Various Artists "Contemporary Group vol.1" Coloursound Library, 1982

This is a German Library LP from the Coloursound label, it is filled with Polish composers with the exception of one of them, Branislav Zivkovic who seems to be of Yugoslavian origin.
It was one of the first Library LP i ever found and all in all, it is surprisingly good if we consider that it was released during the early eighties. The Jonny Trunk "Library book" give the date of 1979 when speaking about the creation of this label.
On side one, "Calmy", "Fatum" & "Piano underlay" are cool atmospheric tracks while "Tensile" is more funky. On side two the most impressive tracks are the ones by Branislav Zivkovic, i would love to hear more from him and any information about this composer would be welcome.

I have updated the date of this recording due to some information i found on the net. It's quite incredible to think of this LP as being so late (1982 is really late, in the Library Music field at last). The quality of some of the tracks make me wonder if this was not stock music from the seventies finally released in the eighties.

I'm currently working on putting back the links wich were deleted from rapidshare, soon everything will be back to normal...well, i hope so anyway.

See you soon !
