works of roussos-the're his recording song w/alec cosandinos
"forever and ever" '73,"my only fascination" '74 and best "souvenirs" '75.next costandinos appear in cerrone"love in C

this costandinos continued his works with his band"love and kisses"-some his works been in movie"thank god it's friday" and

WHERE ARE THE GREATEST HITS VOL. 2 & 3

"THIS COMPILATION IS GREAT AS IT CONTAINS THE COMPLETE EXTENDED VERSIONS OVER 15 MINUTES LONG. HOWEVER, THERE ARE STILL MANY OTHER CLASSIC DISCO HITS THAT MR. CONSTANDINOS CREATED DURING THE DISCO ERA (MID TO LATE 70'S). THE TRACKS HERE ARE AMONG HIS EARLY WORK AND BETTER KNOWN. THESE TRACKS WERE ALSO BEAUTIFULLY ARRANGED BY DON RAY AND CONDUCTED BY JEAN CLAUDE PETIT BUT AGAIN IT'S ABOUT TIME THAT THE GREATEST HITS VOL. 2 COMES OUT. I KNOW FOR A FACT THAT MR. CONSTANDINOS HAS ENOUGH MUSIC TO EVEN DO A VOLUME 3 OR EVEN A BOX SET OF 12" SINGLES (A BOX SEX WOULD BE AWESOME) BUT I WOULD SETTLE FOR GREATEST HITS VOLS.2 & 3."
