Martian Chronicles - Live CD
(Marsbéli krónikák - Live CD)
progressive rock

Enlarge this picture! The fabulous album of Solaris, The Martian Chronicles came out in the spring of 1984. It turned 30 years old in 2014. The occasion of the jubilee, the band made a live first performance of the album at the Bartók Béla concert hall of Palace of Arts (MÜPA) in 26th of October in 2014. Every song of the Martian Chronicles had been played on the concert, moreover in the original version with segments which were not on the bakelite because of the lack of space.

They summoned the two very important and sadly gone founder member of the band, Cziglán István and Tóth Vilmos. István was visualized by M. Kecskés András mime, and Vili in turn with a record (made on the stage of the Palace of Arts earlier), so the band were able to play with their partner who was shown on the beamer.

Live In Los Angeles 1995 (official bootleg) progressive

Enlarge this picture! In 1995 (November) the Solaris was the headliner at the Los Angeles Progfest. Greg Walker invited the band, which has not existed for years. Greg's faith and hope led to success. After six years silence the band started to rehearse and the band had a fantastic gig in L.A. The DVD contains the complete live material of that unforgettable concert. This is an official bootleg from VHS and Umatic recordings.
Bonus: interviews with the band members from 2010.

„It was a dream for me to see Solaris play live as it was for many other people who attended. …Forgotten Group?! Progressive music is timeless and you have more fans throughout the world than you can ever imagine. … Thanks for all your time and efforts in realizing a dream…”

progressive

Enlarge this picture! The long-awaited second part of the ARCHIVE TRILOGY OF SOLARIS with rare and unreleased songs.

NOAB: this more then 20-minute long suite was one of the basic Solaris compositions, which should have been the A-side of the very first Solaris album. The band picked out short pieces of this concept track using the tunes in ’The Martian Chronicles’ and ’Los Angeles 2026’. As we had not even one complete and good recording of this composition this final edited version on this CD was compiled and put together into one from 11 different concert recordings. It was a huge work of Soalris members and this is also one of the reasons why we had to wait for more then 2 years of this album.

Nostradamus - Book of Prophecies
(Nostradamus - Próféciák Könyve)
progressive rock

Enlarge this picture! "We have been interested for long in the 'legend of Nostradamus'.
Of course, not necessarily in the way of believing in it. Morover in such a way as a mystical variation to an important question: how far are we linked to the flow of the time? Indeed, are we separated from time by a wall which cannot be crossed over. This question makes us think because there is no reply. We have drawn from several sources, put the picture together from several elements, that became the historical basis of the album. We handled our sources without any criticism. As if they were true from the very first word to the very last one, though they contradict not only to each other, but many times also to themselves. We have not studied which of them can stand the truth-value. If a gap was found somewhere, we filled it with our own phantasy. We have weaved further the legend. We have simply imagined the thrilling world of "what would be if...".
"We have imagined a monumental, mysterious film. And we composed the music to it. To sequence of pictures that have never existed."

1990 (2CD) progressive rock

Enlarge this picture! 26th February,1990. The group Solaris would be 10 years old today. The reason why they're not, is that they stopped playing music in 1986. During this period they released only one album, entitled 'Marsbéli krónikák'. This new CD was first published in 1990, and it's a brand new version with two bonus tracks and five new musical transmissions added to the suite in the second part of the album. It's published with new cover artwork and the title is written with the original SOLARIS-letters. It consists of four different parts. '1980' - with seven pieces - is a collection of non-released radio recordings. The second part - 'Los Angeles 2026' - is the A-side of their never-published second LP, which lasts more than 23 minutes. 'Éjszakai tárlat' is an almost half-an-hour long suite - sounds interesting, don't you think? - ,and the last part is titled 'A ceremonial concert for the 40th anniversary of the wind up of the band in 2026'. Seven great pieces again. This CD is a great evidence to prove that Solaris was probably the best Hungarian progressive group in its time.

Greg's faith and hope led to success. After six years silence the band started to rehearse and the band had a fantastic gig in L.A. This double CD contains the complete live material of that unforgettable concert. After a long “fight” the Solaris was convinced of putting a brand new song on this CD. The bonus track is a 11:56 minutes long real Solaris sound, just as if it was 15 - 20 years ago. This CD is the first, long awaited “Live” material from one of the most famous Hungarian progressive bands. Finally we can listen to it, we can keep it in our hands. You’ll enjoy it! Buy it!

Martian Chronicles

After releasing two singles ("Solaris" and "Eden/Ellenpont") by 1983 Solaris was ready with this first album, The Martian Chronicles, choosing to base its musical concepts on Ray Bradbury's science fiction story of the same name.
In 1995 on the Progfest (Los Angeles) Solaris was the main event on the first day. They have not played together for years,but the band gave an unforgettable gig for the sympathetic audience.
There are two bonus tracks on this CD, both recorded in 1995.
