2004 release. "On May 16, 2004, the station Radio Beat inducted three Czech legends into the new Beat Hall of Fame: Vladimir Misik, Jiri Schelinger (in memoriam) and the band Blue Effect, whose profile double CD was released immediately afterwards. The first of the discs was compiled on the basis of Radio Beat listeners voting for their favorite songs, the second was put together by the band's frontman Radim Hladik and the journalists Radek Diestler and Vojtech Lindaur. It features five rarity concert recordings made in 1973, the composition 'Golem' from the long-unavailable LP Stare Povestie Ceske (Old Czech Legends) and, most notably, a large part of the studio recordings of a series of musical settings of Jiri Wolker's poems, which the band recorded for Pilsen's Alfa theater in 1979. The extensive booklet comes with unique photographs, a detailed calendar, the producers' notes and texts written by the band's contemporaries Ondrej Konrad and Vojtech Lindaur. And what's more, over sixty minutes of recordings are appearing on CD for the very first time."
