Korni Grupa - Not An Ordinary Life (1974)
The second album from this Yugoslav Serbian band.
The band was a quintet with a lineup of drums, bass, keyboards, guitars and vocals.
This album was the only album the band released under the name Kornelyans. I do not know the reason why they changed to this name.
They changed their name back to Korni Grupa on their next album.
I reviewed their 1972 self-titled debut album one week ago and did not fall for that album. You can read the review here.
The artwork on this album is the spitting image of the old Pepsi Cola boxes. I remember them well, but did not know they were available in Beograd where this album was recorded.
New name, but the band continued on from their 1972 debut album. Heavy rock with some pop and folk rock. A lot of what we today would label ethno rock. Rock from Balkan.
The music is very complex at times. But it is not a good albu despite of including a big hit song, Generation 42. A very local hit, that is.
This is a decent album, but nothing more than that.
