lovers could appreciate the first four tracks. However there are really better stuff to listen to!
