The Bayan Mongol Variety Group existed from the early ’70s to the late ’80s. After the collapse of the USSR, the ensemble began to experience serious difficulties with funding and booking concerts, and finally disintegrated, after which the participants lost contact with each other. Fortunately, thanks to efforts from the fans, some old contacts were reestablished, key records and sound sources were dug up, and now this historical record is released again. File under funk, jazz rock, prog rock, or psychedelic rock. Reissued in cooperation with the band.
The band on the album cover is not Bayan Mongol, but Soyol Erdene, which will be reissued on Everland in early summer 2019 too, also in collaboration with the band.
The band photos of the 2 bands were mixed up by the original Russian label Melodia back in the 70ies, Bayan Mongol is an orchestra with around 60 people.
