This odd one-time cooperation under the name Alpha Beta actually consists of a
couple of otherwise familiar artists. First of all Vangelis, and he is credited for
co-writing both "Astral Abuse" and "Who Killed?". Then there's Greek singer Vilma
reportedly was Vangelis' girlfriend at the time. Back in 1967 she made her
own single, also composed by Vangelis. Third is guitarist Argyris 'Silver'
Koulouris, who worked with Vangelis on Aphrodite's Child album "666", and later
on several other occasions. Last but not
least is Giorgio Gomelski, also known for his dealings with the recording and releasing of
both "The Dragon" and "Hypothesis" albums. Why these strange songs were actually released
as a single back then in 1971 we will never know, but we're glad they did !

Although not confirmed in any way, but considering the time and
participating artists, it is most likely that this record was recorded in Europa Sonor
Studio in Paris, where also Aphrodite's Child album "666" was recorded.
