Phoenix - Culegătorul de melci

"Omul 36/80" (The man 36/80) is a rock opera written by Phoenix in the fall-winter of 1968. The meaning of the title is: "36 hours from a man's life in 80 minutes of music".

The main song of the album, Culegătorul de melci had a video made by the Romanian Television in 1969 (first music video for Phoenix and, arguably, Romania).

The opera was never officially released in its initial state. It is recorded on magnetic tapes, in a private collection, and, possibly, in the archives of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty.
