November 1973
The Greek Rebellion

These are the voices of students who were murdered. There is nothing left but grief and their message for a lasting fight.
Αθηνα Νοεμβρης 1973 τραγουδια λευτεριας
produced and arranged in cooperation CCS-Recording Studio

This is a 1973 unofficial edition of 'Τα Τραγούδια Του Αγώνα' issued originally by Polydor in 1971 during Theodorakis exile. This was repressed from Minos in 1974, after his return to Greece, with different artwork and Greek only lettering. This edition was sold abroad by Greek communists to collect funds to help the resistance in Greece, while the record was banned there by the Junta.
