CD Reviews

One of the Best Voices in Greece...
Thanos TP | Athens, Greece | 06/20/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Giwrgos is actually something like Greek History in the area of music... This album is a great collection of some of his best songs ... It's definetively one of his best albums!"
You won't find a better introduction to modern Greek music
Thomas Tosh | Marietta, GA USA | 01/07/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is an extremely accessible album of excellent songs. Kudos to Tropical Music for translating all of the lyrics and providing a highly informational set of CD liner notes.

Here is the translation to "Voyage to Cythera" (Taxidi sta Kythira)"

A sick heart which finds no remedy...in forgetting,
fades away in the frost, in the north wind,
far away in foreign parts,
waiting always for the moment to return;
The ship will appear in the harbor,
a sea-bird in our dreams.
You've been touched once more by the ice
and the lonliness of the world;
How can you heal the old wound deep in your soul?
Waiting always for the moment to return;
The ship will appear in the harbor,
a sea-bird in our dreams.

Dalaras sets such high standards that, by the measure of nearly every other artist, this would be 5 stars. However, there are even better CDs from him. (His is the talent that comes but once every several generations.)"
