  CD 6: More of the same sort of thing...

This is a very large compilation indeed, and the range of quality in the tracks is also large. There's a lot of good stuff, like Markos Vamvakaris doing Frankosyriani, and Marika Ninou singing Synefiasmeni Kyriaki with Vasilis Tsitsanis. A lot of the good old tracks that are out of copyright, in fact. There's also some quite awful tracks, especially some live recordings of Tsitsanis where he sounds very "tired and emotional" as the saying goes.

One thing I can't knock this 6 CD set for is the price! It is incredibly cheap, see GreekMusic for details. When last I looked this was marked down from 31.90 to 8.50 which almost brings it into "must have" territory! I see they are also selling several other six CD sets at similar prices...
