4 Levels of Existence, The - The 4 Levels of Existence

SKU 05-LION604
Very good (although not as great as hyped) Greek psychedelic album. Despite it being the middle 70's, I guess it might as well have been 8 years earlier, because this really captures a late 60's vibe... "The first ever official CD reissue of an album that many people consider to be the best Greek psychedelic album ever recorded, a belief that would mean that the Four Levels of Existence LP would supersede albums by artists like Axis, Aphrodite's Child, Socrates, and George Romanos. We'll let you decide the argument, for of one thing there is no doubt -- that this is tremendous, hard edged psychedelic/progressive material, originally released in a very small quantity by the private Venus label from 1976. As band leader Athanasios Alatas said: 'Through Nick's musical quest, Mario's sensitivity, Christos's madness, and my thoughts, we create many songs, all characterized by a psychedelic music sound, Greek lyrics, and monumental guitar solos.' This carefully documented reissue contains the entire Four Levels of Existence LP (its reissue debut) -- the only recordings they ever made. A twenty-four page booklet includes historical background on the Greek music scene of the early 1970s, details of the band's past written by Alatas, rare photos of the group, as well as lyrics to all the songs in both Greek and English. This CD edition is very strictly limited to 1,000 copies."
