Leonard Cohen - I'm Your Man (1988)





Leonard Norman Cohen CC GOQ (September 21, 1934 – November 7, 2016) was a Canadian singer, songwriter, poet, and novelist. His work explored religion, politics, isolation, sexuality and romantic relationships.[2] Cohen was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He was invested as a Companion of the Order of Canada, the nation's highest civilian honour. In 2011, Cohen received one of the Prince of Asturias Awards for literature and the ninth Glenn Gould Prize.

Cohen pursued a career as a poet and novelist during the 1950s and early 1960s; he did not launch a music career until 1967, at the age of 33. His first album, Songs of Leonard Cohen (1967), was followed by three more albums of folk music: Songs from a Room(1969), Songs of Love and Hate (1971) and New Skin for the Old Ceremony (1974). His 1977 record Death of a Ladies' Man was co-written and produced by Phil Spector, which was a move away from Cohen's previous minimalist sound. In 1979, Cohen returned with the more traditional Recent Songs, which blended his acoustic style with jazz and Oriental and Mediterranean influences. Perhaps Cohen's most famous song, "Hallelujah", was first released on his studio album Various Positions in 1984. I'm Your Man in 1988 marked Cohen's turn to synthesized productions and remains his most popular album. In 1992, Cohen released its follow-up, The Future, which had dark lyrics and references to political and social unrest.

Cohen returned to music in 2001 with the release of Ten New Songs, which was a major hit in Canada and Europe. His 11th album, Dear Heather, followed in 2004. Following a successful string of tours between 2008 and 2013, Cohen released three albums in the final four years of his life: Old Ideas (2012), Popular Problems (2014) and You Want It Darker (2016), the last of which was released three weeks before his death.

I'm Your Man is the eighth studio album by Leonard Cohen,[2] released in 1988. The album marked Cohen's further move to a more modern sound, with many songs having a synth-oriented production.

Ακρογιαλιές δειλινά

Βραδιάζει γύρω κι η νύχτα 
απλώνει σκοτάδι βαθύ 
κορίτσι ξένο σαν ίσκιος 
πλανιέται μονάχο στην γη 

Χωρίς ντροπή, αναζητεί 
τον ήλιο που έχει χαθεί, 
στα σκοτάδια να βρει 

Μπορεί να το 'χουν πλανέψει 
ακρογιαλιές δειλινά 
και σκλαβωμένη για πάντα 
κρατούνε την δόλια καρδιά 

Μπορεί ακόμα μπορεί, 
να έχει πια τρελαθεί
 και τότε ποιος θα ρωτήσει 
να μάθει ποτέ το γιατί

Burning Spear - Marcus Garvey (1975)





Winston Rodney OD (born 1 March 1945), better known by the stage name Burning Spear, is a Jamaican roots reggaevocalist and musician. Burning Spear is a Rastafarian and one of the most influential and long-standing roots artists to emerge from the 1970s


Marcus Garvey is the third album by the reggae group Burning Spear, released in 1975 on Island Records, ILPS 9377. The album is named after the Jamaican National Hero and Rastafari movement prophet Marcus Garvey. A dub version of it was released four months later as Garvey's Ghost.

This was the first album by the group recorded for Island Records, whose founder Chris Blackwell had been instrumental in breaking Jamaican reggae artists Jimmy Cliff, Toots and the Maytals, and Bob Marley to an international audience. It was produced by Lawrence Lindo, better known by his handle taken from the assassin of Lee Harvey Oswald, Jack Ruby. Apparently, upon their first meeting, Lindo and vocalist Winston Rodney realized the opening track to this album, "Marcus Garvey." The backing musicians, whom Lindo named the Black Disciples, had been assembled from the Soul Syndicate and the Wailers.
On July 27, 2010, this album was remastered and released by Universal's Hip-O Records reissue imprint in tandem with the dub version on one compact disc.

