The right kind of political baggage


Too much time is being spent here on the wrong kind of political baggage. So to make partial amends here is the right kind. John Williams and Maria Farandouri recorded their LP of protest songs by Mikis Theodorakis in 1971 while the Greek military junta was still in power. My graphic shows the original LP artwork, a CD transfer - alas with different artwork - is available from Sony Greece. Buy* and take a step towards enlightenment.

* The only option for buying the CD of this classic of the gramophone at a sensible price is to purchase it from Greece. I have found the online shop of Studio 52 in Thessaloniki to be an excellent way of buying Greek CDs.
