Without An Opponent
(Ellenfél nélkül)
pop jazz-rock

Enlarge this picture! Without an opponent
This album was released in 1984 and is titled Without an Opponent. Rewrites had to be resorted to, and the general public under the influence of undemanding pop music dumping didn’t really appreciate the “last” work.

The tours were sparse, with the last performance at the "headquarters" in Tabán on May 2, 1987. Then the LGT virtually ceased to exist: "it decides to suspend itself indefinitely, but will not be divided."

Presser, Karácsony and Somló began their solo careers, and Solti drummed for other bands. They sometimes worked together on each other’s records, but Loksi didn’t release more albums for a long time.

Sway yourself!
(Ringasd el magad!)
rock progressive

Enlarge this picture! Sway yourself!
In 1972, LGT's second album, Ringasd el magad, was released. The songs on the album were orchestrated in Budapest, but were recorded at AIR Studios on Oxford Street in London. While the band’s style hasn’t fundamentally changed since the previous album, the sound of the songs still shows a significant improvement. While the Locomotiv GT used almost exclusively electric instruments, Ringasd’s own instrumentation is significantly more complex. Here, too, the songs reflect the influence of several musical styles. Due to the longer, virtuoso instrumental inserts, the opening track of the album, Circus, Without Sheet Music (due to the long, distorted organ solo, this is closest to progressive rock in the usual sense) and could be classified as progressive rock.

The blues-rock effect is shown by the Lincoln Festival blues, I Wait You at noon today and the title Ringasd yourself. The Lincoln Festival blues is the band’s first instrumental recording; Address in Lincoln, United Kingdom, 26-29 May 1972 refers to the Great Western Express Festival held between, where LGT was the only performer from the continent.

The version of Ringasd yourself heard here is not the same as Bummm! with the versions on the album and Imaginary Report from an American Pop Festival because it’s largely instrumental and barely longer than a minute. A special blend of blues-rock and Japanese music is the song The Garden of Nothing: the quiet, vibraphone-accompanied sections are connected by a loud, harder-sounding chorus. The Hungarian meaning of “mite kudasai” repeated at the end of the chorus: please look. The unusual sound is probably also due to the fact that LGT was one of the performers at the 1971 Tokyo World Popular Song Festival.

My love for the elegiac Serenade, if it were the first song of the ensemble, which Gábor Presser performed alone, only with piano accompaniment; it’s like I and I Go to Ever Higher and Locomotiv GT V. Melodic pop rock can be categorized as The Prison of Love and Don't Dizzy. An interesting highlight is the country-sounding Cuckoo watch, which sounds in a purely acoustic orchestration, “disguised” as a spontaneous performance.
Ringasd itself was the band's last album with Károly Frenreisz, who broke up in January 1973 and founded Skorpió the same year. The album was also released in 1973 in Czechoslovakia by the Supraphon, CS Hifi Club and MHV Pepita. The cover was the same as the Hungarian edition, but the song titles and information were in Czech.

Tamás Barta - vocals, electric, acoustic and slide guitar, banjo
Károly Frenreisz - vocals, Fender bass guitar, soprano and tenor saxophone, flute, oboe
József Laux - Ludwig drums, percussion
Gábor Presser - vocals, Hammond organ, piano piano, bass piano, vibraphone, marimba, sound generator

Enlarge this picture! Recorded in July 1973, LGT’s 3rd album, Bummm, finally brought out what everyone was expecting from the band. To do this, however, had to come to the realization that the real star, the great individual in a good sense, was not Barta (with his virtuoso guitar playing); not even the newly joined Tamás Somló with his former Omega and then Non Stop membership, with his fantastic individual voice, movement and playing; and not Laux's impressive play on the drums, but the real secret is a musician who rolls over the keyboard, is very full-bodied, with glasses and an unusually rich voice, who is none other than Gábor Presser! On this disc we find a longer version of the song Ring Yourself, the lyric of the Blue Woman, the Come-Come Out on the Hillside joke, Ours here is the confession of space. Together, then, the new Big Four and added the verses of Anna Adamis.

This was the band's first album played by Tamás Somló and the last to be released before Tamás Barta left.

Tamás Barta - of electric, acoustic and slide guitar, harmonica
József Laux - drums, percussion, motorcycle
Gábor Presser - vocals, piano, Fender piano
Tamás Somló - vocals, bass, alto saxophone
"Shango Ray" Dely - congas, chékere
Adamis Anna - verses
