Kaveret, Poogy Tales (1973)

Kaveret were– and still are– prog-pop stars in Israel. They met in the IDF and started playing in 1973, putting out this record. “The beginning of something,” someone at some point proclaimed, and the following year saw them representing Israel at the Eurovision contest and touring internationally.

“The Grocery Store” (If you got as much out of Hebrew school as I did, you’ll be happy to know that the song begins slightly after the 4-minute mark.)

I have to say, in circumstances like this it’s a lot nicer to pay $10 on ebay for the original vinyl of this record than to pay $20-some-odd for the CD, released in ’89. It seems inappropriate, somehow, to listen to something like this without a substantive (if dusty) reminder of its yesteryear value. Lord knows what the remaster sounds like, anyway. I really can’t tell how much the world loved Poogy. Can you?
