Description

Conclusion of the successful four-part series with the re-releases of the Hungarian cult rockers Omega on the German Bacillus label. Taking the successful LP TIME ROBBER as a quality standard, GAMMAPOLIS could compete easily. The compositions of the group around singer Jànos Kòbor had become more melancholic, the bittersweet melodies mellifluous. This was especially true for the seven-minute opener "Dawn In The City" ("Hajnal a város felett"), the title song "Gammapolis", and "Silver Rain" ("Ezüst es 337;").

The live album "Live At Kisstadion" (1979) is legendary. There may be concert documents from Omega that radiate more rock'n'roll, probably there are also a few recordings with better sound. But ÉLÖ OMEGA KISSTADION '79 / LIVE AT KISSTADION '79 is still at the top of the fan list today: The song selection is excellent, the performance gigantic, the atmosphere at Budapest's Kisstadion on September 8 and 9, 1979, sensational - and Omega were at the absolute peak of their popularity in their homeland after the best seller GAMMAPOLIS.

Bacillus/Bellaphon did not want to miss this major event and released the magnificently designed double album titled LIVE AT THE KISSTADION in the same year to the German market.

As Omega was on tour with the Hobo Blues Band at the time, they had extremely accomplished musicians in the audience every night, which the Hungarian flagship rockers took advantage of for the live recordings. On "High On The Starway" Omega brought the Hobo Blues Band guitarists József Törös, Egon Póka and János Szénich on stage, and together they let off twelve minutes of rock fireworks.
