The Orient Express-1969 US

Originally from Europe this band moved to the States. Guy Duris was actually born on the Left Bank in Paris and later met Golesorkhi, who had been decorated by the Shah of Iran for his drumming and was interested in applying Eastern rhythms to Western music, in Iran. They met Bruno Giet, a Belgian pilot and guitarist, in Paris while travelling around Europe.
Soon the three members headed for America and settled in New York's East Village initially but ended up in California where their album was recorded. It's powerful Eastern-influenced psychedelia similar to Kaleidoscope.
Particularly fine examples of their marriage of Eastern and Western music are "Train To Bombay", "A Little Star" and "For A Moment". They did not release any singles on Mainstream.
This is the Unofficial Release of the album on Mainstream Records (S-6117).
