Mrowisko (The Hive)

LP (Item 474503) Polskie Nagrania (Poland), Early 70s — Condition: New Copy
Gatefold (reissue)
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 10

Hip work from the Polish scene at the start of the 70s – a Hammond-heavy combo with a fair bit of jazz in their grooves – almost a more progressive take on the Brit beat group sound of the 60s, but without all of the progressive modes that other Euro groups were moving into! There's a great blend of basslines, percussion, and organ in the group's approach – and although there's a number of tracks with vocals, there's also others where the instrumentation really dominates, and those are especially appealing to us. Production is cool too – often echoey and effect-heavy – and titles include "A Dream", "Temptation", "The Nerves Of Cities", "Thoughts", "The Hive", and "The Starveling's Dance". (Very limited vinyl reissue – pressed up in a heavy, deluxe package!)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
