Various Artists: Greek Electronic Music-2

Reminiscent of the long out of print LP Greek Electronic Music-1 (featuring Michael Adamis, Dmitris Terzakis, Stephanos Vassiliadis, Nikos Mamangakis, Charis Xanthoudakis & Yannis Vlachopolous; get the re-release on Creel Pone) I have put together this ecclectic unofficial follow-up. It contains extremely rare, mostly never before released electronic music by Takis Veliantis, Nikiforos Rotas, Kostas Mantzoros, Giorgios Filippis, Stefanos Vassiliadis, Dimitris Kamarotos & Anestis Logothetis plus a bonus track from Logothetis' super-rare Fantasmata LP. This package should give you a nice overview of Greek Electronic Music, which has unfortunately been totally neglected by the music industry so far. Sincere thanks goes to autov3rs3 which provided most of the tracks (originally contained in an obscure promotional package given away by the Athens Music House).

I love your blog, and wanted to say thanks for your uber-rare shares. I'm writing something about "phantasmic imagination" in music, so Logothetis' Fantasmata is right on my topic! Do you have by any chance something by Francois-Bernard Mache? I had an Erato LP with Kemit, Korwar, and Temes Nevinbur, but I lost it when I moved into another country.

@ Stefan
Thanks for your kind words! I'd LOVE to get my hands onto the Mache LP but didn't manage so far. Heard one of the pieces on radio once, was LOVELY (a lady speaking in African dialect, maybe Xhosa plus birds & harpsichord, what a miture!). Erato is a fantastic label, check out their Jean-Claude Eloy releases (which haven't been released on CD yet either).