The album was listed in the 1999 book The Rough Guide: Reggae: 100 Essential CDs

Manfred Mann - The five faces of (U.k 1964)




Manfred Mann were an English rock band, formed in London in 1962. The group were named after their keyboardist Manfred Mann, who later led the successful 1970s group Manfred Mann's Earth Band. The band had two different lead vocalists during their period of success, Paul Jones from 1962 to 1966, and Mike d'Abo from 1966 to 1969.

Manfred Mann were regularly in the UK charts in the 1960s. Three of the band's most successful singles, "Do Wah Diddy Diddy", "Pretty Flamingo" and "Mighty Quinn", topped the UK Singles Chart. They were the first southern-England-based group to top the US Billboard Hot 100 during the British invasion

The Five Faces of Manfred Mann
is the debut British and second American studio album by Manfred Mann. It was first released in the United Kingdom on 11 September 1964 by His Master's Voice. In late October/early November, the album was released in Canada by Capitol Records.The Canadian track listing was almost the same as the UK version, except it included the hit "Do Wah Diddy Diddy" instead of "I've Got My Mojo Working". The record has been called "one of the great blues-based British invasion albums; it's a hot, rocking record that benefits from some virtuoso playing as well"

Trees - On The Shore (U.k) (1970)




Trees was a British folk rock band recording and touring throughout 1969, 1970 and 1971, reforming briefly to continue performing throughout 1972. Although the group met with little commercial success in their time, the reputation of the band has grown over the years, and underwent a renaissance in 2007 following Gnarls Barkley's sampling of the track Geordie (from Trees’ second album On The Shore) on the title track of their multi-million selling album St. Elsewhere.

On the Shore is the second, and final, album by British folk rock band Trees. It was recorded in October 1970, and released in January 1971 on CBS Records (64168). It was later released on CD by the BGO label.
Sleeve design by Hipgnosis. The cover photographs were taken at The Hill Garden, part of Inverforth House, Hampstead Heath in North West London, designed by landscape architect Thomas Mawson. The model in the photo was Katie Meehan, daughter of Tony Meehan from The Shadows.

Quicksilver Messenger service - Happy Trails (1969)




Quicksilver Messenger Service (sometimes credited as simply Quicksilver) is an American psychedelic rock band formed in 1965 in San Francisco. The band achieved wide popularity in the San Francisco Bay Area and through their recordings,[3] with psychedelic rock enthusiasts around the globe, and several of their albums ranked in the Top 30 of the Billboard Pop charts. They were part of the new wave of album-oriented bands, achieving renown and popularity despite an almost complete lack of success with their singles (apart from "Fresh Air", which reached number 49 in 1970).[4] Though not as commercially successful as contemporaries Jefferson Airplaneand the Grateful Dead, Quicksilver was integral to the beginnings of their genre. With their jazz and classical influences and a strong folk background, the band attempted to create an individual, innovative sound.[5] Music historian Colin Larkin wrote: "Of all the bands that came out of the San Francisco area during the late '60s, Quicksilver typified most the style, attitude and sound of that era."[6]

Member Dino Valenti drew heavily on musical influences he picked up during the folk revival of his formative musical years. The style he developed from these sources is evident in Quicksilver Messenger Service's swing rhythms and twanging guitar sounds.[7] After many years, the band has attempted to reform despite the deaths of several members. In 2009, original members Gary Duncan and David Freiberg toured as the Quicksilver Messenger Service, using various backing musicians.


Happy Trails is the second album of the American band Quicksilver Messenger Service. Most of the album was recorded from two performances at the Fillmore East and Fillmore West, although it is not clear which parts were recorded at which Fillmore. The record was released by Capitol Records in stereo.

David Crosby - If I Could Only Remember My Name (1971)






David Van Cortlandt Crosby (born August 14, 1941) is an American singer-songwriter. In addition to his solo career, he was a founding member of both the Byrds and Crosby, Stills & Nash.

