LP + 7"

ARLP 70-14-7 ARLP 70-14-7

Exact reissue of the second Poll album, originally issued in 1972. "Original 12-page full-colored comic book, gatefold cover plus extra 4-pages insert with photos/memorabilia/lyrics (in Greek and English) attached inside the comic book, high quality card, 180 gram vinyl. POLL formed in 1971. Moving from hippie-rock to electric folk-rock they managed to get themselves in the top ranks of the Greek '70s rock pantheon. Both of their albums (originally released on Polydor) contain well-structured songs with lyrics of high sensitivity. Acoustic, electric and 12-string guitars, organ, piano, percussion and drums along with a lot of harmonies from the male and female vocalists. But also the covers of their albums were amazing and inventive!!!! The first one "Anthrope" (1971) had a flaxen bag -- like the peasants' knapsacks -- as a cover and included a poster and a lyrics booklet. The second, same-titled one (1972), was recorded at the same time that the band was ready to split. Inside its gatefold cover there was a 12-page comic book where the 4 members of the group were "superheroes." The story of the comic (made by Kostas Tournas himself) was describing the short life of the POLL, from their birth till their final recordings. Just after the split, Kostas Tournas released his magnus opus "Aperanta Chorafia" and some months later, Stavros Logaridis presented "Akritas." Two of the best Greek rock albums ever. Both of them have already been re-released by ANAZITISI Records. These POLL official reissues, are from the master tapes and have the same covers as the original ones. Anthrope will contain the first POLL single (1971) while S/T will contain their second one (1972). As usual, 180 gram vinyl."
