That album totally rules! I had a really funny moment with it.
When my mother was growing up in Portugal, my grandmother used to constantly put on Demis Roussos records, to the point that my mom, my aunt, and my uncle all despised the guy. It was a lot of cornball weepy Greek soft pop songs. When my mom grew up, she rediscovered those records and started playing them all the time, so I grew up hearing and despising them too.
In high school I had a major prog rock phase, and I discovered this Aphrodite’s Child album. I thought it was so cool and subversive and weird. I really dug the singer’s range and his totally weird voice.
After having listened to the album many a time (and having my mom complain and ask me to turn that crazy shit off), I was shocked to discover that the singer was the very same Demis Roussos, in the early stages of his career before he went pop!
I remember my mom playing this song a lot. Listening to it now, I can totally hear that Aphrodite’s Child voice in it!
