A Jewish organist in London, Abe Orchover, formed a wedding band called the Aristocrats together with his neighborhood friends: Alan Stockman, David Franks and Ray Morris. The band recorded one song produced by the brilliant Joe Meek but his tragic suicide brought about the band's breakup. In the summer of 1968, Stockman and Morris were on holiday in Israel. They met Mussa Maron, a taxi driver, on the beach in Tel Aviv. He told them about his connections in the local music industry and when he realized that they were members of a British rock band he quickly got them to sign one-year management contract based on a weekly salary. Orchover and Franks joined Stockman and Morris, and together with local drummer Nissim Cohen the band chose a new name: Revolver.
In September '69 the Hed Arzi record label released Revolver's only record, which contained two songs: an original song called "Imagine" – a sweet piece of psychedelic rock that sounds like a lost Pink Floyd with Syd Barrett session, alongside their unique adaptation of a cover version of the Beatles' "I'm Down", a combination of Mediterranean, psychedelia and reggae styles. Stan Solomon, lead singer of the Churchills, produced the record. This reissue was produced from the original tape for the first time since it was originally issued in 1969. Revolver's production has become a much-appreciated revival among classic rock and psychedelia music lovers as well as rare Israeli rock record collectors.
