Manolis Hiotis (1921-1970) was an incredible bouzouki virtuoso and a great composer with many "timeless" folk songs that are considered as some of the best ever written for bouzouki and voice. With his artistic (and life) partner, Mary Linda, were a very popular duo, with international allure. Hiotis's bouzouki playing was the fastest of all, full of incredible 1/64ths. Mikis Theodorakis, recognizing his unique artistry, used Hiotis in his first great albums. This CD is a happy medley of the 30 most known hits of the unforgettable couple. Bouzouki paradise from a master. A collectors' item in lossless.

Label: ΕΜΙ | 5% recovery record | First release: 1977 | Genre: Greek folk songs, bouzouki

One of the greatest greek albums of all times. Poetry and music of Akis Panou at the top of his inspiration, who declares still "Present" by lifting his hand on the unconventional cover photo. Akis Panou was a master in composing "zeimbekiko" dances and track no 3 with the title "The fool" is considered as one of the most beautiful "zeimbekika" ever composed. The singer, Manolis Mitsias, surpasses himself, with an excellent interpretation of 12 difficult songs. Songs that I've heard hundreds of times and still don't have enough. At the last track, Giorgos Zabetas, a great bouzouki virtuoso, is doing "miracles" with his "penies" (bouzouki improvisations). A superb album from every point of view. Enjoy.
