The first ever official vinyl reissue of these greek legends. Originally released in 1982 by Vertigo this is a very rare album nowadays. Progressive, space rock, psychedelic, byzantine and mid- eastern elements create the ultimate greek '' rock'' album, as many prog- minds around the world declare. The lyrics based on the '' Apocalypse of John'' and the '' Prophecies of Ezekiel'' . No more comments as this is a well- known masterpiece.
But the surprise is the '' GASPAR'' , which accompanies this album. It was a privately pressed 7'' EP, released in 1979 as a limited edition of 1000 copies and it had been distributed by the band through their gigs. Nowadays, it's an ultra rarity and almost impossible to find a copy. It contains 4 tracks, all self- penned and sung in English and it's closer to the late 60's – early 70's psychedelic music than to the '' Armageddon's'' space progressivism. It has never been rereleased in any format.
This is an official reissue, licenced by UNIVERSAL Music, Greece. From the master- tapes. Exact reproduction of the gatefold cover and the Vertigo labels. Includes extra 2- pages insert with photos and the reproduction of an original full- coloured poster which announces the just- released (!!!) album by Vertigo back in 1981.
Yet, the set contains the ULTRA RARE, 4- tracks, 7'' EP '' Gaspar'' , made by the band in 1979. With its original B/ W picture sleeve, this 7'' re- release is licenced by P.L.J Band members. 500 copies. PVC protective outersleeve. 180gr as usual.