Crosby joined the Byrds in 1964. The band gave Bob Dylan his first number one hit in April 1965 with "Mr. Tambourine Man." Crosby appeared on the Byrds' first five albums, and produced the original lineup's 1973 reunion album. In 1967 he joined Buffalo Springfieldon stage at the Monterey Pop Festival, which contributed to his dismissal from the Byrds. He subsequently formed Crosby, Stills & Nashin 1968 with Stephen Stills (of Buffalo Springfield) and Graham Nash of the Hollies. After the release of their debut album CSN won the Grammy Award for Best New Artist of 1969. Neil Young joined the group for live appearances, their second concert being Woodstock, before recording their second album Déjà Vu. Meant to be a group that could collaborate freely, Crosby and Nash recorded three gold albums in the 1970s, while the core trio of CSN remained active from 1976 until 2016. CSNY reunions took place in each decade from the 1970s through the 2000s.


If I Could Only Remember My Name is the debut solo album by David Crosby, released in February 1971 on Atlantic Records. It was one of four high-profile albums released by each member of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young in the wake of their chart-topping Déjà Vualbum (along with Stephen Stills, Songs for Beginners, and After the Gold Rush). It peaked at #12 on the Billboard 200 and earned a RIAA gold certification for selling over 500,000 copies in the United States.

The album gained new recognition in 2010 when it was listed second on the "Top 10 Pop Albums of All Time" as published in the Vatican City newspaper L'Osservatore Romano

Stephen Ray Vaughan- In Step (1989)





Stephen Ray Vaughan (October 3, 1954 – August 27, 1990) was an American musician, singer, songwriter, and record producer, and one of the most influential guitarists in the revival of blues in the 1980s. He is commonly referred to as one of the greatest guitar players of all time.

Vaughan was born and raised in Dallas, Texas. He began playing guitar at the age of seven, inspired by his older brother Jimmie. He dropped out of high school in 1971 and moved to Austin the following year. He played gigs with numerous bands, earning a spot in Marc Benno's band the Nightcrawlers and later with Denny Freeman in the Cobras, with whom he continued to work through late 1977. He then formed his own group Triple Threat Revue, but he renamed them Double Trouble after hiring drummer Chris Layton and bassist Tommy Shannon. He gained fame after his performance at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 1982, and his debut studio album Texas Flood charted at number 38 in 1983, a commercially successful release that sold over half a million copies. Vaughan headlined concert tours with Jeff Beck in 1989 and Joe Cocker in 1990. He died in a helicopter crash on August 27, 1990 at the age of 35.

Vaughan received several music awards during his lifetime and posthumously. In 1983, readers of Guitar Player voted him Best New Talent and Best Electric Blues Guitar Player. In 1984, the Blues Foundation named him Entertainer of the Year and Blues Instrumentalist of the Year, and in 1987, Performance Magazine honored him with Rhythm and Blues Act of the Year. He won six Grammy Awards and ten Austin Music Awards and was inducted posthumously into the Blues Hall of Fame in 2000 and the Musicians Hall of Fame in 2014. Rolling Stone ranked him as the 12th greatest guitarist of all time.[2] In 2015, Vaughan and Double Trouble were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame



In Step
is the fourth studio album by Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble released in 1989. The title In Step can be seen as referring to Vaughan's new-found sobriety, following the years of drug and alcohol use that eventually led Vaughan into rehabilitation. It was also Vaughan's final album with Double Trouble. In 1990, he recorded a collaboration album with his brother, Jimmie Vaughan, called Family Style; later that year, Stevie Ray Vaughan died in a helicopter crash.

The album received universal acclaim. Critics called it Vaughan’s best album, with some even saying it was one of the best albums of the year. It received praise for solidifying Vaughan’s unique style, his consistent songwriting, and his clean and sweet sounding guitar playing, while some criticized it for some songs (mainly Tightrope and Wall of Denial) sounding too personal, and too unrelatable to the general public.

