AllMusic Review by

EMI's huge Demotic Anthology was a treasury and it's wonderful to see a CD version starting. These were not village recordings but very fine performances by professionals close to the roots, with traditional backings. Among those splendidly present are singers Iota Lidia, Rosa Abatsi, Yoryos Nakos (superb, underrated), Papasideres, and clarinetists Karakostas and Malliaras.
