Label: MISSISSIPPI

Release date: 08/02/2017

Barcode: 2090504422147

Catalog no.: MRP0000098

Item ID: 442214

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 The 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 blending Athens and Honolulu, haunting tropical serenades, wild acoustic orchestras and heartbreaking steel guitar duets. Included are a 28-page booklet with extensive notes by Tony Klein and Dimitri Kourtis, unpublished photographs, lyrics, obituaries and a bonus CD containing 18 additional tracks.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, this release is limited to 1.000 copies.
