How to launch an album
Came upon this amusing web snippet via Mojo (the magazine that takes itself SERIOUSLY, boys and girls). One of the oddest records in my collection is Aphrodite's Child's 666, a prog/biblical masterpiece of a double album - y'know, the usual stuff: Demis Roussos singing about the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse; Irene Papas having an orgasm for 15minutes etc... and this article describes how Salvador Dali planned to unleash it on the world. Now, the last album launch I went to was for Beth Orton at Ronnie Scott's. Where were the bloody exploding swans at that one, eh?
ps: the album IS a cracker. No self-respecting progger should be without it. But don't listen to it in the dark...
