Forgotten pearl No. 12


TROYKA - Same


A progressive rock trio from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The album was recorded at Round Sound, Edmonton, Alberta. The band took care of the arrangements, words and music themselves. Most of the tracks - "Early Morning", "Life's OK", "Rub-A-Dub-Dub Troyka In A Tub", "Dear Margaret (Malgasia)" and "Troyka Finale" are progressive rock style instrumentals. Another "Rolling Down The Back Road "has a sorta guitar freakout and "Go East Young Man Beautiful Pink Eyes "culminates in a sorta guitar jam. Certainly not for everyone but if guitar-driven instrumentation is your scene this could be for you. Certainly an unusual album. Often compared to Gun and Warpig.

To residentevil2: Thanx for your comment but unfortunately I am not fan of glam rock bands like Blackfoot Sue and you will have to look for their albums somewhere else. I am sure that many blogs are in favorite of such a music and will gladly help you.

Thank you so much for the Troyka.
I wore out my record long ago so I'm overjoyed to see this posting.
Some hometown boys made good.
There is a web-site for Troyka
