Akritas (Ακρίτας) “Akritas” 1973 Greek Prog,Psych Acid Rock, Polydor Records


Akritas (Ακρίτας) “Akritas” 1973 ultra rare Greek Prog,Psych Acid Rock,Experimental Polydor Records
full


Perhaps the most ambitious Greek progressive album. Akritas formed in late 1972 by ex-Poll, Stavros Logarides and ex-Bourboulia, Aris Tasoulis. This 1973 concept release is full of complex multi-instrumental rhythmic patterns and musical textures. Psychospace guitars, baroque organs, jazz-piano tunes, thunderous drumming, swirling sound-effects and soaring vocals. Mixing the finest moments of Spring, Gracious, Arcadium, Dr.Z, ELP, Ossana, Canterbury music scene, Amon Duul II, Frank Zappa, greek traditional music with their own unique and uncomparable stigma! The greek lyrics to Akritas are written by Costas Ferris, responsible for Aphrodite’s Child masterwork, “666”. This is its’ first vinyl reissue since 1973. LP + 7", 180gr German pressing, heavy gtf laminated cover, 2 pages insert (30x50) with story, lyrics, photos, in English……


 One of the best record from greece without any doubt! This power trio managed to do what I think it has to be done in every possible way: rock hard, show the influence of your music traditions, elaborate the balance between strong and light melodies and captivate the listener. 
Try not to be surprise with the begning of the album, it will pass fast, so fast, that when you see it, the keyboards is leading you into outer space and the vocalist deliver you INSIDE the music. Its acid, but not psychdelic; its melodic, but not repetitive, evoques the past but in a futuristic manner. The cover of the album is probably the best depiction of the music. 

With only one album, Akritas is another piece of "what could have been" in music that deserves the 5 stars....by GKR....................



The band lived in the shadows of Aphrodites Child and got a modest success with this album. They were a three piece band with a guitarist as a guest musician. The linup was keyboards, bass, drums and some very good vocals. The vocals was in their mother-tongue. 

The lack off success is most due to the complex music they dished up with on this half an hour long album. Very complex music in fact and not easy to understand. The music is clearly eclectic prog with a lot of influences from both jazz, folk and avant-garde. 

The vocals and a lot of the music here reminds me about Area. Which is the best comparison I can find. But Akritas took avant-garde a step further than Area did. Despite of the eclectic nature of the music, there are still a couple of tender melody lines here. 

The end result is a good album which should appeal to anyone into eclectic prog. I like this album a lot. Check it out.



” The album that outshone all others in 1973(A huge call, but this album has attracted this sort of praise from MANY other prog fanatics, and reviewers.), was without any doubt the only one by AKRITAS, which moves within an unpredictable experimental progressive direction. The many elements from the Greek traditional folk music, especially in guitar playing, the unusual and excellent compositions, and the intense improvisation put the record in the first line of importance.(They’re not wrong there!) The principal composer of the group was Stavros Logaridis while the few lyrics were signed by the director Kostas Ferris, who had also written the lyrics for Aphrodite’s Child’s “666” concept double album.






Exceptional Greek mainly instrumental prog from 1973. Multiple instrumental layers, dynamic and effortlessly shifting complex rhythm changes, baroque and traditional Greek folk music elements, excellent musicianship and songwriting throughout. No wonder it is regarded among the best Greek prog ever. Tracks: Invader, Genesis, The Family, Memory, Return, Love, Ego, Song, The Festival, The Miracle, The Dream, Look Both Horse & Green, Conquest & Z Force. 



Για μια ολόκληρη γενιά Μουσικόφιλων και δει οπαδών της «έντεχνης», «εγκεφαλικής» και κατά κόσμον «προοδευτικής» πλευράς της rock που μεγαλώσαμε με αριστοτεχνήματα όπως π.χ. το "The Atom Heart Mother" των Pink Floyd, το «Ακρίτας» είναι εγχώριος σταθμός. Μνημείο ιστορικό για την ντόπια ηλεκτροδοτούμενη Μουσική.