Marianne Faithfull - Dangerous Acquaintances (1981)






Marianne Evelyn Gabriel Faithfull
(born 29 December 1946) is an English singer, songwriter, and actress. She achieved popularity in the 1960s with the release of her hit single "As Tears Go By" and became one of the lead female artists during the British Invasion in the United States.

Dangerous Acquaintances
is the eighth studio album by English singer Marianne Faithfull. It was released on 1 September 1981 by Island Records. The album was seen by reviewers as a disappointing follow-up to Faithfull's Broken English, as the album trades the angry and controversial alternative new wave arrangements of the previous one for a more mainstream rock texture, using over a dozen session musicians and, for some, giving a certain anonymous feel to the songs. The title is a reference to the Pierre Choderlos de Laclos 1782 novel Les Liaisons dangereuses.

The main singles of the album were "Intrigue", penned by the singer's then-husband, Ben Brierley, and "For Beauty's Sake", written by Faithfull and Steve Winwood.

Σπυριδούλα-Νάυλον Ντέφια και Ψόφια Κέφια (1982) Τα Υπόγεια Ρεύματα - Παραλογές (1995) Αγάπη Πιο Κρύα Από Το Θάνατο (1997)






Οι Σπυριδούλα είναι ελληνικό ροκ συγκρότημα που δημιουργήθηκε τη δεκαετία του '70. Συνεργάστηκαν με τον Παύλο Σιδηρόπουλο με τον οποίο κυκλοφόρησαν το άλμπουμ Φλου, έναν δίσκο που θεωρείται από τους σημαντικότερους στην ιστορία του ελληνόφωνου ροκ.


Ίστορικό

Σχηματισμος

Οι Σπυριδούλα σχηματίστηκαν το Νοέμβριο του 1977 από τους Βασίλη Σπυρόπουλο (κιθάρα), τον αδερφό του Νίκο (κιθάρα) τον Αντρέα Μουζακίτη (ντραμς), τον Μάκη Μπλαζή (μπάσο) και τους Κώστα Κουρεμένο και Γιώργο Κοτσμανίδη στα φωνητικά. Οι αδερφοί Σπυρόπουλοι είχαν συνεργαστεί ήδη με τον Μουζακίτη στο συγκρότημα Last Barricade. Το όνομα το πρότεινε ο συνεργάτης τους Γιώργος Γαϊτάνος, εμπνευσμένος από την ιστορία της Σπυριδούλας Ράπτη,θύματος ενός εγκλήματος που είχε σοκάρει την κοινή γνώμη το 1956. Η 12χρονη οικιακή βοηθός είχε βασανιστεί επί 36 ώρες με ηλεκτρικό σίδερο από το ανδρόγυνο που την μεγάλωνε. Οι Σπυριδούλα ξεκίνησαν συναυλιες όπου έπαιζαν κατά κύριο λόγο διασκευές από Rolling Stones, Lou Reed, Velvet Underground καθώς και μπλουζ και γρήγορα τράβηξε το ενδιαφέρον του σχετικού κοινού. Το 1978 είχαν ήδη αποχωρήσει οι Κουρεμένος, Κοτσμανίδης και Μπλαζής, με τον τελευταίο να αντικαθίσταται από τον Τόλη Μαστρόκαλο ενώ λίγο μετά ο Μουζακίτης αντικαταστάθηκε από τον Τάσο Φωτοδήμο.


