Orpheus - 1967

One of the most unusually-named album artists I've come across while working in the record store was Orpheus on the MGM label. The group was named after a figure in Greek mythology: Orpheus, the chief representative of the arts of song and the lyre, and of great importance in the religious history of Greece. I found the cover intriguing enough to take home and give a listen. Among this album were three other Orpheus albums, which I will post later on. I expected the group to be a strange psychedelic group, but to my surprise, they recorded mostly sunshine-style music...kind of like a mix between a light bubblegum pop sound and 60s folk/harmony. Nevertheless, this album was played quite a few times on my turntable. After acquiring their albums, I have been unable to find other copies of them. From the MGM recording studio to you, I offer you the same experience I once had when I first heard this album.
