The Marcians – Holiday In Greece

Sleeve Notes:

Every year, more and more people are visiting Greece, Cyprus and the associated Greek Islands – and there is no doubt that here they become enchanted with a unique type of music and song that is fast becoming popular all over the world.

The popularity of the modern Greek song and music is due in no small way to the exciting strains of the bouzouki – the Greek national instrument – which, together with harmonised vocals, is exploited to the full on this latest album by The Marcians.

All of the tracks on this record are new and it is probably correct to say that they comprise the major part of the current “Greek Top Twenty” – many visitors to Greece this year will return humming these melodic tunes. If you are unable to take a holiday in that part of the world – add this record to your collection and savour to the full the atmosphere of the Taverna and of a Greek holiday – expertly depicted by The Marcians.

The group comprises, as usual: Andreas Michael (bouzouki/voval), Theodosis Hambi (bouzouki/bass, guitar/vocal), Tanis Chrysostomou (guitar/vocal), Achilleas I Antoniou (percussion), and Freddie Folkes (piano/organ) and their many previous album releases include Hallmark SHM 709, SHM 653 and CHM 678 – without doubt this latest release is another “must”.
