Fantastic topic, Vasilia, and your posts are amazing! I like all of those songs. :) Tatavla keyfi, what a band...



One of most popular dance tunes of the 60s in Greece, Yiati Thes Na Fighis, was based on an older Turkish song. First sung in Greek by Yiota Lydia with lyrics by Kostas Virvos and "composed" by the singer's husband Stratis Attalides, three other versions are also presented here: a Greek American recording by Betty Daskalaki accompanied by two of the greatest instrumentalists of Greek music, Tassos Halkias on clarinet and Bebis Stergiou on bouzouki; a Turkish version recorded in Athens with words to fit the occasion by Ali Ugurlu and first up, Candan Ercetin's recent mixed Turkish Greek recording.



This well known Turkish song was very popular among Anatolian Greeks and Armenians. It was recorded with Greek lyrics in 1960 by the popular laika duet of Manolis Angelopoulos and Yiota Lydia. The two Turkish versions presented here were both recorded in Greece - the first in 1960 by Ali Ugurlu as part of a series of 45 RPMs issued by RCA Victor and Olympic with Greek Anatolian musicians. The second Turksih version is a collaboration CD between the Turkish singer Dilek Koc and various Greek musicians produced by Music Corner in Athens. The second Greek version is a recording by the former Ethnic Folk Arts Center of NY of the Greek Pontian Papadopoulos Family Orchestra. Lazaros Papadopulos was at first a zurna player and then a clarinet player. His roots are among the former Pontian communities of the Siva/Sevastia region.


One of the most oft recorded tunes in the early 20th centuries among Greeks was the Turkish song Mendilimin Yesili better known as Aman Doktor. It was especially favored by Greek immigrants to America who recorded it many times. Two Greek American recordings are included here, a very early one by Amalia Baka from Yanina, Epirus and a later one by Virginia Mangidou from Istanbul. Other American reocrdings not included are two by Marika Papagika, two by Giorgos Katsaros and one in Turkish by Tom Stathis (Stathiades) from Kirk Kilise (Saranda Ekklisies) now Kirklareli. The first Turkish recording on this upload is sung by the Armenian, Bogos Kirecciyan. It was recorded in Istanbul and released on the Balkan Record Label in NYC , circa 1953. The second Turkish recording is by Ali Ugurlu who recorded dozens of songs in Athens in the early 1960s. Included also are two "folk" versions - one, played on zurna and daouli is used to accompany the dance "Seryiani" from the region of Nigrita in Macedonia; and the other, also from Macedonia, is from the village of Krini. This is the only version in Greek I know of whose lyrics are different from the usual ones about needing a doctor to cure an uncurable love pain.


Tin Patrida'm Ehasa and Ben Seni Sevduğumi (sung by Beren btw!)
Bana sakın söyleme hayatta kalamayacağımı
"sen benim felaketimden kaçarken o bana sahip çıktı.
ne kadar aşağılık bir adam olursa olsun; yaptığının bedelini ödemeye
göze aldı.
senin gibi kaçıp gitmedi...!♥♥

Also, Vivi or Vasilia, can you answer this? I think this is an Greek song originally.. post the name if you recognize it. (Haykıracak nefesim, kalmasa bile)
