Skrgatic, Marin

Dawn Of The Yugoslavian Prog-rock Era 1970-1976

'UNRELEASED RADIO RECORDINGS' - Another lost musical treasure unearthed by the Everland-YU imprint! Seven years have passed since this material landed in their hands and they counted the days since they could give it the justice it deserves. Fully licensed and remastered from original master tapes, this chronologically arranged LP is a collection of previously unreleased radio recordings all of which have one thing in common: the unmistakably original musical ideas and vocal performances of Marin Skrgatic (1950-2014). Marin was a Croatian prog-rock pioneer, who as a result of a series of unfortunate circumstances, did not receive much recognition in the dawn of the Yugoslavian prog-rock era. In their prime, his groups were an active and well-acknowledged underground phenomenon, filling stadiums and music halls all over Yugoslavia. This material represents some of the first attempts to record complex progressive rock arrangements in Yugoslavia - sourcing heavily from local folk music, jazz, and classical influences. Interestingly enough, most of the songs presented here were dismissed as being too progressive at that time - by the largest Yugoslavian record company Jugoton. This gatefold LP includes thus far unpublished photos and detailed liner notes about the evolution of Marin's groups resulting from interviews with former band members with whom they've uncovered some of the mysteries of Yugo-prog-rock's annals. Release editor, liner notes, research: Dr. Smedi Secer. Mastered by Viseslav Labos.
