IMANTS KALNINS-blow wind blow-PUT VEJINI-ORCHESTRAL FUZZ PSYCHEDELIC LATVIAN ELEVATIONS!

UPDATE-SINCE YOUTUBE TOOK DOWN MY ACCOUNT
I HAVE NO VIDEO CLIPS FOR MANY POSTS ANY LONGER.
SOME LIKE THIS ONE WILL BE RESTORED IN TIME.
THANKS



A while ago, I found a few Latvian 7" Ep's from various movie soundtracks from
the early 1970's, among them was this EP by IMANTS KALNINS, called "put vjini" or in
english "blow wind blow" and upon listening, it knocked my rocks into orbit. I love the orchestral arrangements
and incorporation of a static ridden fuzz guitar. Many moods and alot based on Latvian
folk traditions in music, Imants expanded upon these moods with another release I will
talk about more in another post, based on symphony no.4, where Imants takes a contemporary
(at the time early 70's) rock group and sets it to a competent orchestra, with his take on arrangments.
Both come from a time of social upheaval, and freedom of expression.

Along with this EP I found
and LP by Giedrius Kuprevicius, called "in chase of fire" and was Latvia's answer to the world of the rock
opera, so there is a parallel here, with Imants, they are both from similar vein, influence, and incorporate rock arrangements with full orchestration meanwhile bringing in folk influences, plus socio-political themes. I am planning a full posting of "in chase of fire" in the future, it's a knock out.
Now, again with Imants, I find him and Giedrius to be a real treasure to listen to, and qualify them in my mind as innovative musical geniuses, that deserve a bit of exposure on the web. 

I posted the whole EP and have included the utube clips here from wax, and then I was able to source out the actual video clips from the movie "blow wind blow" which the music was utilized. there is music in the video clips, typically , not available on record. 
I find the movie mezmerizing, and heavy in folk tradition. I hope someone can comment on some of the themes. The last scene of the boat on water with the orange sunset, fits perfectly with the long fuzz bursts laid out over orchestra.

FUTURE SHOCK-CANADA FUNK 45- UNKNOWN!! Cover of CYMANDE CLASSIC-THE MESSAGE LISTEN !!

Man o ham, I really have a pile of stuff in my mind to share ! I finally got this little cut out, after thinking about it the other day, and wondering, and worrying "where the heck is it!" I thought i lost it among a pile of stuff i was throwing out.
Goodness, I found it, and am I glad. This is a fine little 2 sider to throw up on here for you to tune into .
I don't recall hearing any Cymande covers, except for maybe when they were "rediscovered" by the masses after a few Hip Hop producers used some samples. De La Soul Comes to mind. I did not discover them before De La myself, that was my stepping off point for me and I'm sure many others, back in 1988. (prince paul, stand tall!)
This leads to this 45 I digitized on youtube. Here's the information :

FUTURE SHOCK-the message (cymande) / so near yet so far (ed-dee staxx) Ultra records-SCV-2020-(1976??) - Recorded at Sound Canada in 1970 something or other.. no definitive about year, sorry.

Who is this Ed Dee Staxx dood? He wrote the A side "so near yet so far" The labels on my copy are
reversed.
Tell me what you think of this cover! Does anyone else know that this existed? Any history we can fill in here??

WE ARE VERY BUSY - PLEASE BE PATIENT FOR LINKS!
