• nana mouskouri Athens, Berlin, Paris, New York 1959-1962 (CD, £7.95)

    Nana Mouskouri emerged from Greece in the late 50s and went on to become one of the world’s most popular and successful singers, winning some 300 Gold and Platinum discs, and selling more than 350 million records. This compilation anthologises her early career between 1959 and 1962, during which she began to grow into a huge International star. These sides feature Nana singing in Greek, German, French and English, and were recorded variously in Athens, Berlin, Paris and New York. It presents the very best of all her important early festival-winning songs - e.g. ‘Kapou Iparhi Agapi Mou’, ‘To Kiparissaki’, ‘I 8200;Timoria’, ‘Xypna Agapi Mou’ - and hit records, notably ‘Ta Pedia Tou Pirea’, ‘Wei e Rosen Aus Athens’ 8200;(i.e. the million-selling, original, German-language version of her signature song ‘White Rose Of Athens), ‘Ich Schau Den Wei en Wolken Nach’, ‘Einmal Weht Der S dwind Wieder’, ‘Am Horizont Irgendwo’, ‘Ton Adieu’, ‘C’Est Joli La Mer’, ‘Sonata’, ‘Je Reviendrai My Love’, ‘Salvame Dios’, etc. Also included are tracks recorded in New York with Quincy Jones for her celebrated The Girl From Greece Sings LP, notably ‘What Now My Love’ and ‘Till There Was You’. A wildly eclectic body of work, this is perhaps the most comprehensive Nana Mouskouri compilation on the market.
