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 !

Thanks for sticking with the blog, I was afraid you'd maybe give up. I've written several departments of RS complaining that they have not deleted links on a reasonable basis (i.e. with appropriate proof -- mind you I can understand that new albums might not want to be made available free -- but that is not usually the reason. It has been the action of a nutball, in almost all cases it seems.
If RS just stopped being a download provider that would be a reasonable thing to do -- shut down their business. But they collect lots of fees and then destroy blogs, and mistreat bloggers, so I am disapppointed in RS whatever their improvements.
I enjoy learning about some of the unusual material you draw our attention to.

Okay, I found it. I like this site better than rapidshare, even if it is hard to find the download button. Rapidshare only lets you download once a day so you can't get other stuff from other sites like these.

Hey, all polish tracks are radio recordings, made by "Zespol Rozrywkowy Rozglosni Opolskiej" directed by Edward Spyrka. There is plenty more of his works in Polish Radio archives - and all of these stuff wait for release on CD...
