In today’s Sunday Music we will be listening to early recordings by the Czech rock group Abraxas, founded in 1976. The band released a new two-CD “Best of…” compilation called Nekonečný Boogie covering nine separate albums. Over the years the group, developed in different musical directions, including New Wave in the 1980s.
Today we are covering tracks from early in their career including some instrumental songs and many of their early hits of their debut Box (the Czech word for the sport of Boxing), released in 1982.
A future Sunday Music will focus on their later work.
