The Magic Of Boney M

The Magic Of Boney M.

Originally Released: 1980
Balkanton BTA 1882

This is the Bulgarian version of The Magic Of Boney M, the first official compilation album. Due to the way that Balkanton, the state owned Bulgarian record label, licensed the album, there are only 16 tracks on the LP - Rasputin, Ma Baker, Gotta Go Home and Mary's Boy Child are missing from the release, and Still I'm Sad has moved from Side 2 to the end of Side 1. Also the cover is a simpler version of the glossy cover used in other parts of Europe, without the slide out record sleeve, forming a picture of the group in the letter M. Otherwise the release is just as the normal European release.

On this album the track lengths are the same as the more usual European release. This is an interesting album for collectors, as it showcases a Boney M release from another part of the world.
