Czeslaw, often credited just as Nieman, was one of the most important Polish musicians / singers. He is remembered here in the USA for his progressive rock / fusion works of the early 70s, of which this 1972 double set (also released separately at the time) is one of the best and best known, and which features backing by the group SBB! This is the first time that I've seen these on legitimate CD issue.

"In 1969 he changed musical style to progressive rock while recording the monumental album Enigmatic. Niemen played Hammond organ, later mellotron and Moog synthesizer on his records.
In the early 1970s, Niemen recorded three English language albums under the CBS label, two of them (and three more in Poland) with the Silesian band SBB.
With SBB Niemen performed at the Rock & Jazz Now! opening show for the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich sharing the stage with Mahavishnu Orchestra, John McLaughlin and Charles Mingus and subsequently toured with the band of Jack Bruce. In 1974 he recorded Mourner's Rhapsody with Jan Hammer and Rick Laird from Mahavishnu Orchestra. In the seventies, Niemen turned to jazz-rock fusion and electronic music (Katharsis album)."-Wikipedia
