    This is a thread for those who don't care about strange, foreigner language if the songs are belonging to the genre of Progressive music. And if they are good ones, of course.
    The bands that will be represented in this thread are Progressive rock bands from the 70s in former Yugoslavia. A common thing for Yugo-Prog bands is that they were heavier than most of the progressive rock bands in other continental Europe countries like Italy, France and so on; although heavier, they were still to be prog, which is pretty unique.
    I'd like to start the thread with a footage from Smak's one-off open air concert in 2015, at Belgrade's Ušće park. On the front of 50 000 fans - both new, young fans and oldies - they play the opening / title track from their second album Crna Dama ("Black Lady") from 1977.





    p.s. All those live footages in this thread will be professional footages as well. Enjoy!

    Time Za koji život treba da se rodim (Time LP, 1972)



    Translation:

    Which life should I have been born for

    which life should I have been born for
    which judgement day should I live for
    and which God should I pray to
    and which woman should I love

    whose love should I be happy for
    whose wounds should I be bleeding for
    on which candleholder should I be the candle
    which woman should I be naked for

    I won't ever know these things
    Where the roads of my life are taking me
    Whose wish it is, for us to be born, live and die

    whose heaven should I be the rainbow for
    whose nights should I be light for
    which song should I be the sadness for
    In whose glass should I be the liquor

    whose autumn should I be a harvest for
    which painting should I be the brush for
    On whose lips should I be the curse
    which branches should I be the leaf for

    Smak Plava pesma ("Blue Song") (a song from their 1977 album Crna Dama; live version from 2012, Kombank Arena, Belgrade)



    This is my personal favourite song by Smak. So, in the next two posts I will put the vids of studio version and the version from the U.S. release of Crna dama, as the album was re-written in English and re-named to Fantasy for U.S. market and its got an album-jacket that was different than Yugoslav release, UK and then-West Germany releases as well. Btw, in UK, the album got one negative (Melody Maker) and one afirmative review (Guitar Player).
