ZLATNI DEČACI - Najbolje godine (1966-1967)



ZLATNI DEČACI were formed in 1962, in Beograd, Serbia (ex-Yugoslavia). Their first name was The Tigers but advised by Nikola Karaklajić (famous Yugoslav international chess player and journalist) they change it into Zlatni dečaci. In the beginning they played on parties. Beat music was taboo in early 60s for many radio programs. So, they made beat covers of four classical music parts just to be played on radio. Their friend and big fan Nikola Karaklajić brought those recordings to Holland. Record company "Fontana" puti it out as 7"EP of Golden Boys. Next year the same record comes out in Yugoslavia. Very soon they become popular and their next single is sold out in 100000 copies. In 1966 they are going as young chess players to England with their big fan Nikola (as chess players they didn't have many problems to get visa's for U.K.) and there they played a few gigs mixing famous beat and Yugoslav folk covers. After that they recorded one of the best selling 60s records in Yugoslavia together with famous singer Miki Jevremović. "18 žutih ruža" EP was sold out in 200000 copies. On that EP they covered "The House Of The Rising Sun". They split up in 1967 after "Beogradsko proleće" festival. (from jugobeat.com)

DRAGO MLINAREC - A ti se ne daj (1971)


DRAGO MLINAREC was one of the most prolific singer/songwriters in the former Yugoslavia and the leader of the renowned beatsters Grupa 220, the first ex-YU rock band that managed to record an LP album back in 1968 in Zagreb, Croatia. Upon the break-up of the group's first line-up in 1970, Mlinarec gathered a new Grupa 220 band with the musicians: Husein Hasanefendić, Ivan Piko Stančić, Nenad Zubak and Brane Živković. He planned a new Grupa 220 album, but instead decided to issue it under his solo name, "A ti se ne daj" in 1971. That album marked the beginning of his solo career and the following year saw the release of "Pjesme s planine", critically acclaimed LP with Zubak and Stančić of Grupa 220 as rhythm section. The third album "Rođenje" in 1975 introduced keyboard player Neven Frangeš with whom Mlinarec was about to collaborate until 1978, recording two more albums. During 1970s Mlinarec also appeared at many rock festivals including famous "Boom pop festival" in Ljubljana 1972 and 1973, and was engaged in composing music for several theatre plays, TV shows, documentary and feature films. From 1979 till 1983 he recorded three albums in Sweden with producer/multiinstrumentalist Tinnie Varga, while during the 1980s he collaborated with Zagreb-based New Wave bands Azra and Le Cinema. Around 1987 Mlinarec moved to the Croatian countryside, where he lived away from publicity until 1994 when he recorded an ambient-experimental cassette tape "Analog" with Aldo Ivančić. The CD retrospective "Krhotine" appeared in 1996, which presented a recap of his entire career. In 1997 Mlinarec won Croatian music honorary award "Porin" for life accomplishment in music. Mlinarec's first four albums ("A ti se ne daj", "Pjesme s planine", "Rođenje" and "Negdje postoji netko") are usually regarded to be the best; there he explored diverse musical interests, crossing over between acid-tinged jam proto-prog rock with long compositions featuring guitar, organ and flute solos, and more mellow acoustic and electric folk rock with progressive and sometimes psychedelic or "classical" feeling. On one hand it resembles Traffic or CSN&Y, on the other "Meddle"-era Pink Floyd. Recommended to fans of folk-rock, progressive folk and acoustic guitars with melodic but sometimes extended songs, with psyche moments. (progarchives.com)
