Leb I Sol - Putujemo (1989)
The tenth album from this band from Macedonia.
The band was a quartet with a lineup of drums, bass, keyboards, guitars and vocals.
The band had help from some guest musicians who provided flugelhorn, clarinet, saxophone, keyboards and vocals.
I have bypassed a lot of their albums before arriving at this album. This because I do not have those other albums.
The band was once a great fusion band in the same vein as Mahavishnu Orchestra. That was in the 1970s.
Ten years later, the band is reduced to a cheap pop rock band.
The great guitarist Vlatko Stefanovski's talents is totally wasted on this album. His guitars are subtle and the only flicker of quality on this album. His guitars are sparsely used, though.
The rest of this forty minutes long album has some painful pop rock with some folk rock influences. This version of Leb I Sol is not even a shadow of the Leb I Sol you can find on their first three albums.
Avoid this album at all costs.
