Budapest Beat Club

I have finally got round to listening to the old vinyl albums I picked up in Budapest a couple of months ago. Disappointingly, most of them are patchy at best. There is one notable exception - "Rocklegendak", a 1982 compilation album featuring assorted Hungarian hits from 1966 to 1970. Here are three of the many highlights.

"Atmentem A Szivarvarny Alatt" - Kati Kovacs & Scampolo (1970)

"Hova Siet Ez Az Elet" - Dogs (1968)

"Par Csepp Mez" - Metro (1968)

Here is Kati rocking out a few years later.

In that clip Kati appears to combine the early vocal style of Suzi Quatro and the early hairstyle of Chris Norman of Smokie. Probably better that than the other way round.
