ACHTERGROND ** BACKGROUND 

ERIC BURDON & THE ANIMALS: THE TWAIN SHALL MEET
“Take all that and multiply by a factor of at least “10” for 1968’s The Twain Shall Meet which, like Winds Of Change, was helmed by producer Tom Wilson. Sundazed goes stereophonic for this one, while Burdon & Co. go fully widescreen. Recorded in December of ’67, the Monterey Pop Festival afterglow still in full effect for Burdon, it’s got everything its predecessor had—the celebration and the moodiness, the psychedelia and the folk-rock, the recitations and the exhortations, the politics and the personalities—and it is also everything its predecessor was not, namely, it’s focused and it’s powerful.
From the rocking, almost boogie-esque “Closer to the Truth,” which hews close to vintage Animals electric R&B; to the baroque, orchestrally-inclined mini-symphony “Orange and Red Beams”; to the bagpipes, sitar and violin-fueled “All Is One” (itself a credible rock symphony with not-untoward prog ambitions); to the soaring, psychedelic anthem “Sky Pilot,” a masterpiece of atmosphere, composition and arrangement; The Twain Shall Meet succeeds on multiple levels. The latter track, in fact, ranks among the greatest anti-war songs ever, telling the tale of a Vietnam War chaplain counseling his charges prior to their departures into battle where death surely awaits many of them”.

APHRODITE’S CHILD: END OF THE WORLD

“ (…) Let me explain: much of the stuff that the album delves into, such as the prominent use of keyboards (The Moody Blues and Procol Harum did the shit out of that), the exploration of Middle Eastern styles as seen in songs like “The Grass Is No Green” or “The Shepherd And The Moon” (The Beatles), and sappy ballads (maybe fucking everyone in the UK at that time), has been done before, but the defining factor that makes all those elements fresh is the group’s Greek origins. I wouldn’t be able to tell you how it changes anything aside from the vocals (as a side note, Demis Roussos sings a very good English) and perhaps the overall sound, but I’m pretty sure many of the more emotional numbers wouldn’t have worked at all if they were done by Brits.(…) .
Another thing I love about the album is how chaotic it sounds. Many of the songs are packed sonically, and even when there isn’t that much going on, it always seems like they’re playing in the middle of a huge mob, which, in a way, reflects well upon the situation they were in, with the protests in France and all that. That chaotic production also immediately makes itself known on the opening title track: “End Of The World” is one of the most moving psychedelic ballads of the 60’s, with Roussos’ vocals being carried over by the reverberating production, and the song climaxing in two huge emotional explosions only foreshadowed by a huge vocal “EYYIAEYYYYYYEEEEEEEEEEE” before you’re thrown into a symbolic “end of the world”. It gets me every time”
