Collage

Here's a personal compilation of ultra-hip vocalese-jazz recordings by Estonian group Collage culled from their impossible-to-find Russian Melodiya albums from the seventies. Legendary stuff this, impossible to adequately put into words and incomparable in form & delivery to anything I can immediately think of. Try Estonian Novi Singers & you'll have some idea!

This seven-piece consists of three female vocalists who sound like angels and four male musicians. Together they perform an incredible combination of jazzy, classical folk tunes and whilst many of the songs have an ethereal hymnal quality, they all come together to forge a timeless and irresistable groove!

Absolutely essential...

1) Mets Neidude Vahel
2) Halb Sirp
3) Petis Peiu
4) Kee, Pada
5) Neiud Lähevad Ära
6) Uni, Tule Silma Peale!
7) Memme Vaev
8) Ehted Kadunud
9) Kodukingu Kuusik
10) Neiut Pole Kodus
11) Vastlalaul
12) Oh, Seda Õnnista Eluga
13) Bossanova Hing
14) Üheskoos

What a pleasant surprise! Was expecting a Swingle Singer type sound, but certainly isn't.
Appreciate the share, nice one indeed! Cheers from the US!

Help! I am pasting the URL into a new window (http://rapidshare.de/files/20011022/Quimsy_s_Collage_Melodiya_Vol._I__1970s_.zip) but I am still getting the file not found message. What am I doing wrong?

Quimsy said...

The link is up and working - perhaps u are being restricted in some way.

tor said...

It happend to me also. I got a file not found message from rapidshare.

Quimsy said...

Update: The 4th or 5th time I tried the link I got through, so keep trying if you get a not found message! I am now digging the buttery sound of Collage... Quimsy, thank you for this and your fine posts!

mizake said...

Downloading worked fine here, and WOW what a great group. Where can I find some more info about their records?

savoadaki said...

My this is a real treat. I've downloaded this a little later, but with no problem here in Canada.
I do so enjoy your blog, and appreciate how you don't crowd your blog with so many offerings one cannot possible download all. I can keep up with your blog, and I appreciate that very much. I really like Latin music, and you have a nicely varied selection.
Muchas gracias.

great stuff - thanks for this!

My new favorite...it's like Guillaume de Machaut set over loungey jazz. It really must be heard to be believed, and frankly, after hearing it, I still don't believe it!

Quimsy said...

not altogether inaccurate - glad u like it.

Smiling... Anybody not impressed with this compilation?! Had it unzipped for days because there was too much to do. But what a remarkable treat it was when I listened to it.

Is my guess correct that there might be another volume of Collage later on (seeing as this file's titled vol 1)?

Many thanks for this one (too)

I scored the 4 track vinyl EP that was re-issued a couple of years ago.

Quimsy said...

Hi Gary - the 2 tracks were fine. Much appreciated

Take care.

Quimsy said...

By chance I have that "Collage" LP posted above and altho' nice is the U.S. band from the same era (1971) on Golden Crest Records CRS-31023 - and not the Estonian group.

Cheers

PS said...

Just thought you may enjoy it ...nice bit if bossa always goes down well and it links up nicely with the similar name ...sort of east meets west :)

Quimsy said...
