'Great underground acid folk LP by Greek singer/songwriter (now a film director) Andreas Thomopoulos, who lived in the UK for many years. Recorded at Chalk Farm and released in 1971, by Mushroom Records (Magic Carpet, Simon Finn "Pass The Distance", Second Hand, etc.). This is the second album by Thomopoulos, more acid/folk, more sensitive and more enigmatic than his first singer/songwriter effort ("Songs Of The Street".) Thomopoulos accompanies his melancholic voice with guitars, piano, bouzouki, kalimba and harmonica, and gets support from his colleagues from the same label, members of the band Second Hand (Ken Elliot, George Hart and Kieran O'Connor), helping on organ, bass, violin and drums. The well-known Barbara Thompson guests on flute, Malcolm Budd on sitar, Nick Hoare on kalimba, triangle, Tony Pedroza on electric guitars and Ralphie on bongos. Lyrics are in English (only 'The Stranger' is in Greek - and what a song!!!). A totally vanished album, very rare as an original and a "must" listen!!!' 

'His albums are so rare that only a few hard-core collectors know them. Both contain an exotic Eastern-tinged folk psychedelia and Born Out Of The Tears Of The Sun had notable contributions from three members of Second Hand and Chillum: Hart, Elliot and O'Connor. Thomopoulos later became a film director.' - Dag Erik Asbjornsen/Scented Gardens Of The Mind...............
