The very rare National Balkan Ensemble record on Ebay!


The very rare Various Artists record with three tracks by the National Balkan Ensemble (Standard Music Library ESL 112, 1970) is on sale on Ebay at 95 pounds until October 9th. 


[Note the composers' names printed on the back cover that testify the origins of the band!]


A reconstruction of the album's fascinating story is available on this Archive at http://ghettoraga.blogspot.it/2009/12/national-balkan-ensemble-aka-third-ear_11.html
As our post-folk wizard Sedayne states in a post under  here, "It's worth noting that the other side of this album is a sequence of 'Comedy Links & Bridges' - several of which feature in both series of Catweazle. I often think the NBE tracks would have suited Geoffrey Bayldon's time-travelling medieval wizard down to the ground. Jason's Trip, for example, is Catweazle's very essence!".

Infact, one has to admit really intriguing the connections between TEB/NBE music and Catweazle's contents (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catweazle, http://www.catweazlefanclub.co.uk/, http://www.paulpert.com/catweazlepage1.htm)...

  1. It's worth noting that the other side of this album is a sequence of 'Comedy Links & Bridges' - several of which feature in both series of Catweazle. I often think the NBE tracks would have suited Geoffrey Bayldon's time-travelling medieval wizard down to the ground. Jason's Trip, for example, is Catweazle's very essence!