Τρία μόλις χρόνια λοιπόν μετά την κυκλοφορία του προαναφερθέντος αριστουργήματος του βρετανικού κουαρτέτου που απογειωνόταν αργά αλλά σταθερά μετά την αντικατάσταση του αναντικατάστατου Syd Barrett από τον εξίσου μοναδικό David Gilmour, οι συμπατριώτες μας ένωσαν τις δυνάμεις τους με τον πολυπράγμονα σκηνοθέτη Κώστα Φέρρη για να συγγράψουν τούτη τη «Σουίτα Χορού για κουαρτέτο και playback».
Ήμουν πάρα πολύ μικρός όταν κυκλοφόρησε το εν λόγω εγχείρημα ώστε να νιώσω κι εγώ τη δεδηλωμένη έκπληξη των μεγαλυτέρων μου για αυτή την κατακλυσμική «ενηλικίωση» του δεκαεννιάχρονου Σταύρου Λογαρίδη. Λογικότατο. Από τη Γενιά των Λουλουδιών και την ελπιδοφόρα ευφροσύνη που απέπνεαν όσα συνέπραξε με τους θρυλικούς Poll, έπλασε ξάφνου αυτόν τον, πρόσεξε, όχι μεγαλεπήβολο, μα μεγαλειώδη Ηλεκτρικό Εφιάλτη με τους Ακρίτας! Του οποίου το σημαντικότερο προσόν είναι το Όραμα. Ή όπως μου δήλωσε λίγο πριν αναχωρήσει για την Άλλη Πλευρά ο τιτάνιος Joe Zawinul, ηγετική μορφή της αντίστοιχης επανάστασης του Fusion: «το σημαντικότερο όλων όταν θες να λέγεσαι καλλιτέχνης, είναι σε ό,τι δημιουργείς να έχεις συγκεκριμένο concept! (Ελληνιστί, Κεντρική Ιδέα)».
Με συνθετική ραχοκοκκαλιά το δίδυμο Λογαρίδη / Τασούλη λοιπόν, μα ενορχήστρωση που χτίστηκε και από τους τέσσερις συμβαλλόμενους, υπό τη στέγη της κραταιάς πολυεθνικής δισκογραφικής εταιρίας PolyGram, το κουαρτέτο απέφυγε τον ύφαλο του «δήθεν» και συνέγραψε τούτη την ασταμάτητη σουίτα τριαντατριών λεπτών που όχι μόνο δεν κουράζει, μα συντροφεύει στιγμές. Κυρίως μοναχικές. Κείνες που σπανίζουν πλέον, μες την τούρλα του Σαββάτου και τους ιλιγγιώδεις και καθοδηγούμενα αποχαυνωτικούς ρυθμούς της καθημερινότητας. Τις γόνιμες για διαλογισμό και αυτοπαρατήρηση. Αυτές.

Ως εκτελεστές, οι συμβαλλόμενοι αποδίδουν τα αντίστοιχα της φήμης τους για την εποχή. Ο Τσουπάκης οργώνει τα δέρματα σε βαθμό αξιομνημόνευτο ακόμη και σήμερα, που έχει χαθεί η μπάλα της τεχνικής κατάρτισης διεθνώς. Ο Παπαχρήστου ζωγραφίζει έξυπνα, πηγαία, ουσιαστικότατα, χωρίς φλυαρίες. Ο Τασούλης σηκώνει το μεγαλύτερο βάρος της ενορχήστρωσης ως αρχιτέκτονας της απαραίτητης ατμόσφαιρας που χαρίζουν τα πλήκτρα εξ ορισμού. Όσο για τον Λογαρίδη, παρότι κρατά συνετά ρόλο συνοδευτικό ως μπασίστας (ενώ παίζει παπάδες!), οι εύπλαστες, χαμαιλεωντικές ερμηνείες του εν τέλει, τον καθιστούν ηγετικό πέρα από βασικό συνθέτη. 

Στην αυθεντική μορφή βινυλίου η Σουίτα αναγκαστικά χωρίζεται στα δυο, αλλά εκεί τα δεκατρία της μέρη δύσκολα διακρίνονται με το μάτι. Στην επανέκδοση του άλμπουμ από την Polydor σε CD το 1994, όμως, το άκουσμα δεν διαταράσσεται, μα παραμένει μονοκόμματο ως track one.

