Latvian psychedelic videos

I’m seeing, people googles for rare psychedelia. Here it is… Things absolutely impossible in Moscow could still happen in (soviet) Latvia. The author of both songs is Imants Kalniņš, a significant latvian composer.

I just wonder where the people took that video from...

I wonder if that Menuets song was ever released. I have an LP by them from the late 70s but it doesn't sound as awesome as this.

There is none sign telling us that song was ever recorded for vinyl. Bands used to record separately for Melodiya and for TV/radio these times.

Hmm, do you know if they released anything during this period, late 60s/early 70s? Maybe some rare ep or something of the sort?

The first their vinyl (LP) was released around 1980 AFAIK. I didn't meet any signs of any earlier release although it would be better if I'm wrong.
