Biography

Tournas had been the leader of Poll, a short-lived group that made two good electric folk rock albums in 1972. He revised some themes written for the second Poll album for Aperanta Choraphia (endless plains) - a major progressive folk-rock opus with no distinction into separate tracks. Kostas Tournas wrote and arranged it for a large orchestra and provided vocals, guitars and keyboards himself. The first minutes move dangerously close to easy listening with Burt Bacharach-like brass and strings, but it soon improves when drifting towards folk-rock during Tournas's relaxed vocals. Later parts visit progressive jazz-rock (with great electric guitar and organ solos) and even psychedelia in a kind of spiralling journey. This is a complex and highly rewarding work, which sounds better on each listening.
