News: Bargain Bárta & Balzar

Residents of the Czech Republic (and brighter-than-average tourists) will be familiar with the very cheap CDs and DVDs that are on sale here. And no, that does not mean that they are dodgy, just that you have a cardboard sleeve instead of a plastic box.

As well as big-name movies and concerts by internationally recognised musicians (concerts by Johnny Cash, Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan are all out and about at the moment) they also sometimes feature local music. Entropicture, a CD by Dan Bárta, is currently available for a humble 48 Kč, and as usual his band includes the Robert Balzar Trio (bass, drums, piano).

This is a cheap and easy way to sample Robert, Jiří and Stanislav in their alternate guise so keep a lookout for Entropicture. News stands and grocery stores are good places to find these cheap CDs and DVDs, so happy hunting!
