Another CD in the excellent Greek Archive series, consisting of rare recordings mostly by little known artists, Roza Esenazy being the main big name. Comes with a 36 page booklet, of which 8 are in English, the rest in Greek. The general notes are the same as in Volume 2. Each track is well documented, giving the composer (except where it is unknown), the dromos or makam it is in, who else recorded the song and more.

Unlike Volume 2, there is a fair amount of bouzouki music. Stavros Tzouanakos' bouzouki taximia is a high point for bouzouki fans. I'm told there are also mandolins and laoutos on this one.