Νάυλον Ντέφια και Ψόφια Κέφια και διάλυση


Μετά από μια σύντομη περίοδο ζωντανών εμφανίσεων, το συγκρότημα μπήκε στη περιπέτεια των ανακατατάξεων και απ' τις τάξεις του πέρασαν αρκετοί μουσικοί, όπως ο Νίκος Ζιώγαλας (τραγούδι), ο Πάνος Κατσιμίχας (φυσαρμόνικα, τραγούδι), ο Bees (ντραμς) κ.α. Το 1982 βρίσκουμε τους αδελφούς Σπυρόπουλου μαζί με την Μελίνα Καρακώστα (μπάσο), τον Άκη Περδίκη (ντραμς) και τον Παύλο Βακατάτση (τραγούδι, πλήκτρα), με τους οποίους ηχογράφησαν το άλμπουμ Νάυλον Ντέφια Και Ψόφια Κέφια, που έτυχε θερμής ανταπόκρισης από το κοινο, το δε ομώνυμο τραγούδι συγκαταλέγεται ανάμεσα στα δημοφιλέστερα τραγούδια-σταθμούς της ελληνόφωνης ροκ δισκογραφίας. Τρία χρόνια μετά κι αφού ο Νίκος Δόικας είχε αντικαταστήσει την Μελίνα Καρακώστα, το σχήμα διάλυσε και οι Σπυρόπουλοι έφτιαξαν στα τέλη του '86 την Συμμορία.

Τα Υπόγεια Ρεύματα είναι ελληνικό ροκ συγκρότημα που σχηματίστηκε το 1992 στην Αθήνα.

Ιστορία

Όταν ο Κώστας Κοντοβάς (πλήκτρα), ο Γρηγόρης Κλιούμης (κιθάρα και φωνή), ο Γιάννης Κυριακός (μπάσο), ο Δημήτρης Αργύρης (κιθάρα) και ο Παναγιώτης Μεταλληνός (τύμπανα), βρέθηκαν στο ίδιο περιβάλλον, θέλησαν να δημιουργήσουν την "κοινή τους μουσική", τραγούδια που θα εκφράζουν (θεματικά και αισθητικά) τον καθένα τους. Έτυχε ένας από το συγκρότημα, ο Κώστας Κοντοβάς, να δουλεύει στον Μελωδία FM ως ηχολήπτης. Έτσι έγιναν οι πρώτες γνωριμίες με πρόσωπα του χώρου[1]. Μια ηχογραφημένη πρόβα τους σε κασέτα, στο ραδιοφωνικό σταθμό Τικ-Τακ της Καλλιθέας, έφτασε στ' αυτιά του Δημήτρη Χατζόπουλου, με αποτέλεσμα να κυκλοφορήσει ο πρώτος τους δίσκος Ο Μάγος Κοιτάζει την Πόλη, το φθινόπωρο του 1994 από την Έβδομη Διάσταση. Στην ομάδα προστίθεται ο Μάρκος Τσατσούλης (φλάουτο, κρουστά και φωνητικά). Σε λιγότερο από ένα χρόνο το συγκρότημα υπογράφει συμβόλαιο με την FM Records, και στα τέλη του 1995 κυκλοφορεί τις Παραλογές με 11 καινούργια τραγούδια.

Οι «ΑΓΑΠΗ ΠΙΟ ΚΡΥΑ ΑΠΟ ΤΟ ΘΑΝΑΤΟ» δημιουργήθηκαν το 1990.
Εκαναν στο διάστημα της 10ετίας λίγες επιλεγμένες συναυλίες. Ο 1ος τους δίσκος ήταν 1 7″ που κυκλοφόρησε το 1995. Ο μεγάλος μοναδικός μέχρι σήμερα ομώνυμος δίσκος τους βγήκε το 1997.

Χρησιμοποιούν κιθάρες, σαξόφωνο και drum machine και καθόλου μπάσο! Τα τραγούδια τους με τον καταλυτικό ρυθμό που δίνει η σύγκρουση του σαξόφωνου με τις κολασμένες κιθάρες θα μπορούσε να χαρακτηριστεί acid rock!

Οι ευαίσθητοι, λυρικοί και αφαιρετικοί συχνά στίχοι τους σε συνδυασμό με την πρωτοποριακή μουσική, δημιουργούν ίσως το πιο απρόβλεπτο μουσικό αποτέλεσμα στον χώρο του ελληνικού ροκ.

