This is a fantastic two CD compilation from Trikont, that is becoming hard to find. Trikont is a German label, and almost all the notes supplied are in German. In the track list above, I have amended the Germanic transliteration in places, especially names, to the English style.

Open up the CD package, and you get a fine old panorama of what I assume is Smyrna (or Salonica?). Open it further to reveal the two CDs and two booklets packed with photographs of the musicians, very detailed notes (German) for every track, and at the back of the book, shorter notes for every track in English.

Favourite tracks of mine, absolute classics of the genre, include Anestis Delias "Sura kai Mastoura" (Drunk and Stoned) from 1936. and Bagianderas' "Panda me glyko hasisi" (Always with sweet hashish). And there isn't a duff track in the whole compilation. Another "must have" for you!
