"Velvet Revolution and saw *it's* first public screening in 1990"


did you know that just up until the "revolution" kids were forced to spy on their parents... This was one of the lessons taught at schools... my, how times have(n't) changed.


Although in a sense 'derivative' (as the Beatles and Stones were also), some of these songs are as creative as what was going on in Great Britain at the time - some of these groups were doing more sophisticated vocal harmony than most of what we were hearing on the radio at the time. And the group about a third of the way (beginning with a string arrangement) in seem to prefigure the prog group Gentle Giant...

It's a fascinating piece of popular culture - I'd love to see a better version of it.