Στη διεύθυνση παραγωγής βρίσκουμε εδώ τον Κώστα Φασόλη και μηχανικοί ήχου είναι δυο ιερά τέρατα της ηχομηχανικής στη χώρα μας: Γιώργος Κωσταντόπουλος και Γιάννης Σμυρναίος. Ο πρώτος ηχογράφησε όλο το έργο και ο δεύτερος το «Ζέτα Ζωρζέτα». Στον Σμυρναίο μάλιστα είχα την απίστευτη τύχη να υπάρξω αργότερα «μαθητευόμενος» για ένα Καλοκαίρι στα ιστορικά στούντιο της Columbia στον Περισσό, όταν έψαχνα κι εγώ το δικό μου δρόμο ως έφηβος. Τα στούντιο όπου ηχογραφήθηκε τούτο το μικρό αριστούργημα μαζί με αμέτρητα ακόμη της Ελληνικής Δισκογραφίας. Τα στούντιο που σήμερα όμως μοιάζουν βομβαρδισμένα, σκέτος σκουπιδότοπος, σαν τις ψυχές των εκάστοτε εκλεγμένων, «πολιτισμένων» ηγετών μας που όμως φανερώνουν δυστυχώς και τη δική μας συλλογική συνείδηση αφού τους εκλέγουμε... Ξέφυγα; Κι όμως, δεν ξέφυγα καθόλου από το «θέμα», αφού το θέμα αυτό καθ' αυτό στο «Ακρίτας» του Καζαντζάκη μα και αυτού εδώ είναι η Αφύπνιση, και εν προκειμένω η Καλλιτεχνική. 
Αναμενόμενο λοιπόν ο ήχος παρά τα σαράντα(!) χρόνια απόστασής μας σήμερα να στέκει αξιοπρεπέστατος και διαχρονικός.

Για κάθε δισκοθήκη που θέλει να λέγεται ενημερωμένη στην εγχώρια μουσική παραγωγή απαρχής των ηχογραφήσεων, ελληνόφωνων και μη, τούτο το διαμάντι κρίνεται απαραίτητο. ...by... Χρήστο Κισατζεκιάν,........



Akritas were a Greek progressive rock band who released this one S/T album in their rather short active period. The album is mostly instrumental and there are no lengthy epic tracks in this record. Some of the tracks are extremely short but they fit between the other songs quite well I think. This is one of those albums which works best as a totality so there's no need for choosing any standout tracks. The instrumental work is pretty solid but nothing exceptional. 

This Greek progressive rock classic gets three stars from me. It's a decent effort overall but nothing very unique I think. The album is worth a listen if you're a fan of symphonic prog but I've never considered this one as a personal favourite of mine.....by....CooperBolan ......


Οι Ακρίτας σχηματίστηκαν στα τέλη του 1972 από τον τραγουδιστή, μπασίστα και κιθαρίστα Σταύρο Λογαρίδη, πρώην μέλος της flower power / pop / folk μπάντας Poll, τον ντράμερ drummer Γιώργο Τσουπάκη (ο οποίος έπαιξε με τον Πάνο Δράκο τη δεκαετία του ‘80) και τον κημπορντίστα Άρη Τασούλη (πρώην Μπουρμπούλια, Δέσποινα Γλέζου). 

Οι Ακρίτας κυκλοφόρησαν το μοναδικό τους δίσκο το 1973 σε συνεργασία με τον Δήμο Παπαχρήστου που παίζει ηλεκτρική κιθάρα. Το “Ακρίτας” είναι ένα μοναδικό concept άλμπουμ. Τους στίχους έγραψε ο σκηνοθέτης Κώστας Φέρρης, ο οποίος είχε επίσης γράψει τους στίχους για το τρίτο άλμπουμ των Aphrodite’s Child, το σπουδαίο “666”. Η μουσική είναι κατά κύριο λόγο συμφωνικό προοδευτικό ροκ με επιρροές κυρίως από ELP και Yes, jazz-rock αυτοσχεδιασμούς και παραδοσιακά ελληνικά στοιχεία. 

Δυστυχώς οι Ακρίτας διαλύθηκαν λίγο μετά την κυκλοφορία του δίσκου τους. Ο δίσκος “Ακρίτας” θεωρείται ένα διαμάντι του ευρωπαϊκού underground progressive rock και αναζητείται από συλλέκτες prog rock βινυλίων παγκοσμίως.