Bob Marley And The Wailers - Catch A Fire (1973)





Bob Marley and the Wailers
were a Jamaican reggae band led by Bob Marley. It developed from the earlier ska vocal group, the Wailers, created by Marley with Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer in 1963. By late 1963 singers Junior Braithwaite, Beverley Kelso, and Cherry Smith had joined on. By the early 1970s, Marley and Bunny Wailer had learned to play some instruments and brothers Aston "Family Man" Barrett (bass) and Carlton Barrett (drums), had joined the band. After Bunny Wailer and Peter Tosh left the band in 1974, Marley began touring with new band members. His new backing band included the Barrett brothers, Junior Marvin and Al Anderson on lead guitar, Tyrone Downie and Earl "Wya" Lindo on keyboards, and Alvin "Seeco" Patterson on percussion. The "I Threes", consisting of Judy Mowatt, Marcia Griffiths, and Marley's wife, Rita, provided backing vocals.

Hypnos 69 - Legacy (2010)



History


The history of Hypnos 69 began at the end of the '80s, when Steve and Dave Houtmeyers played in a political punk oriented band called Massagraf. The band had several line-ups, although Steve and Dave were the only steady members. They released one 7" EP in 1992 and split up that same year. At that time Steve was active with Belgian grindcore pioneers Agathocles (band). Agathocles and Dave started anarcho punk band Intestinal Disease. Both bands toured Europe and South America.[citation needed] By 1994 Steve Houtmeyers decided to quit Agathocles and form his own, more '70s rock oriented band called Starfall. It included Dave Houtmeyers on drums and Tom Vanlaer on bass. By 1995 after doing some local shows, they changed their name to Hypnos 69.

In 2000 the first Hypnos 69 release appeared on the Belgian RocknRollRadio record label entitled Wherever Time has shared it's Trust" on blue 10" EP vinyl. The first full-length CD appeared also on RocknRollRadio in 2002 entitled Timeline Traveller and contains bad ass heavy '70s rock. The band toured with this CD in Germany, The Netherlands, France and Czech Republic.

When the band presented their second full CD Promise of a New Moon on R³ in 2003, Steven Marx was introduced into Hypnos. From being a guest musician he rapidly became a part of the live-set and a new member of the band.

In October 2004 the band decided to make a deal with the German record label ElektroHasch. Their third full CD The Intrigue of Perception, along with a split 10" EP with Germany's Colour Haze was released in November 2004.

In 2006, after extended touring in Scandinavia, Germany, the Netherlands, France, Switzerland, Austria and Italy, the band recorded The Eclectic Measure. The artwork was done by Italian graphic artists Malleus. By November 2006, the band was on hold, due to some personal issues in the band, but after six months decided to tour again. In Autumn 2007 Hypnos 69 toured to promote The Eclectic Measure throughout Europe.

Alice Cooper - Lace And Whiskey (1977)





Alice Cooper (born Vincent Damon Furnier; February 4, 1948) is an American singer, songwriter, and actor whose career spans over 50 years. With his distinctive raspy voice and a stage show that features guillotines, electric chairs, fake blood, deadly snakes, baby dolls, and dueling swords, Cooper is considered by music journalists and peers alike to be "The Godfather of Shock Rock". He has drawn equally from horror films, vaudeville, and garage rock to pioneer a macabre and theatrical brand of rock designed to shock people.

