Aphrodite’s Child has today’s almost forgotten track

Greece has rarely bothered the international charts, with the most notable exception being the enormously popular (at one time) Nana Mouskouri…at one time though, they had a band that experienced great success throughout Europe and minor impact in North America known as Aphrodite’s Child…over here they are mostly forgotten other than for the fact that they gave the world the man in the blue jacket in this clip…in later years his hair got longer and his facial hair met in the middle…yes, that sweet voice belongs to none other than Demis Roussos…the voice approximates his appearance in this performance, but later years, with his doubled up bulk, and unkempt head and beard, it always seemed out of place…

 

Greg Simpson

Greg Simpson firmly believes his career in the music industry officially began on March 14, 1965 when a band gave him ten dollars as commission for helping them find a gig. He hasn’t looked back since then and looks forward to celebrating his fiftieth in 2015 with an enormous party paid for by the hundreds of dollars he’s made since then. His career has covered all aspects from radio for many years, and including working for record labels, artists and, since 1992, Canadian Music Week where he programs the radio stream and manages all conference streams and events in real time annually. He also attends half a dozen conferences a year doing research for CMW and is generally accepted as a knowledgeable cat with a few stories to tell. At the root of it all, though, is his undying love for music and musicians.author of ‘Today’s Almost Forgotten Track’
