Are you fromMars friend?

It is as asking an Englishman about John Lennon or Mick Jagger, whether there are any CDs from them!!

Or an American about Elvis Priesley or Woody Gathrie!

Try Google and you will find all that you want to know!

In Chania, Studio A and Studio 2000 are good sources of CDs and will have plenty by Xylouris.

You can hear him in several of his songs at http://boutique.info...roducts_id/7110

Julie,
Thanks for that link,it was marvellous.
My only problem now is that I haven't been able to find one certain CD in/on UK sites, although it is available in the USA the cost of postage is almost as much as the CD.
The one that I am looking for is released on the Minos-EMI (?) label and is titled 'Pizitika' (by Nikos Xilouris obviously) and includes that wonderful song that is considered to be the unofficial anthem of Crete.
Anyone got an idea for a UK supplier?
If you look like your passport picture....you probably need the holiday!
