This group had some commercial success in Greece with their melodic hippie folk-rock full of acoustic guitars, bongos and vocal harmonies. Their first album Anphrope (recorded as a quintet with an unidentified female vocalist) was the best of the two with some tasty fuzz guitars, bouzouki and sitar. While this came out in a sleeve made out of sacking, their second included 12 pages of comics with Poll-members starring as super heroes.

Although I'm not very impressed by early '70s music from Greece I must say that this is a very pleasent album full of nice melodies and a psychedelic vibe all over the place. The album was re-issued on CD in 1994 (Polydor 523 638-2).

The only music I know from Greece is Socrates and a few folk albums,so good to discover other groups.Yesterday olympic flame was in Paris most of time in a bus with 3000 policemen around;strange picture of freedom in France.Tomorrow flame is in SAN FRANCISCO land of all the great music we love.
Have you some problems with Rapidshare?.For me it's the quickest mode of download and easy to download 5,10 or more albums in the same time with premium.
salut jean bernard,
désolé d'utiliser cemoyen pour te parler mais je ne savais pas comment te contacter. Cela fait plusieur fois que je lis des commentaires de toi. Est-ce que tu as par hasard l'album wink des shaggs et si oui peux-tu le partager avec moi? merci d'avance pour ta réponse
Gracias por tu estupendo trabajo, no me canso de visitar tu blog, uno de los mejores.
Desole ami anonyme je n'ai pas ce cd radioactive de 2007.Il est disponible sur amazone.
the problem with rapidshare is that sharebee just don't do an upload anymore. The same problem I've got with massmirror. Further I've seen other bloggers get their files deleted at rapidshare.
i'm listening to this right now, very interesting, i'm sure i'llget back to it often.
by the way, thanks for your comment in my blog about ILLES.
I'm glad to see you DO know the band and totally agree with you.
as soon as i can i'll put more up (tried lately...my slow/bad connection would not permit it!)
I don't remember if I asked you in my old comments a track of BALL"fight for my country"recorded in 1971.The tapestry of delight write the title is on a cd compilation called"jagged time lapse vol2";so if you find one time think at me.Thanks.
I will post the jagged time lapse compilations soon.
very please to read you have the cds.
With so much stuff around the web these days I imagine a lot of people just going past this one...it's in Greek after all...
I'M SO GLAD I STOPPED BY.
I LOVE THIS RECORD!
I've been playing it few times over the last few days:
thanks a lot!
I think this album grows with every listen.
Thanks for your wonderful job, amazing comps!
Hi, the words of the songs talk about love, friendship, peace, flowers, long hair, colours, Jesus Christ and about the hippy generation. Added to the wonderful music, this record represents perfectly the hippy era of the late 60's.
