(The Aphrodites Child album 666 has this admission on the sleeve
"This work was recorded under the influence of "SAHLEP")

Caravan-Nine Feet Underground     
Klaatu-Sir Bodsworth Rugglesby III

The Aphrodites Child album 666 has this admission on the sleeve "This work was recorded under the influence of "SAHLEP". See below for an explanation of this, taken from Henk Engelen's excellent website all about 666: http://www.engelen.demon.nl/666story.htm
 
This controversial double album is a concept work based on a book of Costas Ferris.
The album "666" was  ahead of its time and some of the themes were very unusual.
The compositions are more complex than previous works of Aphrodite's Child and there are extended instrumentals and improvisations.

Gerard Fallec was the "Production Co-ordinator". Unfortunately they forgot to note his name on the sleeve.

Argyris (Silver) Koulouris, was part of the first "Aphrodite's Child" formation, but he didn't make it. When Aphrodite's Child left Greece (1968) Argyris joined the army. When they decided to make "666", Lucas said that now they needed a guitar, and so they remembered Argyris and called him especially.

Giorgio Gomelsky was the first manager of the Rolling Stones and the Yardbirds, as well as the producer of the famous Brian Auger - Julie Driscol record. He was there all the time and he helped a lot.

"This work was recorded under the influence of "SAHLEP".
Sahlep in arabic, salepi in Greek, is an oriental hot, sweet and healthy drink. It has nothing to do with alcohol or any other drugs, but was usually drank by poor people early in the morning, instead of coffee or tea. They wrote this reference, with a Greek sense of humour, meaning "we have better essences, we don't need your drugs".

"The system": the words are: We've got the System, to fuck the System!   It's obviously ironic, as you cannot "fuck" a system by another system! Those lyrics were inspired by Abbie Hoffmann's manifesto "Fuck the System" **.
Irony and sarcasm, are the two keys to understand this peculiar "666"
