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.
