"NANA CHANGES EVERYTHING"

"I have loved listening to Nana Mouskouri ever since I first heard her perform on the old "Tonight Show With Johnny Carson" some years ago. (Johnny Carson introduced me to so many great music artists via his television show.)
The title of the album, "The Very Best Of Nana Mouskouri- Only Love" is not inappropriate nor misguiding. However with the extraordinary number of tracks and performances Ms Mouskouri has recorded as a treasure of her musical talent, it is by no means an exhaustive anthology of "her best". So much of what she sings is "her best"!
"Why Worry" certainly ranks high-up on my list of favorite tracks on this collection. There is no comparison to the excellent delivery she brings to "Even Now"!
"Every Time We Say Goodbye" leaves you never wanting to say goodbye to Nana nor to listening to her "melancholy" musical evocation of how love just tugs and pulls and even tears at our hearts. To hear her vocal accompanied by a true Greek Bouzouki makes the Abba song "I Have A Dream" sound exactly the way you had always imagined and "heard" it to be in your mind. It's a truly "magical" sound.
The title of the first track on this album, "Love Changed Everything" gives us a good description of the musical experience that listening to Nana Mouskouri provides: Nana changes everything . . . and for the better!"
Nana Mouskouri IS the best

"I first became a fan of Nana Mouskouri's singing almost 30 years ago. She does all her songs perfectly, but my favorites are Loving Arms and Even Now, which by the way was NOT written by Barry Manilow - her website shows that someone named Sakel wrote that song. (Barry wrote a song with the same title, but not the song Nana recorded.) If you haven't heard her CD's, start with this one - you'll want to buy all the others."