 Stavros Logaridis was the leader of this band. He was previously in the band POLL which was a very good greek flower power band with hippy and romantic lyrics and some elements of greek folk music, the greek Crosby, Stills & Nash perhaps. (The two other main members were Kostas Tournas and Robert Williams. Kostas Tournas made an excellent prog-folk record called "Aperanta Horafia" (Endless Fields) with greek lyrics - worth checking out. After that he continued with a nice Ziggy Stardust-like album and then recorded many albums of average pop-rock and ballads)
When POLL disbanded Logaridis wanted to create something more complex so he formed Akritas. The only album ever released is in my opinion a great prog album especially for 70's Greece where imported records were hard to get, and there were no concerts of foreign bands so musians were based mostly on their own inspiration and the Greek tradition. Not as folky as POLL but still with a Greek flavor it reminds me of early Yes without, unfortunately, the technical skills to back it up. Although divided into small songs, it is meant as a single piece concept album though the (greek) lyrics do not focus on a particular story. It is worth noticing that the lyrics were provided by Kostas Ferris who also wrote the lyrics for Aphrodite's Cdild - 666. If the band was more daring they could have surely developed their very good ideas and melodies further. Anyway, it is an above average quality album and I would like to award 3+ stars but since that is not possible I have to go to 3.

After the indifference of the public, Akritas disbanded and Logaridis released more commercial rock music trying to appeal to the mass audience. He rarely succeded although he is still trying... What is interesting though is that in his 1979 album "Manoula Ellas" (Mother Greece) he included an instrumental theme that some years later Vangelis used for the main theme of Chariots Of Fire and won the Oscar!! He used it without crediting Logaridis or asking the rights to it and never to this day admitted it is the same theme. However, although differences do exist, those who have listened both (myself included) tend to agree with Logaridis.....by mandrake_gr............

This is kind of a strange album from a band that quietly released it and then disappeared. There aren’t too many Greek progressive bands, and the few I know of are mostly metal, which makes this an even more unusual band.
I know very little about the band, but the album consists largely of very short tracks (most of them around two or three minutes), some instrumental, with lots of rather disjointed keyboards and sporadic but pretty animated electric guitar. The vocals are Greek, or at least I assume they are, and at times the timbre and timing remind me a little of Bad Company or very early Moody Blues. The guitar work is mostly a kind of picking/strumming style, with occasional short blasts of an almost psychedelic nature. The drum and bass work is pretty muffled (pretty poor production), and not all that complex.

For the most part the tracks seem like unfinished samplers of riffs the band starts to develop, but then loses interest in. Some of the rhythms have a little bit of a Mediterranean feel to them with slow irregular patterns and slightly disjointed arrangements, particularly the instrumental “Ta Paidia” and the piano dominated “Tpagodyi”. "Ta Paidia" also has some decent syncopated drums that stand out a bit. Others like “Epietpofh” are heavy on organ, while still others feature acoustic guitar and ethereal keyboards (“To Oneipo”, “Gennheh”). There isn’t really any dominant style here – like I said, this album has more of the feel of a sampler of tunes rather than fully- developed works.

I’d like to know more about these guys, but none of them ever surfaced again as Akritas or in any other band that I’m aware of, and the liner notes on the reissued (but apparently not remastered) CD is in Greek so it offers few clues.

This is an interesting piece to own if you come across it, and I’ve seen it in used record stores on a couple occasions so the CD must not be as rare as the vinyl version probably is. Nothing special, but worth a few spins if you come across it. About 2.6 stars, so I’ll round to three and call it good.

