Nikos Deja Vu - Socrates Drank The Conium - Mountains

About Yannis Spathas the guitarist:

Spathas' way of playing was characterized by speed, fluency and cleanness, much like Deep Purple's guitar virtuoso Ritchie Blackmore. It is also highly reminiscent of the melodic playing of Tony Iommi, lead guitar of Black Sabbath. Despite his confessed love for Hendrix's music, his musical style, and moreover his touch while playing, reminds one of the great British guitarist Ollie Halsall, during those years playing with Patto and then with John Hiseman's Tempest (where he substituted for Alan Holdsworth in the late 1973). Spathas can be considered one of the most talented, original, unfortunately unknown, guitarists in Europe during the '70s, maybe the most "guitaristic" decade for rock & roll music....