Originating in Phoenix, Arizona, in the late 1960s after he moved to Detroit, Michigan, "Alice Cooper" was originally a band consisting of Furnier on vocals and harmonica, Glen Buxton on lead guitar, Michael Bruce on rhythm guitar, Dennis Dunaway on bass guitar, and Neal Smith on drums. The original Alice Cooper band released its first album in 1969. They broke into the international music mainstream with the 1971 hit song "I'm Eighteen" from their third studio album Love It to Death. The band reached their commercial peak in 1973 with their sixth studio album Billion Dollar Babies.[3] In 2011, the original Alice Cooper band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.[4]

Furnier adopted the band's name as his own name in the 1970s and began a solo career with the 1975 concept album Welcome to My Nightmare. Expanding from his Detroit rock roots, Cooper has experimented with a number of musical styles, including art rock, hard rock, heavy metal, new waveglam metal, and industrial rock.

Θάνος Μικρούτσικος - Πολιτικά τραγούδια (1975)





Βιογραφία

Γεννήθηκε στις 13 Απριλίου 1947 στην Πάτρα. Είναι μεγαλύτερος αδελφός του μουσικού και τηλεπαρουσιαστή Ανδρέα Μικρούτσικου. Ο Θάνος Μικρούτσικος ξεκίνησε τις μουσικές σπουδές του σε μικρή ηλικία στη Φιλαρμονική Εταιρεία Πατρών και στο Ελληνικό Ωδείο (πιάνο, θεωρία, αρμονία). Ακολούθησαν οι σπουδές και η αποφοίτησή του από το μαθηματικό τμήμα του Πανεπιστημίου Αθηνών, ενώ παράλληλα μελέτησε αρμονία, αντίστιξη, φούγκα και σύνθεση με τον καθηγητή-συνθέτη Γ.Α. Παπαϊωάννου.

Άρχισε να συνθέτει στα τέλη της δεκαετίας του 1960, αλλά επίσημα εμφανίστηκε το 1975, με το δίσκο «Πολιτικά τραγούδια». Συνέχισε την πορεία του ως στρατευμένος δημιουργός μελοποιώντας Γιάννη Ρίτσο, Βλαντίμιρ Μαγιακόφσκι, Μάνο Ελευθερίου, Μπέρτολτ Μπρεχτ και άλλους. Οι δίσκοι του «Καντάτα για τη Μακρόνησο», «Φουέντε Οβεχούνα», «Τροπάρια για Φονιάδες», «Μουσική πράξη στον Μπρεχτ», είναι χαρακτηριστικοί του ριζοσπαστικού κλίματος των πρώτων μεταπολιτευτικών χρόνων. Ειδικά η «Καντάτα για τη Μακρόνησο», έργο πρωτοποριακό για την εποχή του, όπου ο συνθέτης πειραματίζεται πάνω στην ατονική μουσική, γνώρισε διακρίσεις σε διεθνή φεστιβάλ και συνοδεύτηκε από την ερμηνεία της Μαρίας Δημητριάδη.

Στη συνέχεια, με τον δίσκο «Σταυρός Του Νότου», σε ποίηση Νίκου Καββαδία, ανοίχτηκε σε ευρύτερη τραγουδιστική θεματική, υπηρετώντας παράλληλα το θέατρο, καθώς και την ηλεκτρονική και ατονική μουσική. Με την ίδια αγάπη πάντα για τον έμμετρο λόγο συνεχίζει να μελοποιεί Γιάννη Ρίτσο, Άλκη Αλκαίο, Κώστα Τριπολίτη, Φρανσουά Βιγιόν, Κωνσταντίνο Καβάφη και άλλους. Ακόμα, έχει παρουσιάσει την όπερα «Ελένη» και έχει μελοποιήσει παραμύθια.

Συνεργάστηκε με κορυφαίες ερμηνεύτριες όπως η Μαρία Δημητριάδη, η Χάρις Αλεξίου και η Ιταλίδα Μίλβα, αλλά και μεγάλους ερμηνευτές όπως ο Μανώλης Μητσιάς, Δημήτρης Μητροπάνος, Βασίλης Παπακωνσταντίνου, Χρήστος Θηβαίος, Γιάννης Κούτραςκαι πολλούς ακόμα.
