Igra Staklenih Perli, Serbia

Igra Staklenih Perli - Soft Explosion Live. Recorded 1978. Released 1993 Kalemegdan.
Igra Staklenih Perli - Inner Flow. Recorded 1978. Released 1993 Kalemegdan.
Igra Staklenih Perli - Drives. Recorded 1977. Released 1994 Kalemegdan.

"Soft Explosion Live" is basically a live version of their 1979 debut album. "Inner Flow" contains various recordings (live and studio) taken from 1976 to 1978. "Drives" is their most freaked out album, and is culled from roughly 5 hours of recorded private tapes called "Triple Live Numbers 1-3". All are from prior to their first actual studio album, and thus more similar to their early Pink Floyd improvisational style. Apparently some of the "Triple Live" tapes are still missing, and there was talk (back in 1994 that is) of releasing more material from these sessions. Obviously that was put on hold, as I write this 14 years later. All of these archival releases were reissued on LP with excellent sound and covers. In particular, the "Drives" cover is simply amazing, and could be rated amongst the best album covers of the 1970s. Since the Brazilian label Rock Symphony licensed the Tako's from Kalemegdan, I would presume it's only a matter of time before these albums are licensed by some enterprising CD label. Unfortunately Kalemegdan never did reissue the actual RTB albums back in the day, though the parent label RTB PGP of Serbia did finally reissue them on CD in 2008.

Priority: 2

Incidentally, the only legit CD version of the first two studio Igra Staklenih Perli's, came out in Serbia. If your cover doesn't look like the below, you're in possession of a bootleg (which were numerous prior to this reissue).
