Czechoslovak Comebacks in Prague again

40th Anniversary tour remembering Kuře v hodinkách, the only album of legendary Czech group   FLAMENGO (reissued earlier this year) is coming to its conclusion. Flamengo singer Vladimír Mišík with his current band Etc... plus Flamengo mates Pavel Fořt (guitar) and Vladimír Guma Kulhánek (bass guitar) will perform number of 40 years old songs at two concerts in Palác Akropolis, on November 12th and 13th.

Other much remembered album of 1972, Zelená pošta (aka Green Post), is studio-based cooperation of Slovak singer /songwriter PAVOL HAMMEL with his former bandmate, composer, keyboard player and a true musical genius MARiAN VARGA. Album was never performed live in its entirety until this year's autumn, when a special concert was held together by organisers of Konvergencie Festival in Bratislava (in the end, there were three more concerts due to enormous interest). Promoters of United Islands festival in Prague made their part in bringing Zelená pošta to Czech stage, in Archa Theatre, Prague on November 21. Together with Hammel, Varga and his band COLLEGiUM MUSiCUM, there will be also Czech guitar maestro RADiM HLADíK (of Blue Effect), who played 2 solos on original album. Collaborations of Hammel-Varga-Hladík triumvirate continued further on occasionally, so along entire Zelená pošta, songs from newer critically acclaimed albums like Na II.programe sna (1976) or Labutie piesne (1993) will be performed hopefully. As November concert is nearly sold out in advance, organisers announced one more Prague date for Zelená pošta on stage ---  MARCH 13th.2o13.
