A great quote in today's on-line Toronto Star in an article about the three official Olympic Games albums: Unity, made up of international pop stars; Phos, featuring Greek songs; and
Harmony, composed of classical tunes
"Phos, with 18 songs set to music by Mikis Theodorakis.......

Now 78, and in uncertain health, Theodorakis best known for his score for the 1964 film,
Zorba The Greek is the Gordon Lightfoot of popular Greek music; wonderfully craggy, a bit long
in the tooth, but still at the soul of the country."
