Notes

"Víèzslav Nezval could hardly have imagined the future incarnations of his 1945 book Valerie and Her Week of Wonders. Inspired by its folklore guise and transgressive symbolism, fellow Czech Jaromil Jires condensed Nezval's novella into a staggeringly beautiful celluloid fantasy which mirrored the aesthetic and radical consciosness of the 60s counter-culture which birthed it. Thirty-eight years after it's initial release ten Philadelphian musicians, bound by a love of the film and its original score, worked to compose an alternate soundtrack. The result is a celebration of the impact Valerie and Her Week of Wonders has had on the Folk/Rock Movement and a tribute to the culture that today sustains it." - Greg weeks
