By way of definition, Retsepti represent what should be considered the most relevant contemporary music group to have existed in the Republic Of Georgia during the 1980s. If one is to summarize the history of underground music in ex-socialist countries, they will find very few which rank alongside the maturity of composition and stylistic character which Lado Burdulis group accomplished during their short and troubled existence. Retsepti was formed in 1987 by vocalist/leader Lado Burduli. Growing up amidst a period which witnessed the Soviet Unions first official rock festival (Tbilisi 1980), the group distanced themselves from the vocal instrumental ensemble and youth music of the Soviet Estrada. "Our attitude of the band was no interviews and no relationships with anybody - starting from the other bands existing during that period, to the journalists, and generally whomever.no relationship with anybody at all!". Retsepti means recipe, or prescription.We chose the name because at that time, the Soviet society needed some treatment, and we were the "retsepti" for this treatment which would eventually cure them (the people of this society)." - Lado. Existing throughout the fall of the Soviet Union and a five year period of civil war within Georgia, Burdulis lyrics bare a consistently similar theme; the struggle to sustain compassion and love within an intolerant society.
Retsepti's music is extraordinary - original, well arranged dark punk and wave sung in Georgian with a raw voice which has melody under its surface. The Caucasian language group is delightfully unique sounding in its percussive and even abrasive tones. This documentation offers the listener a rare chance to experience the groups entire recorded repertoire; from the odd sized Russian " master tape discovered in an empty building two years after the civil war, to the sole remaining copies of songs on cassette tapes; all songs suffered substantial deterioration of sound, requiring meticulous audio restoration. Comes in deluxe mat-finished gatefold eco-pack cover with everything written in beautiful Georgian Cyrillic alphabet (inner cover and booklet is in English and phonetic Georgian). Contains a protective inner-sleeve for the disc, a 16 page booklet with lyrics / photographs / interview and history of underground music in the ex-Soviet Republic of Georgia. All packed in a protective plastic outer-sleeve. 10 songs, 40 minutes CD, recorded 1989-90. All songs have been professionally 24-bit re-mastered. 100% authorized.
