The High Windows
|The High Windows|
|Also known as||HaChalonot HaGvohim
Hahalonot HaGvohim trio was formed at the end of 1966. As composer and vocal arranger, Kraus was the group's moving spirit. The group's debut album, which came out in April 1967, six weeks before the Six-Day War, signaled a new direction in local rock and pop.
The band remained together for only one year. When Einstein left in the wake of a disagreement, Kraus and Josie Katz, then his wife, tried to build up a career in London, but without success.
The band recorded pop music that was very light and catchy. Their songs, which went on to become Israeli classics, include Einech Yechola (You Can't), Kol HaShavua Lach (The Whole Week for You), Ahava Rishona (First Love), Yehezkel (Ezekiel), Chayal Shel Shokolad (Chocolate Soldier), Kama Naim (How Pleasant) and more.
