Two boxes, each containing four CDs of Jakub Noha. Altogether eight albums reveal what an outstanding personality Jakub NOha is on the Czech music scene. This retrospective of the songwriter, composer, lyricist, guitarist and singer, portrays his entire musical period. Six albums contain not only the recordings of the acoustic folk concerts but also the rock band, Jakbu Nohaband with various line ups and guests.
The first album in the collection is the debut recording of Jakub Noha “Popelka jde na ples” (i.e. Cinderella Goes to the Ball) from 1991, which has been released only on vinyl so far and has been unavailable for quite a few years. The last of the eight albums is the cherry on top; it is full of really rare pieces recorded at home on a tape recorder. The quality of some of the concert recordings corresponds to the time they were made. Although the recordings have gone through careful mastering, they are very authentic, contemporary and very raw. Both boxes also contain a recent interview of Jakub NOha with the publicist Jaroslav Riedl and all the song lyrics that are on the CD.
