Just a brief notification to GOTGE readers that, on 10th April 1974, Valérie Čižmárová completed work on her eponymous LP with the recording of the concluding track, ‘Slova kolem nás’ (‘The Word About Us’). There was an intention to have an embedding of the track here, but domestic circumstances have militated against that today, so that is perhaps something for GOTGE readers to look forward to this time next year, or rather, readers of the sister Blog to GOTGE, the new Valérie Čižmárová Fan Blog, ‘Bananas For Breakfast’.
Nevertheless, I suppose that, since I have made reference to Valinka’s 1973 singles recordings as a sort of ‘virtual LP’ and LPs are the subject-in-hand, now would be a good excuse for the track listing for a real LP, on vinyl, on Supraphon, possibly entitled ‘Rok v životě Valérii Čižmárové’ (‘A Year In The Life Of Valérie Čižmárová’), with this piece of work by Vilém Sochůrek on the front cover (being a photo dating from 1973)…
…and this other piece of work by Vilém Sochůrek, from the same year, on the rear…
Where I can embed individual YouTube videos associated with those tracks I do so.
‘Tak měj mě rád’ (‘So Just Love Me’)
‘Mít aero a létat’ (‘To Have A Plane And To Fly’)
‘Pojď jen dál’ (‘Just Come On’)
‘Sbohem, školní bráno’ (‘Farewell, School Gate’)
‘Důkaz mi dej’ (‘Prove It To Me’)
‘V poschodí pátém’ (‘On The Fifth Floor’)
‘Malý princ’ (‘Little Prince’)
‘Žar léta’ (‘The Glow Of The Years’)
‘Láska na dlani’ (‘Love In The Palm Of The Hand’)
‘Náhodou’ (‘By Chance’)
‘Spousta příběhů’ (‘Lots Of Stories’)
(One might have seen, elsewhere in GOTGE, my talking of the recording date for ‘Huascarán’ as being 4th May 1972. However, I am beginning to have misgivings about that information and to be thinking that this should be included as a recording from 1973.)
Watch this fly off the record shop shelves!
Go on, Supraphon…you know you want to! (Sometime in 2023…to mark fifty years down the line, perhaps?)
There’s one ready-made customer somewhere in the UK 😉
