What a beautiful cover! The paintings with musical instruments and nature scenery are a hallmark of the Eastern European covers, right? We've seen them before. But I love this one, so typical of the seventies, with its darkly surrealistic background similar to an Yves Tanguy.
To make up for yesterday's pulled-down post of Matrix (which I urge everyone to buy to hear) I'll post this one, which probably hasn't been released to CD yet, though I might be wrong since I scarcely have time to check on all these things. Derived from the famous hoard of Berlin I alluded to earlier, this one compared to Matrix is interesting in that it is squarely in the European fusion style or perhaps Russian fusion style, versus the Matrix which was US-style fusion. On the other hand, it suffers slightly from featuring over-long improvisations in my opinion.
After today I'll say goodbye until after my holidays for a bit.
