ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Cocek Mambo: (ORIGINAL - 2/4)
Written by Kip, this tune uses all the 7th chords you can make from the Hijaz scale, plus a couple.

O Male/Pajdusko: (BULGARIAN - 5/16)
A young girl learns that her love is to marry another. She writes him, "Go ahead, I've become engaged to our neighbor." O Male!

Pamela's Rucenitsa: (ORIGINAL - 7/16)
Steve won't tell us who his Bulgarian-style tune is about, but we suspect someone named Pamela.

Katerino Mome: (BULGARIAN/MACEDONIAN - 4/4)
This asks the musical question, "What sort of mother gave birth to you, and how wild were you as a girl?" We think you'll find the answer amusing.

Pleasant Peasant: (ORIGINAL - 11/8)
A tune written by our friend, that cool dude, Souren Baronian.

Pravo Medley: (BULGARIAN 2/4, 6/8)
JANO JANKE VAKLO AGNE: A song about the perfect love connection in Strandza. TRUGNAL E MARKO: Marko's new bride won't sing for him in the forest. She fears her hajduk ex-lover may hear. Pretty scary!

Kopanitsa Medley: (BULGARIAN - 11/8)
TRUGNALI MOMI NEVESTI - Young women are gathering strawberries when they are set upon by Tatars. Yikes! The second tune is a kaval (flute) tune played by Steve on saxophone.

Malko Pajdusko: (ORIGINAL - 5/8)
A tune written by Allan. Pretty good for a bass player.

Cocek '80: (MACEDONIAN - 2/4)
A tune from Ferus Mustafov (Bill provides the Del Shannon touch).

Rucenitsa Medley: (BULGARIAN/MACEDONIAN - 7/8)
MORI MARE: Mare leaves her husband for a pair of "dark eyes". An unusual love song, the woman gets her way.
TRUGNAL MOMKO: A love song comparing the beauty of a young woman to a variety of natural and agricultural delights.

Levendikos: (MACEDONIAN - 16/16)
We learned this from a recording Steve made near Florina, Greece.

Finally, this great music is on CD!
This is one of my all-time favorite albums. It seriously rocks, and is wonderful for listening or dancing. Highly recommended!

Bulgaria Meets Rock a Great Result
I have a lot of experience with Bulgarian and Balkan music and know the quality of the arrangements and authenticity of the music is of the highest quality. Note the different rhythms which are so typical all over the Balkans. It is not stated, but the first cut is Greek, a Syrto, probably the most popular dance in that country. The guitar solo late in the piece is worthy of any rock hero of the 60s or 70s. The singing is worthy of any of the legendary Bulgarian women recordings since the 1950s. All of the tunes are hits, with no misses in the entire CD. It is a creative and imaginative mix of traditions of Bulgaria and the modern influence of American rock. The recording was done in 1991 and I have heard that all the musicians have improved greatly since then.
