Released in the early 70s probably this obscure LP holds some very special tracks. Mr. Spaleny's english is interesting. His voice is too. I'd bet he was announced as the czech Lee Hazlewood when he tingled through the bars behind the iron curtain. After having listened to it twice I was absolutely sure that this man might be at least a little humorous. Check his version of "Games people play" and try to listen to it all the way through. Be sure that it won't get any worse. Instead it's getting up in space or some other strange place. Just enter Mr. Spaleny's Apollo and fly off with the "Dalailama" to the "Blubbering Baby" and be sure to check if that "Pipe smoke is magic".
