Omega: Omega & III (2-CD)

(MIG Records) 16 tracks, digipack

Over 50 million records sold, LP productions in Hungarian, German and English, tours and festival appearances throughout Europe and Japan, at least 50 cover versions or adaptations of the world hit Gyöngyhajú lány - Omega are Hungary's number one rock export. In 2022, the band will celebrate its 60th stage anniversary, making it one of the longest-serving rock formations in the world.

On St. Nicholas Day, December 06, 2021, singer and founding member Janos Kobor died of the corona virus. Now the Omega albums from the well-known and successful Bacillus phase are coming back to the market original and complete on CD, vinyl and digital. The 1973 LP Omega I was the compilation of songs from Élö and from the album "Omega 5", which was released in the same year in the Eastern Bloc. To fuel sales of this first record by the Hungarian flagship rockers on Peter Hauke's Bacillus label, it was flanked by two singles that included the ballad "Gyöngyhajú lány" in English ("Pearls In Her Hair") and German ("Perlen im Haar").

After a few excursions into psychedelic rock realms, Omega presented itself more catchy again on III at the end of 1974: Nine crisp hard rock numbers, only one exceeded the four-minute mark. For this, Hauke as continuing executive producer and Omega had not only used current material, but also resorted to songs that had already appeared on record in the Hungarian original in 1969: Stormy Fire and Spanish Guitar. In order to appeal to a broader audience in the future, the pieces had been pared down, instrumental solo efforts were kept within limits.

With Stormy Fire, Go On The Spree and Fancy Jeep, the five Hungarians had rather hautrauf rockers in the list, which could also please a glam rock fan who just consumed with enthusiasm the single hits of The Sweet and Slade. The series with reissues of Omega from the catalog of the rock label Bacillus continues.

Omega

OMEGA aus Budapest waren in ihrer Heimat spätestens mit ihrem 1969er-Megahit Gyöngyhajú lány (Mädchen mit dem Perlenhaar), zur Nummer Eins des ungarischen Rock aufgestiegen. Bis heute hat der Titel zahlreiche Musiker zu Coverversionen inspiriert: von Frank Schöbels deutscher Version Schreib es mir in den Sand bis hin zu den Scorpions (White Dove) und Kanye West, der wegen der Verwendung von Samples aus dem Originalsong 2016 von Komponist und Keyboarder Gábor Presser verklagt wurde. Als Presser 1971 die Band verließ und mit Locomotiv GT seine eigene, überaus erfolgreiche Gruppe formierte, sahen viele das Ende von OMEGA gekommen, was sich schnell als Irrtum erwies…
