CZECHOSLOVAK RADIO JAZZ ORCHESTRA AND THE BLUE EFFECT GROUP (aka MODRY EFEKT)-NEW SYNTHESIS 2 (NOVA SYNTEZA 2), LP, 1974, CZECHOSLOVAKIA-NWW LIST





Largely fabulous and completely over the top orchestrated fusion/hard rock hybrid from this Nurse With Wound-listed crew, though some of the uncouth strained vocalizing might cause some sphincter clenching for our more sensitive patrons. Argentina's all-star La Bibblia project from the mid 70's (featuring just about everyone from the Argentine underground of the era) is about as close as I can come to finding a touchstone for the species of swelling histrionic orchestrated prog bombast found within these grooves. An album custom made for those of you out there for whom the term over the top is a siren song rather than a warning.

Todd-closest I could get would be to say that if you're digging the "One Must First Put On Shoes..." track that starts what was side B, then try The Yugoslavian band Smak's album Crna Dama Here
