Všechno nejlepší k narozeninám, Jituš!

A bit on the late side now for Central European Time…but just to say a ‘Happy Birthday!’ to Jitka Zelenková.

It is only relatively recently that I have discovered that Jituš’s ‘Caesar a Kleopatra’ (whose title needs little translating!), recorded on 28th June 1971 at the studios at Dejvice, Prague, with music by Petr Janda, lyrics by Michael Prostějovský, instrumental accompaniment from Taneční orchestr Čs. rozhlasu (The Czechoslovak Radio Dance Orchestra) under Josef Vobruba featured none other than Valérie Čižmárová (along with Svatava Černá) on backing vocals. This is even having known about that song for over a year now, which doesn’t sound all that long in global terms, but in the world of GOTGE that is an eternity!

Here it is….and no wonder I liked it!
