Since the late 60's to mid-70's Skaldowie were one of the most popular and best (pop)rock groups from Poland - along with Czerwone Gitary and Breakout. They played a combination of vintage rock, Polish folk, some jazz, pop and classical music - with prominent and splendid Hammond organ parts & really nice melodies.
In 1972 the band recorded a progressive and truly superb LP "Krywań, Krywań" - without a doubt their best (although relatively unknown) effort, slightly similar to Procol Harum & The Nice, but also to the early Premiata Forneria Marconi and some other Italian groups of this period!
This 80 minutes-long CD constains all the recordings made outside of Poland between 1970 and 1973 (but sung in their native language) and published in Czechoslovakia, East Germany and the Soviet Union.
For the first time on CD - in audiophile quality!
