Today is a double celebration (also marked over on ‘Bananas For Breakfast’) of the forty-sixth ‘birthday’ of the recording – at the studio in Dejvice, Prague – of two records that were based on the orange RCA label Bubblegum Pop output of, variously, Middle Of The Road and The Sweet.
Hana Zagorová – the one who started my journey into the weird and wonderful world of Eastern Bloc female Pop – took on Middle Of The Road’s ‘Tweedle Dee, Tweedle Dum’, as ‘Pan Tydlitýt a pan Tydlitát’, while Valérie Čižmárová took on The Sweet’s ‘Co-Co’, as ‘Koko’.
This was going to be a more thoroughly-written affair, but I’ve just fully joined the ‘communications revolution’ and have been busy this evening with seeing how my blog looks on a proper smartphone!
I’ll get this out while it’s still the 22nd!
It is a hugely significant date, though, so I at least wanted to mark it.
