The Last Word On Greek Legends.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Singles Plus (Audio CD)
Best known for launching the careers of '70s synth wizard Vangelis and MOR icon Demis Roussos, Aphrodite's Child were an intruiging blend of traditional Greek music, pop and psychedelia allied to some proggy touches and counter-cultural references.
This Double CD tells you all you need to know: All singles (A-sides & B-sides), both 1st and 2nd albums included in full, as well as selected highlights from their prog rock meisterwork '666'.
This compilation covers all angles, from the keyboard-driven '60s European hits such as 'It's Five O'Clock' & 'End Of The World' to their later proggy meanderings and all points inbetween.
This compilation also contains 3 unreleased tracks, the 1969 studio outtake 'Pathenon' as well as 2 live tracks.
Put simply, if you buy this and '666' you have everything this cult band issued in their career.
There is discographical information, picture sleeve photos and even European chart stats to boot.
Definitive and indispensible, recommended to fans of obscure European psychedelia. Try it.
