Heavy Rock single, by the “FANTASTIC”

21 Jul

FOTIS FRAGGIAS and FANTASTIC – ASPRO ALOGO (White Horse) / KORITSI TOU DASOUS (Girl of the Forrest).

(FANTAZIO RECORDS – no number)

This is a very rare private greek single from the mid-seventies.  Both sides have strange intros (A: weird electronics/B:  rain and thunder) that give way to  two excellent organ driven rock tracks, with above-the-average guitar playing and hippie lyrics. The heavy orchestration and the background chorus vocals, help to make the songs sound epic enough to be characterized as psych/progressive.

The cover of the single is a strange triptych, like a gatefold sleeve that wasn’t finally cut and glued…

If it had been properly made it would look like this:

Nikos Varverakis who has written both tracks and plays electric guitar on this single, later (1979) made the ultra-cult disco/erotica lp “DISCO SEX”.
