DUBROVACKI TRUBADURI, Luda pjesma, 1970

This is probably my find of the week, so for no other reason than that I`m posting this 45 by the Croatian band Dubrovacki Trubaduri. I bought a bunch of records at a thrift-store that I check regularly and almost left this one, thinking it was the usual, boring Yugoslav folk music. But for 50 cents a piece I gave it a chance and what a surprise! The b-side “Luda pjesma” is a lightning-fast beat stomper with a touch of soul music and great saxophone, trumpet and drum breaks!

Dubrovacki Trubaduri ( The troubadours from Dubrovnic ) were a popular pop/beat group from, you guessed it, Dubrovnic, Croatia. In 1968 they won the Yugoslav preliminaries to the European Song Contest and came out 7th in the finals, together with Belgium and Monaco. Most of their songs were a mixture of folk and pop music, hence the historical costumes.
