Radosna sprawa, która wymaga od rockowego słuchacza wejścia w świat szczegółu i szczególiku, która pod przykrywką szansonowej polerki, błyszczących marynar i komunistycznych dansingów skrywa ciekawą gitarę, świadomość jazz-rocka, psychodelii i hard-rocka. Ujawnia to incydentalnie inteligentnie wprowadzając wywrotową myśl. To bunt w kształcie możliwym pod rządami dyktatury, jeśli chce się opuścić piwnicę i nie ryzykować kontaktu z Panami rozmawiającymi z ludźmi numerami paragrafów. Rozwichrzony włos pod warstwą brylantyny, gnat w jaskrawej marynarce i bluzg w słowach, które do końca niewypowiedziane. Asekuranckie, ale na swój sposób piękne. Kontynuowałem radosny wieczór z debiutem rumuńskiego Phoenix, z "Das Gewitter" Uve Schickora & Seine Gruppe i czechami z Umela Hmota II. To był pyszny czas

Pozdrawiam
