Annita Koutsouveli – I Hloi Perimeni / Tiligmeni sto Haos
(The grass is waiting / Surrounded by chaos)
(MINERVA RECORDS MS 2103 – 1971)
This is a top-rare 7” single by cult poet/actress/singer Annita Koutsouveli. Some collectors consider it as one of the weirdest acid-psychedelic records to come out of the Greek rock scene, while others see it as a failed effort of a singer with a not-so-great-voice. Trust your own ears!
Issued in 1971 by “MINERVA” records, it has all it takes to be a cult classic. Strange female voice, singing psych-hippie lyrics (probably her own poems), while in the background the rock band creates a unique acid-rock (with heavy organ+distorted guitar) sound!
You can find some information about Annita Koutsouveli and her art-related activities at several sites on the internet.
