Can someone find this obscure Balkan / Eastern European (?) pop-rock album? All I have to go on is the single track title I remember "Bread and Salt in Your Own Home". The title and song names were in English (translation?) but the lyrics were in .

Do you remember if this was sung by a woman or a man? What instruments can you remember?

Best answer: I think you're thinking of the album "Soup of the Century" by 3 Mustaphas 3 -- who were not actually Eastern European, but a bunch of really talented British "world music" guys who performed as a fictional Balkan family band. The first song on that album, "Bukë E Kripë Në Vatër Tonë / Kalaxhojnë" was translated as "Bread and Salt by Your Own Hearth."
