INDEXI - "THE BEST OF" (1971-1980) [Released by Muzički Magazin in 2011]

Indexi was a Bosnian rock band active from the early Sixties. From 1967 to the mid Seventies they were the country's most important band. The huge popularity earned them the nickname "the Yugoslavian Beatles". 

On this anthology you will find all the anthems they released during the Seventies (the only big hit missing, "Predaj se srce", is one of their rare weak songs in my humble opinion, so it's not a big deal).

I will eventually post the legendary 1978 album "Modra rijeka" (this anthology includes only its title track) and another anthology for their Sixties era, but I think this one is the best way to start. 
The Seventies represented their best phase, and most of these songs, which were released only as singles at the time, are really catchy and well crafted.

Among my favourites are the tragic ballads "Bacila je sve niz rijeku" and "Ugasila je plamen", the dreamlike gem "Balada", the electronic "Njene oči, usne, ruke", and the beautiful cavalcade "Svijet u kojem živim"
Styles range from progressive rock to soul, from folk to baroque pop, from garage rock to soft pop.

Indexi changed many members over the years, but three of them have been a constant for decades: Davorin Popović (vocals), Slobodan Kovačević (guitars), and Fadil Redžić (bass guitar).
