Józsa Erika & Horváth Károly- Kettõspont (Moiras 002)

The legendary folk duet of Erika Józsa and Károly Horváth were the voice of a generation, pioneers of a musical movement born in Transylvania in the early 1970s. They became the best known and most loved folk singers, touring extensively throughout Romania and Hungary. Erika and Károly formed their duet in 1970 in Nagyvárad, a town of rich cultural traditions and strong Hungarian heritage. Kettõspont (Colon) was their first LP, released in 1978. Later they formed a band, performing and recording under the name of Táltos.

Despite of the high demand, only a few thousand copies were ever pressed, due to Communist political restrictions, making the LP an instant rarity. Under Europe’s most oppressive communist regime, the creation of this record was quite adventurous. The end result, though, is an album that stands the test of time. Kettõspont represents not only the highest quality folk music of the once-flourishing ethnic Hungarian pop scene in Romania, but without any doubt, also a valuable part of Hungarian folk music in general.

Not super fond of the sound quality on this rip. I'm thinking hard about a new rip with a new stylus.
