Blue Effect - Modrý Efekt a Radim Hladík (1974)
This album was not meant to be instrumental originally, but communists forced the members of Blue Effect to leave out the vocals (because of the lyrics) and later also to change the name of the band to czech equivalent "Modrý Efekt". But even these facts don't influence the high quality of the recordings, solo guitarist and song-writer Radim Hladík is at his best and shows his talent especially on the legendary song called "Čajovna". Newly released version of the album includes two bonus tracks recorded in Germany in 1973.
