Blood, Sweat and Tears, under the auspices of the State Department, left US today on the first tour by a rock group to the Eastern European countries (the trip is a favour for the US governement, which issues David Clayton-Thomas a green card in return). The 26-day, 11-concert tour included Zagreb, Sarajevo, Belgrade and Ljubljana in Socijalistička Federativna Republika Jugoslavija; Constanța, București and Ploiești in România; and Warsaw and Poznań in Rzeczpospolita Polska. The concert in Ploiești, România, was performed on behalf of the ‘Românian Flood Relief’. Blood, Sweat and Tears has waived all fees for the tour, which was filmed by National General Television Productions for TV and possibly motion picture release that actually finally didn’t happen. The group travel to Europe with their own equipment, especially designed to handle D.C. current. All accommodations and food was paid by the governments of the respective countries in local currency, with the State Department backing this in dollars. According to Larry Goldblatt, BS&T’s then manager, the purpose of the trip was to show the Eastern Europeans what American youth is thinking and doing about their situation. There was also a chance that recording an album of the concerts was possibile but actually finally didn’t happen.

NIŠVILLE JAZZ FESTIVAL
JUGOSVIRKE – JUGOCONCERTSAt the times of YUGOSLAVIA many groups, orchestras and artists were having gigs there. These concerts were at that time among very few for these parts of the world, because YUGOSLAVIA was surrounded by heavy communist countries. Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria and Albania were under SOVIET domain. That was the golden time for YUGOSLAV recording companies such as PGP, YUGOTON,YUGODISK, DISKOS or SUZY. This blog is dedicated to those times of great YUGOSLAVIA and all the concerts that occured then!
