Recorded between 1907 and 1960, this collection contains the first and the last-the alpha and the omega-of Greek demotika- or folk music. And it is not what you would expect. Remastered from the original 78 rpm discs, this set contains 28 previously unissued recordings made in the cramped, primitive studios of Athens, Greece, New York, NY, and Chicago, IL. Crazed Macedonian bagpipes, keening violins, shiver-inducing zournas and shepherd-pipes are found throughout the two discs. Cover artwork is by legendary underground artist R. Crumb and designed by Grammy winning Susan Archie. Not simply for historians or collectors of long gone sounds, this compilation is intended to push the limits of what we have come to expect of music, its purpose and indeed its origin. You will experience a profound musical transformation immediately upon listening.

This a project that has inspired us more than we could have predicted when we signed on to be its label home: Why The Mountains Are Black (Greek Village Music: 1907-1960).
When most Westerners think of Greek music, they probably picture the rickety, bouzouki-driven dance music showcased in films like My Big Fat Greek Wedding (arguably the most enduring portrayal of today's Greeks in mainstream media), or perhaps, the cheesy balladry of singers like Demis Roussos, the one-time progressive rstar who went on to sell over 60. million albums in the '70s and '80s. The 28 tracks King’s assembled for Why the Mountains Are Black sound nothing like the chirpy, cheery music of those Athenos feta commercials-in fact, it sounds downright inhospitable at times, closer to free jazz or even drone music. The le bouzouki is largely absent, as is any distinguishable melodic patterns, with fiddles, lutes, and thunderous drums kicking up a maelstrom in its stead.
