3 stars This is a compilation CD by the Chech Republic formation Flamengo, it contains material between 1972 (LP Kure V Hodinkach) and '68-'71 (bonustracks). I was pleasantly surprised by both the level of the musicians as the recording quality. If you like brass, you will be delighted by Flamengo their music. It has obvious hints from Colosseum and some Alquin and King Crimson, mainly because of the omnipresent brass instruments (saxophones and clarinet). But the organ work and the dynamic rhythm-section are also great assets from this band. The vocals are in the native language, this gives a charming extra dimension to the music. A bit of a maverick is the track Me And The Smoke delivering a dreamy atmosphere with Spanish guitar and flute. The bonustracks contain the covers Summertime (Gershwin) and Get Off Of My Life Woman (Otis Redding, Peter Gabriel his hero). A dynamic album with lots of musical variety.
