does anybody know if a different version of "strange.." with the english lyrics was published. (I mean different from the CBS LP-version)
some years ago I found an acetat from Italy. It contains the song with the english lyrics but the music is much closer to the polish version from '67 with horns and a lighter sound than on th LP.
the date on the acetat reads 7-1-71.
Does anybody know if that is a known version?
Hey Dreckrock !
There are two demo-records with "Strange is this world" from 1971.
7-1-71 is the first London track . The guitar was probably recorded in studio CGD in Bologna .
Second version was presented in Polish Radio.
This version of "Strange Is This World" was recorded to be published on LP with standards.
That LP wasn't published by CGD in Italy or Fontana in England (alas).
are we talking about version which was issued in (as I heard) about 100 copies with music from italian "Strange is this world" and english lyrics which was used later on the Lp from CBS?
it's definetly not the version from the CBS-LP.
And it's not the one which was aired by polish radio.
Marek says that 2 version were recorded during 71 London session and this might be one of them.
If someone knows of a Webspace where I can put it I will upload an excerpt of it as mp3 so you can compare
I remember hearing this version on Polish radio, most likely on "Rozglosnia Harcerska", in 68-69(?), and once only. If I remember correctly, this was recorded to facilitate Niemen's planned attack on British music market, possibly for Alan Freeman, at the time Alan was busy with Maryla Rodowicz. To my knowledge it was never oficially released.
I believe the music track is actually from the Italian version, maybe slightly different mix, guitar is obviously by Tomasz Jaskiewicz.
I have no idea what is it. It's not printed out but just signed with hand. Is there any other information on the box? or on the other side?
