I've Grown Tired Already/Manic Depression/No Use To Cry Baby/Dedication to Roland Kirk/Hell/Strawberry Fields/Dream About The Dance Of The Flowers/All Right Now/Smiling Phases/GTK Interview 1971
Syrius toured here in Australia during 1970 through to 1971 a long tour they were here for about a year and became an honorary Aussie band they recorded while they were here coming up with the excellent "Devil's Masquerade" released here and in Hungary. They made a number of appearances on GTK and hopefully I've compiled them all here. As far as know the last two tracks were also recorded here but I have no real evidence as to their authenticity only the uploaders say so.
Jackie Orszaczky was the bass player for the band and after the band returned to Hungary he was to return to OZ in 1974 Orszaczky joined experimental group Bakery. He then established a career as a leading musician in the front rank of much of the best jazz, soul, funk and rhythm & blues music created in Australia in the 1970s to the 2000s. He also continued to tour in Hungary, and continued to command crowds of 3,000 to 30,000 people at his annual Budapest concerts.
Orszaczky performed with various groups: The Grandmasters, with partner Tina Harrod; Jump Back Jack; the Godmothers; The Orszaczky Budget Orchestra; and, the Jackie Orszaczky Band.
He was musical director and arranger for the Marcia Hines, and wrote arrangements and orchestrations for The Whitlams, You Am I, Hoodoo Gurus, Tim Finn, Savage Garden, Hoodoo Gurus, Grinspoon and Leonardo's Bride. He also collaborated with Tony Buck, Chris Abrahams, Andrew Robson.