 The early 70's was a very difficult period in Greek history ,politically and socially and this was reflected in the local music scene. I can't stop admiring the people that in these troubled times managed to create progressive or rock music, almost an heroic achievement, regarding the circumstances. And don't forget that Aphrodite's Child, the best and most succesful greek band, left Greece and moved to France to start their carreer. Anyway, Akritas released this album in 1973 and I suppose (I wasn't born yet) that it was a commercial failure, even though singer/bassist Stauros Logarides was very well known from the flower power band POLL. That doesn't mean that it was not a good album, on the contrary, it was a great album in the wrong time and place. It lasts only 33 minutes, most of the 13 tracks are very small but you can find numerous influences from many different styles and genres. From balcan folk and traditional greek scales and grooves to jazzy parts, classical arrangements and psychedelic verses. Everything is happening very fast, keeping the listener in a state of alert and making the album an adventurous journey. All different directions and arrangements are tied together by Logarides' few but wonderful, delicate vocal lines (something like the greek Greg Lake). Lyrics are in greek so I guess very few can understand them but I can assure you that they are very poetic, meaningful and wisely put into the right parts. To conclude, Akritas is a very unique album, doesn' t remind me of anything in particular and I strongly recommend it to the passionate collector ,not only for its folk or historical significance but because of its excellent and wide progressive music.....by Aldebaran_Well.................


Next to Aphrodite’s Child, this is the only 70’s progressive rock band from Greek that I’m aware of. Musically it seems that the band took influences from a lot of different bands. Some parts sounds a little like ELP, while other seems to be influenced by such different artists as Amon Düül II, Rick Wakeman and maybe some Osanna. The tracks varies from quite improvisated to more structured and theme-based. Lots of keyboards in here. A very varied album with several good parts, but personally I don’t think it’s good enough to be called a classic. But its sure a interesting album anyway. 


Stavros Logarides had recorded two albums with Poll while Tasoulis had previously played in Despina Glezou’s backing group. Nothing of their past can be compared to Akritas. Their album is among the top 3 from Greece, a tremendous concoction of complex progressive rock, forming a concept album of the same grandeur as Aphrodite’s Child’s 666 (indeed or De De Lind’s Io Non So Da Dove Vengo). This is music of great ambition with myriads of changes in rhythms and textures much like the best works of Gentle Giant, Frank Zappa and Emerson, Lake & Palmer…


A friend of mine from Greece, big fan of prog, told me that “Akritas” is the best progressive album ever made in his country. After listening to some prog and prog-related Greek bands like PLJ BAND, APOCALYPSIS, PELOMA BOKIOU, PANOS DRACOS, SOCRATES and obvious APHRODITE’S CHILD I completely share his opinion. 
AKRITAS created a unique piece of art, Greek in nature (vocals in Greek, though there are not many vocal parts, Mediterranian tunes throughout the album) and similar to Italian symphonic prog in approach, when lots of musical ideas change each other in a short period of time, making the music always unpredictable. The mood of the whole album slightly reminds me of BALLETTO DI BRONZO’s “Ys” (though I don’t think AKRITAS were familiar with “Ys” back then in 1973), maybe less dark. There are also hints of jazz and some ELP influences. Lots of contrasts, powerful organ chords, propulsive and at times aggresive drums, testful use of synthesizers, interesting guitar passages are the components of this short record. My only complaint is the final part of the album, it seems to me a little crumpled, while I expected some impressive coda.  

A treasure from Greece, by right deserving better recognition. After some hesitations (4 stars + my love to Greece), 5 stars….by….by NotAProghead 


This is without a doubt one of the best recordings to come out of Greece. Released in 1973 this album seems to have far more in common with some of those Italian greats from the same time period than anyone else.This is different but very interesting. Just over 33 minutes in length this album has a psychedelic flavour at times but there’s lots of complexity as well. AKRITAS were a trio of drums, bass and keyboards although the bass player also plays acoustic guitar. A guest lead guitarist was added for this album and it’s so cool to hear the two guitarists playing together.The album cover is stunning ! By the way the man who wrote the lyrics here also did them for APHRODITES CHILD’s “666” record. 
“Invader” opens with drums and synths that pulsate then the guitar comes in lighting it up after a minute. A calm with vocals and piano follows then it kicks back in to end it. Great track. “Genesis” opens with a pastoral sound as a beat with reserved vocals join in.This changes before a minute as the vocalist cries out.This is a moving section full of passion. “The Family” reminds me of POPOL VUH the way the lead guitarist plays while the acoustic guitar is strummed. Drums arrive around 1 ½ minutes. “Memory” is an organ only tune that gets quite powerful at times. “Return” opens with organ as the drums join in and it builds. Piano a minute in replaces the organ. Guitar follows. 

