Troyka – Troyka
Genre: Progressive Rock
Deciding their fortunes lay east, they temporarily moved to Montreal, and for the next year or so made waves, playing the Expo 67 Fair and also spending a lot of time in New York. They moved back to Edmonton and Edwards took over on drums.
Now a threesome, and with Lewitski coming up with the clever name 'Roman', they dubbed themselves Troyka (a three-wheeled horse carriage) in honour of their shared Slavic heritage and started playing the prairies. They coninued to do live shows while recording their material in Edwards' own studio his father/manager had built, Round Sound.
In 1970 released them debut and last album "Troyka". The album combines elements of Hard Rock, Psychedelia, Folk, Traditional Ukrainian Music, Progressive Rock, Funk and Even Polish Spoken-Word Bits--all delivered with a sense of humor.
