Tharsin Hri – Tharsin Hri {Greece} [1974] @256 (folk rock)

before posting here..this title travelled all around the world.first, one of my friend cassandra w., from korea send me a song (mera vroxeri) from a various artists comp. then i started keeping track of tharsin day kymatothraysths/greece send me a nudge via msn..he had found the album then isabel from brasil send me helpful information..opa-loka and tao(gr) helped me to tag was a very collective work :) and it worths having & listening this album. "I balanda tis jeraldin" & "Mera Vroxeri" my favourite is the copy/paste: THARSIN HRI means "Needing courage". Back in 1973, that was the name of a quartet of veteran 60's musicians, born in a suburb of Athens, Greece. That same year, THARSIN HRI was one of the groups that participated in the -legendary and very collectable, nowadays- compilation "Pop Festival '73", released by greek Columbia. A year later, the group entered the studio and recorded an album-worth material, for a planned album. This never materialized and now it takes its first official release by ANAZITISI RECORDS, without any additions or corrections. Exactly 30 years later. It contains 10 self-penned tracks and somebody could classify it in the electric folk-rock genre. At the same time hard-rock tinges and soft-psycho elements are still there while some great melodies makes a second listening to be a necessity. All lyrics are in greek. In any way it presents the 70's greek rock scene in all its glory. It's the time for all to see that except "SOCRATES DRUNK THE CONIUM", "POLL", PELOMA BOKIU", "IRAKLIS" & "4 LEVELS OF EXISTENCE", Greece had some more bands which had not the opportunity to present their music (because of various circumstances) back in the early 70' more here one of my favorite..