“Love” opens with light keys and drums. Mellow stuff. Bass follows then it kicks in 1 ½ minutes in. Piano over top.The tempo picks up before 3 minutes.Spacey synths late. “Ego” is mainly piano melodies and reserved vocals. “Song” has these gorgeous sounding piano melodies then the drums join in. Great sound. Guitar before 2 minutes. So good. “The Festival” is a piano and drum led track. “The Miracle” is laid back with acoustic guitar,piano and reserved vocals. I like it. “The Dream” opens with vocals that remind me of Italian Prog. Strummed guitar with the lead guitar over top again in that POPOL VUH style. Things get intense late. “Look Both Horse & Green” features piano throughout with other sounds. “Conquest & Z Force” opens with guitar then synths join in followed by reserved vocals. A psychedelic track if i’ve ever heard one. 

An adventerous album from a band who didn’t believe there were any boundries when it came to music. Man the early seventies must have been such an exciting time for both the musician and the music fan…..by Mellotron Storm ….. ......

Well my knowledge about greek music in general is very limited, the obvious artists i knew before discovering PA were Vangelis and Aphrodite`s Child, since then i have been lucky to discover a few other bands, my knowledge is still being limited, but at least i can give my opinion about 2 or 3 more bands, this time Akritas caught my attention. 

I had a little break from writing reviews, actually more than a month which is a lot for me, this album was in my list of albums to review, now i feel that i could share my opinion with you. 

Again back in 1973 when progressive rock movement was at its best and being more and more recognized 8and practised) all over the world, a 3-member band released their eponimus album, sadly as thousands of bands, they dissappeared and never released a second effort, i would have loved to see if they could reach their boiling point. 

This album is pretty short and consist in 13 songs with an average of 2.5 minutes per song, giving us only 33 minutes of very nice music, dont say that it is bad due to their short and not complex songs, i know several 30 minute albums that i personally call masterpieces, this isnt one of them, but anyway it is good. Also, let me tell you that the beginning is not what their music realy is, i mean, the first song starts with a bombastic sound a la ELP, but the direction of the album as a whole is not that, so dont make your choices before listening to all the album. Despite having very short songs, some of them are great and enyojable, with a nice variety of arrangements, and a very nice keys/organ playing, actually none of the members could be named as outstanding or virtuosos, but the music created together is what make this album very nice, the music could be from symph/bombastic, through jazzy and acid, to folkish and very calm,even some spacey notes here and there, so we can listen to different passages here, and if you are strict, probably you would say that the album lacks of an own and clearly defined style. 

I am not familiar with the language here, i think it is Greek and sounds weird but i love bands singing in their own language, also an extra point (at least for me) is that the voclas sound a bit Italian style oriented. 

This time i wont name or review song by song, since they are very short and none of them are outstanding to be mentioned and remarked. So for this record i think a grade of 3 stars could be accurate, because is good but definitely non-essential. Recommendable for fans of obscure bands nad for those who like to discover bands from other countries…..by memowakeman 


Το συγκρότημα Ακρίτας δημιουργήθηκε από τον Σταύρο Λογαρίδη το 1972. 
Μόλις σε ηλικία 19 ετών (γεν. 21 Σεπτεμβρίου 1953 στην Κωνσταντινούπολη), είχε γνωρίσει ήδη την επιτυχία POLL (Κώστας Τουρνάς, Robert Williams, Σταύρος Λογαρίδης και Κώστας Παπαϊωάννου). 

Οι Ακρίτας έπαιζαν progressive rock. 
Κυκλοφόρησαν έναν μοναδικό δίσκο το 1973 και μετά διαλύθηκαν. 
Τα υπόλοιπα μέλη του γκρουπ ήταν ο Γιώργος Τσουπάκης, ο Αρης Τασούληςκαι ο Δήμος Παπαχρήστου. 

Το ομώνυμο άλμπουμ θεωρείται ένα από τα πιο προοδευτικά άλμπουμ όλων των εποχών στον κόσμο. Οι ηχητικές του δομές ισορροπούν ανάμεσα στη δυτική κουλτούρα και στην Ελληνική παράδοση. 

Οι Ακρίτας συνεργάστηκαν live με τα Μπουρμπούλια και τον Βαγγέλη Παπαθανασίου. 
Διαλύθηκαν λίγα χρόνια αργότερα…………
