This is the so far untold story of the first Hungarian jazz-rock band that
played originals and arrangements at an exceptional level. Winkelmayer
József, their multi-instrumentalist leader formed the six piece band to
fulfill his musical dreams. They performed in Hungary for two years then
abroad for another three with great success. Unfortunately they hardly ever
appeared in the media and never made a record. Their debut album now comes
out, 42 years after their formation, featuring on one side the band's jazz,
on the other side its jazz-rock work, featuring Beatles and Chicago covers

Mini, perhaps the longest standing Hungarian progressive rock band, was founded in 1968 and, excluding a period of inactivity in the 80s through the 90s, still exists. Their leader, Török Ádám on his own ensures Mini’s high standards, despite the variations in the sound caused by the numerous changes in the line-up.
After the first few years’ of covering international rhythm and blues and progressive rock hits, Mini gradually developed their own repertoire. By 1972 they were already one of the finest local progressive acts, using the striking combination of the flute, Hammond and bass. It may sound strange, but, compared to other artists, they were quite fortunate to have an opportunity to record in a professional environment. Fruit Pebbles compiles all the fine tracks from this early, classic period. Gatefold sleeve and insert with notes and lyrics.
