AllMusic Review by

When Quidam's second studio album, Sny Aniolów, came out, the Polish label Rock-Serwis released this CD EP. Despite being designated as the single version, this "Moje Anioly" is exactly the same as the one on the album (at least its Polish version released by Rock-Serwis; the Musea edition has re-recorded vocals in English). "Rhayader/Rhayader Goes to Town" and "Bajkowy" were recorded live on August 23, 1997, at the Proglive '97 festival in Corbigny (France), and are not available elsewhere (instead, Musea included "Ptone" on the two-CD set that documents the event). The first one is a strong but very faithful rendition of two movements from Camel's The Snow Goose suite. Another live version (from a year and a half later) came out on the more widely available Baja Prog: Live in Mexico '97, which in the process reduced the appeal of this EP considerably. Both live tracks feature original flutist Ewa Smarzynska.
