Back due to unprecedented demand, and available for the first time since the original 2012 pressing, Finders Keepers Records are proud to once again present these 22 rare and unreleased vintage tracks from the secret vaults of one of the most enigmatic composers in 60s/70s/80sEuropean cinema, Andrzej Korzynski.

Originally recorded in the best studios in Poland, Italy and France for experimental film, political allegories, lost television shows, sound libraries and radio - these track shave been hidden behind the Iron Curtain on lost master tapes and film reels until now. ‘Secret Enigma’ represents the first ever dedicated anthology of this great composer’s work.

Originally released exactly thirty years ago, Andrzej Korzynski’s unique experiments with jazz, pop, rock, orchestral and electronic music make his name synonymous with the most praised (Andrzej Wajda) and the most provocative (Andrzej Zuławski) Polish filmmakers(counting many more in between). As an early patron ofthe Polish New Wave and a key exponent of the development of conceptual Polish pop music his expansive portfolio has remained commercially unreleased and un travelled (like many of the original socialist era Polish made films) and has yet to find its deserved place next to the work of Ennio Morricone, François de Roubaixand John Barry.

Now enhanced by a renewed interest in vintage art house film and a subculture of open minded music collect or smany Easter European artists, such as Krzysztof Komeda(Poland), Zdenek Liška (Czechoslovakia) and now Andrzej Korzynski, have finally begun to earn their place along side their Central European peers.

For lovers of film music and experimental pop, this debut anthology and appraisal of Korzynski’s work is long overdue, and stylistically, probably never more relevant.
