Syrius - Live Concert at Café Bongo, Paks (Hungary) on 6 September, 2001 - Label (Unknown)

A reunion concert of the late Jackie Orszaczky's great jazz fusion band after 28 years. This album has been released in a few different versions, and track listings vary.Syrius was formed by Zsolt Baronits in Hungary in 1962. Originally, they played early beat music, but dramatically by 1970, they had metamorphisized into a top class progressive rock and jazz-rock fusion outfit. Their best known album is probably "Devil's Masquerade," which was released in Australia, where they had a contract. If you can find it, you should listen to Jackie Orszaczky & Tibor Tatrai's great 2007 album, "Deserted Downtown," which is worth listening to for Tibor Tatrai's great guitar playing. Regarding this live album, any definite info. related to the venue, track titles, and composers, would be appreciated by A.O.O.F.C. I am not sure if all the tracks are actually from the date and venue listed, or indeed, if the track titles are correct. The album is a (128) so please make allowances for sound quality.
