CD Reviews

One of the fathers of rembetika

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Vamvakaris' songs have became classics and have been sang by many others. If you want to know the roots of Greek urban music from Pireaus buy this CD and and you will play it over and over. The famous songs he wrote include frankosiryiani, ta matoklada sou lamboun, antilaloun i filakes and many others. The singers on the CD include Bithikotis a famous singer of the sixties and seventies.
This CD is a must for any lover of Greek music."

"The compilation contains many of the great songs by Markos Vamvakaris but it is important to remember that the songs are late 1950's - early 1960's remakes of many of his older songs.

As a result you will not be getting the original recordings. However, the remakes cemented these songs as standards of Greek music and are truly inspiring interretations. All in all simply wonderful. These artists modernized some very old songs and made them true standards."
