Shorn of the travelogue gimmick, this is an excellent anthology of music from all over Greece, taken from very recent recordings. Most of the singers and musicians are pro or semi-pro -- but that's been true of all the great EMI anthologies, and back to the days of the early rembetika stars. What's important is that the music is gorgeous (Check out ôIota Veyö from Roumeli!), and very deeply rooted indeed.
