AllMusic Review by

Nineteen selections by this rembetika star commemorate her 40 years as a renowned singer. The sound is very good, so these must be recent, instead of vintage, recordings. Compared to her more impassioned early songs the material is a little on the light and delicate side, but even if this CD doesn't persuade you to make a marathon run to the bottom of a bottle of ouzo it's still a great rembetika without the scratches and grit. It is an important contribution to the small world of authentic Greek music on CD.
