Great Early Example Of Music Video
5 August 2002 | by sumeriaSee all my reviews

I actualy discovered this movie because of one of my favorite music artists Alec R Costandinos. Crazy tracking this movie down. I have the album and also I am a DJ who spins retro underground disco and the 18 min "Winds Of Change" instrumental track is the track to put in the mix from this LP. When I found the video and got it I was amazed by the way Costandinos' tracks were put to this animated music video. Also, some of the animation resembles alot of Alec's LP cover photos. I can see why Costandinos got involved with this project. If you are not a Costandinos fan or a lover of 70's underground disco music, this film may still be enjoyable to you if you are into animation and myths. I just think that this film should be released again and mixed into stereo. Another film I yet to track down is "Trocadero Bleu Citron" which is another Costandinos music film that I have the LP for. Anyway, thats a bit off the subject. To me, this is an Alec R Costandinos animated music video, solid and recomended if you can track it down, the LP is more rough to track down.
