2009 repress. "Slightly revamped second edition 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, Aphrodites Child, Socrates, and George Romanos. We'll let you decide the argument, for there is no doubt of one thing: that this is tremendous hard-edged psychedelic rock, originally released on LP in a very small quantity by the private Venus label in 1976. As band leader Athanasios Alatas said: Through Nick's musical quest, Mario's sensitivity, Christo's madness, and my thoughts, we create many songs, all characterized by a psychedelic music sound, Greek lyrics, and monumental guitar solos. Since the appearance of our first edition of this album on CD, the excellence of the band has not gone unnoticed. This carefully documented reissue contains the entire Four Levels of Existence LP, 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 bands past written by Alatas, rare photos of the group, as well as lyrics in both Greek and English. This second CD edition is strictly limited to 1,000 copies. As some of you may know by now, the guitar riff from 'Someday in Athens' plays a major role in Jay-Z's single, Run This Town (featuring Rihanna, Kanye West), from his chart-topping The Blueprint 3 album. Just another reason for people to discover the legendary, fuzz-guitar laced work of Four Levels of Existence."
