Supraphon Release Information



The complete censored 1980 album + bonuses + the singer’s memories of the strange times!

The ninth item in the ongoing Václav Neckář reedition series is intriguing in many respects. The most remarkable fact is undoubtedly the despotism of the Communist censors who prevented the release of the song Óda na Prahu (Ode to Prague) to lyrics by the then unacceptable Jiří Suchý, thus depriving the set of songs of one of the tracks that was planned to be included in the album. Václav Neckář worked on the disc with excellent lyricists, as well as superlative composers (Milan Tesař, Petr Hapka and Jiří Burian). Burian, a member of the band Saze, provided four delicate pieces forming a stark contrast to the dada undertones of the cult song “Václava mám nejradši” (I Like Václav Best), which appears here as a special bonus. The remarkable fate of this extraordinary album is described in the singer’s sleeve-notes.

Václav Neckář’s profession of affection for Prague and love of poetry has definitely overcome the abyss of a quarter of a century!


Kalemegdan Disk Additions



Vaclav Neckař’s music within 50 years varied between beat, pop, softrock and progressive rock. This album contains mainly good quiet and dreamy progressive rock and the booklet includes all the lyrics.
