Reissue of impossible to find psychedelic masterpiece. Made in the mid 70's in old Yugoslavia. "This is one of the best Pink Floyd-esque psychedelic albums. Stunning guitars and killer keyboards. Anyone into heavy psychedelia needs this one!”
First album from the ultimate ex-Yugoslavian space/psychedelic rock band, formed in 1976 in Belgrade, Serbia, having been named after the famous novel by Hermann Hesse, "Das Glasperlenspiel" (The Glass Beads Game). The original line-up consisted of: Zoran Lakic (keyboards), Vojkan Rakic (guitar), Predrag Vukovic (percussions) and Drasko Nikodijevic (bass & vocals). In late 1977 Dragan Soc joined the band as drummer while they played live concerts at Belgrade clubs, preparing to start recording their first album, which they did in mid 1978. Upon its release the next year, the band gained reputation for elaborated visual stage effects and light show directed by their friend Goran Cvetic.
IGRA STAKLENIH PERLI labeled their music style as "stream of consciousness music". Both studio albums, the eponymous "Igra Staklenih Perli" from 1979 and "Vrt Svetlosti" from 1980, are pretty similar in sound and resemble the style from early Pink Floyd and Hawkwind psychedelia, to German kraut-rock (notably Can and Tangerine Dream)
