Aphrodite’s Child

October 10, 2008

This was the only Greek pop group I was aware of in the 1960s although I’m sure there must have been many more. With the talents of Lucas Sideras, Vangelis Papathanassiou and the unmistakeable vocals of Demis Roussos, Aphrodite’s Child soon developed from the bubblegum pop of “Rain and Tears” in 1968 to the concept album “666” of 1972.

I highly recommend all their stuff. Their last single “Break” is fab. “It’s 5 o’clock” is atmospheric.
