...Blues For You (Blues pro Tebe); Golem; Those Were the Times I Used to Live (Jó, to jsem ještě žil); Friends (Kamarádi); A Countryside Full of Darkness (Krajina posedlá tmou); A Song of Dew (Píseň o rose); Why Don't People Like Each Other (Proč se lidi nemaj rádi); Vagabond Singers (Toulavý zpěváci); The Three Aunts (Tři tety), Hang Out the Flags (Vyvěste fangle). "Each of these tunes brings back a memory. Well, it could hardly be otherwise since those were the times I started to write about popular music, and the songs by the two Jiří's of Semafor were the best there were," says the musical publicist Jiří Černý in the preface to this album.
Apart from the arrangement for voice and piano with available versions for voice in E flat, B flat and C, there exists also a score for solo piano.
