"In 1992 I had never heard of Nana Mouskouri. At the time I was working for the Voice of America, which had a HUGE record/Cd library. I was dating a guy who had heard of a song called Only Love, but didn't know the artist. After some searching, I came upon the song on this CD, which now ranks as one of my all-time favorites. Nana's voice is so pure and clear, it sends chills up my spine. I saw her in concert at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC several years ago. Phenomenal! The best tracks on this CD are Why Worry, Sweet Surrender, The Rose, Only Love and Every Grain of Sand (written by Bob Dylan. A must for anybody who enjoys classical vocalists!"

"Mention the name Nana Mouskouri, and 9 out of 10 Americans will look at you as though you were an alien, while the 10th person might comment, "Hey, ain't that the lady who wears glasses." Such a shame. "Why Worry" is a first-rate addition to an internationally recognized body of work by one of the most beautiful, pure and powerful voices in the world.We've been saturated by so many "diva" specials on television, that "diva" has lost all meaning. If you put Nana, Celene and Gloria on stage together singing "Missing," Celene and Gloria would surely step down with respect and let Nana take her rightful place."The Rose" showcases Nana's extensive vocal range. The song builds on Nana's whispering voice until it reaches a grand crescendo with full orchestra and an immense female chorus. The pristine DDD recording reveals every nuance.Turn up the stereo and let "Song Of Liberty" push back your walls and raise your roof with a joyous noise. Now you know what "diva" means."
Nothing to worry about!
