Description
The first-ever compilation of "Xabagies", the nearly forgotten Hawaiian-influenced music of 1930s Greece, focused on the compositions of KOSTAS BEZOS and his ensemble WHITE BIRDS. A world-class slide guitarist, political cartoonist, and sleepless Bohemian, Kostas Bezos created some of the most unique music of any era: surrealist guitar portraits blurring Athens and Honolulu, haunting tropical serenades, wild acoustic orchestras, and heartbreaking steel guitar duets. LP version includes a 28-page booklet with extensive notes by TONY KLEIN and DIMITRI KOURTIS, unpublished photographs, lyrics, obituaries, and a bonus CD containing 18 additional tracks. Mastered from original 78s by MICHAEL GRAVES. Co-released by Olvido Records, edition of 1,000.
