The first Omega CD, 2003 edition. "Formed in 1962, Omega began releasing singles in 1966 which featured covers of The Rolling Stones, The Hollies and Herman's Hermits as well as their own original material which reflected these and other Western influences. By 1968, they had briefly toured England and released an album on the UK Decca label under the title Omega Red Star From Hungary, which included some of these singles as well as other tracks which were to appear on Trombidas Fredi es Rettenetes Emberek, their first Hungarian release on the government-owned label, Hungaroton. The themes and messages in the songs were typically '60s, about love & peace and had various approaches to the contemporary '60s rock composition, some sounding like Peter, Paul & Mary ('If I Were The Wind') others like early Rolling Stones ('A Girl Hasn't Gone Home') with trippy guitars and the title track even having a ragtime feel with a honky-tonk sounding piano and a horn section. For the most part though, the album is drenched in psychedelia." --Ian Gledhill, Prog Archives
