In my opinion (and this will perhaps sound like too much) this is the greatest honour anyone has made to Hadjidakis!
The greatest tenor of our time spent time and much effort to sing exquisetly these small masterpieces in flawless greek (I was blown away! I expected some horror, his greek accent is much better than Nana Mouschouri!) he is amazing here!
And this went unnoticed, meanwhile we consider huge compliments to the greatest greek musician some discs of his songs distorted by Konstantinos Beta or Raining Pleasure, or retrospectives in greek tele-tavernas where obsolete 70 year old ex-singers or actors scream "stou Digeni ta Kastra" and can't even remember the lyrics!
Thank you so much Rolando for this!
