Outstanding debut studio disc by this awesome instrumental heavy guitar rock band from the land of Greece featuring the excellent six string skills of axemaster Stavros Papadopoulos on guitar.

Universal Hippies is the musical brain-child and creation of the talented, prolific guitarist named Stavros Papadopoulos.

The score to this beautiful movie (released as All About My Mother in the U.S.) was composed by Alberto Iglesias and recorded with the City of Prague Philharmonic under the production of Lucio Godoy.

“Love Changes – The Anthology, 1972-83,” a first-of-its-kind 2-CD set by Mother’s Finest, considered the premier black rock-and-soul band of the ‘70s and ‘80s. This 37-track collection includes the entire 10-track 1983 LP, “One Mother To Another,” only ever released in Europe and making its worldwide CD debut. In addition, six tracks that were recorded for the group’s first RCA LP (in 1972) and only issued on a now out-of-print US CD in 2010 are also included here along with the team’s four charted singles, recorded for Epic Records during their seven-year tenure with the label, other standouts such as ‘Somebody To Love,’ (produced by Jimmy Iovine) along with ‘U Turn Me On’ and ‘Evolution’ from the 1981 LP, “Iron Age” and key cuts from the group’s three Epic studio albums such as ‘Give You All The Love (Inside Of Me)’ and a cover of the Motown classic, ‘Mickey’s Monkey.’
"…Obwohl es kaum eine dramatische Steigerung, kaum einen lauten, rhythmisch exaltierten Ausbruch gibt und die Musik meist mit gebremster Leidenschaft am Ohr entlangfließt, schmeichelt sie doch auch der Aufmerksamkeit: lyrischversonnene, schön klingende Duette, in Wahrheit jedoch meist begleitete Solostücke für das Saxophon. Im Spiel erkennt man zwei gute Musiker: den Gitarristen und Synthesizer-Spieler Harmssen und den Saxophonisten Jochen Voss, der einen klaren, festen Ton bläst. ~Die Zeit"
