Baroque pop in psychedelic and fairy-tale layout – from Prague! Solo album by Josef Plíva (former member of The Rebels) with twelve fairy-tale songs arranged with grace by Vaclav Zahradnik. One of the most beautiful albums of 60’s. It was not well known in those times.

In 1968, The Rebels (with, among others, young Jiří Korn) recorded the cult album “Šípková Růženka”. Soon after that Josef Plíva, the best vocalist in band, recorded its English version. The average covers of The Mamas and the Papas were replaced here by the band’s own compositions. The result was a consistent and a full of charm album. It reminded the best song and psychedelic achievements from the UK and the US of those years.

“Fairy-Tales in Beat” appears for the first time on CD. The album is remastered from the original tapes from the Supraphon vaults. Two bonus tracks – Czech versions of songs, previously known from the single. The booklet includes a new liner notes about the project.
