Izvir, Slovenia

Izvir - s/t. 1977 RTV.

Of all the obscure former Yugoslavian progressive rock albums, I think Izvir remains the most elusive. Album starts out in spacey psychedelic territory ala Igra Staklenih Perli, but oddly enough abandons that sound altogether after the lengthy first track and opts towards a funky fusion direction. Somewhere between mid 70s Santana (notable in the song craft, guitar and organ sounds) and “Dunajska Legenda” era Fermata, you will find the music of Izvir. Sounds like a Slovenian Malo, if that's even possible to fathom! This one is a grower, as the disco era melodies hold a certain nostalgic pull. Lots of clavinet, almost defining the funky sounds within.

Priority: 3
