UC102 + UC103, The Greeks Beat Back, Pts. 1 + 2

Hello my friends, here’s a double-feature on Greece in the 60s … don’t expect too much fuzz or Diddley covers, as it seems the Greek groups looked more to Adriano Celentano or Nino Ferrer than to Bo or Chuck, in other words, as Gyro puts it in the notes for his fab Greek Beat Greats-comp “more Zombies than Yardbirds but not bad at all for that”. To avoid overlaps, I’ve left out tracks that have shown up on Shakin' In Athens, Wildworld #4 / Greek Beat Greats (don’t believe Laurent Bigot’s review in the SfS-database), Six Miles From The Cage and the Greece Goes Modern–LP but selected the most interesting tracks from Greek compilations such as "Monterni Rithmi tou 60" (44 LPs in all) and "Oldies But Goldies" (10 LPs). Information on Greek artists is hard to find, if you (like me) don’t read the Greek alphabet and don’t understand a single world, so Google translator did his best. Anyway, you can find some information (in English) at http://www.mygreek.fm/artist. Special thanks go out to http://nakedsides.wordpress.com, http://bluebeatinmysoul.blogspot.com, and to http://rockin-hood.blogspot.com. Great sites, keep on diggin‘ guys! But now let‘s get ready for the Yanka-beat, hope you like it…
