Re: prog lps issued in original language and English

Smak's 1977 album Crna dama was released as "Black Lady" in 1978 in former West Germany, former DDR and UK; in the U.S. Crna Dama was released with different album cover art (that is bullshit; the original artwork is better by nautical  mile) and with a new title "Fanstasy"; released in the middle of New Wave histeria, the album got a negative review in Melody Maker, and one positive review in Guitar Player.


Beautiful Serbian cover, and its version for former West Germany and former DDR, & UK:

Bullshit version for the U.S.:

Their third album Stranice našeg vremena (1978) was released in former West Germany, UK and the U.S. with different album cover art (which maybe was suitable for Ohio Players and / or Oliver Mandić but NOT for Smak's music) and with a new title "Dab in the Middle". The album is excellent except, sadly, the title track which is really shit and the worst one that Smak ever recorded, so I will not to post that song in this great thread.

Re: prog lps issued in original language and English

Sligthly off-topic... As Bijelo Dugme were told from someone in London that the band should have to record something for British market, and they were recorded English version of the song Šta bi dao da si na mom njestu in a well-know London's  studio.  Ex-Alan Parson Project's vocalist Dave Townsend wrote the lyrics especially for this track, as aswell the band planned to release a 7-inch single for then British market of the singles; but, the band had to give up of that - I presumed that the release failed due to New Wave histeria those days - and it was two years later released just for promo 7-inch single which was printed in a very small number of copies only to be given as a gift to Yugo-rock journalists on a cocktail party organized for them by the band. Before the moment when it was released on YouTube in 2014 , not a lot of people were actually know this fantastic version which is better than original.

Re: prog lps issued in original language and English

It was "backwards" in this case. Belgrade's Korni Grupa, under the name "Kornelians", in 1974 recorded and released in Italy a full-length album on an Italian label, for Italian and European market, and a year after that the major Serbian record company PGP released it under licence in Yugoslavia, as PGP got that licence for free as well, due the fact that PGP already had the contract with the band. No Serbian version of lyrics, though.
Sadly, Italian label didn't invest any money for marketing and the album was therefore selling poorly. Though, the album is excellent, pretty complex, blisstering Symphonic rock of the era. The songs are perfectly composed (two songs are over 10-minutes long epics) and full of magnificent keys played by the leader of the band Kornelie Kovač, a classically educated composer and musician who was graduated at Sarajevo's Academy of Music, on Classical composition and piano; at Not An Ordinary Life the album his exciting synthesizers, Hammond organ and piano are often in interplay with majestical guitar work by Josip Boček - founder member of the band and one of three greatest guitarists of Yugoslav progressive music - other two are R.M. Točak (Smak) and Vlatko Stefanovski (Leb i Sol). I strongly suggest that this album should be heard in its entirety, so - voila!
