Artia Prague
Made in Czechoslovakia
℗ 1971

PZO Artia export release, orange center labels.

Uncredited:
Basic instrumental tracks on side A, as well as the complete side B (incl. the matrix number) are identical to the original 1970 release “Meditace” (Supraphon 1 13 0689), recorded June–August 1969 at studio Dejvice.
Vocal overdubs A1, A3 & A4 recorded on October 21, 1970 at studio Mozarteum.

On earlier pressings and on CD reissues, recitation on track A1 was credited to Jaroslav Kummermann, apparently the studio doorman. The “Jaroslav Čmehil” credit on this later pressing may be faked due to censorship.

Track A5 is instrumental, with erroneously credited vocals on center label.

Original Czech track titles side A:
Paměť lásky, Blue Effect Street, Fénix, Stroj na nic, Sluneční hrob
