Collage is a Polish progressive rock band formed in 1985. The original lineup of the group was Mirek Gil (guitars), Wojtek Szadkowski (drums), Jarek Wajk (vocals), Jurek Barczuk (guitar), Przemek Zawadzki (bass), Pawel Zajaczkowski (keys), and Ania Milewska (keys). Eventually Wajk left the group, being replaced by Jarek Majka. Majka also did not stay very long, though, being replaced by Tomek Rozycki. Rozycki was the singer for the group when they recorded their first album, Basnie, in 1990. After recording the album, but prior to the tour, Rozycki left the group. They recruited Zbyszek Bieniak to replace him. In the never-ending game of musical chairs of vocalists, Bieniak left just two years later. For a while that year, Wajk returned to the fold, but again, he would not stay long. In fact, by the next year, only Szadkowski and Gil remained. They were joined by Piotr "Mintay" Witkowski (bass), Krzysztof Palczewski (keys), and Robert Amirian (vocals). The group recorded a John Lennon tribute album called Nine Songs of John Lennon. In 1994, they released their next disc, Moonshine. The following year saw the release of Changes, which was a compilation of old unreleased demos. As another year came, so did another Collage album. This time it was Safe.
