Matadors - Matadors (1968)

The Matadors were a Czech band who had hits in Germany and flourished during the 1968 anti communist uprising in Czech. Members of this band are now in the Czech Government! This CD is a collection of all their recordings. AMAZING, WILD Psych/Freakbeat that is like a cross between The Pretty things, early Floyd and Vanilla Fudge. A Total clasic with stunning sound quality, English vocals etc. Official release that contains 24 tracks including the rare EP's and singles that were issued on the Supraphon records (Czech releases only).
