  1. Great record ! Thanks for uploading it. All songs are fantastic especially the first two.
    "Petrines Kardies" is my favorite !

  2. A very interesting record. It reflects the Greek rock scene of the 70's after the "jounta" years. These groups had a lot of talent but they never made it as this was the worst period for rock artists in Greece...
