Big in Bohemia

Checking the blog today I found in the comments under my most recent post the following message from a George: "Never mind this, we need more German cover versions of Carole Bayer Sager songs".

I can't quite decide whether or not he is being sarcastic. If he is, then he deserves what is about to follow. If he isn't, he might actually enjoy it. It is some vintage Czech AOR courtesy of Michal Prokop & Framus Five. The first track is taken from their 1980 album "Holubi Dante" (which if Google Translate is to be believed means "Pigeon Dante"); the second was a single the previous year. Close your eyes and you can almost see the yachts on Černé Jezero.

"Noc Je Dlouha" - Michal Prokop & Framus Five

Today's clip is by way of a tribute to one of my childhood heroes, whose death was announced earlier today. John Noakes RIP.


  1. I thought I posted a commnent, it must have gone to someone else's blog....
    Track 2 seems to be an example of czech prog rock. Like german cover versions of pop songs this genre is something we need more of. Well done.

    1. Now I'm sure you're being sarcastic. And Heaven help whoever you posted your original comment to when they try to work out what it means
