Difficult to choose only 15 but I'll try. The jacket ? Also very difficult. That will be for later on.
I'll be back.
I already have created a CD which has some of my best songs, especially for relaxing or sleeping. The songs are the following:
1)Νύχτα (by Stavros Xarhakos)
2)Ο μέτοικος (live)
3)Χρυσοπράσινο Φύλλο (live)
4)Όμορφη και παράξενη πατρίδα
7)Ήταν πέντε ήταν έξι
8)Τώρα που θα φύγεις
9)Ένας κόμπος η χαρά μου (from "Το Ελληνικό πρόσωπο του Γιώργου Νταλάρα")
10)Τα βεγγαλικά σου μάτια (original)
11)Να με θυμάσαι (Mann Auditorium)
12)Ο ουρανός φεύγει βαρύς (Mann Auditorium)
13)Shai (Mann Auditorium)
14)Παλίρροια (from Συγνώμη για την ’μυνα)
15)Σαν τον Οδυσσέα
16)Ερωτικό κάλεσμα (live with Haris and Panos Katsimihas)
[Total : 57 minutes, 29 seconds]
I used no special jacket for this cd, but usually when I make a Dalaras's CD I put a photo of Dalaras holding a guitar
I made one 2 weeks ago. It's not very representative as it reflects those songs that were my favorites at the time. The list may change but I will make another one really soon. So, the one I made, here it goes:
Γύρω γύρω στην πλατεία
Δώστε μου μια ταυτότητα
Ήταν πέντε ήταν έξι
Η άσφαλτος που τρέχει
Καϋμέ του κόσμου
Πρωινό τσιγάρο (με τη Χάρις Αλεξίου)
A board de l' Aspasia
I will survive (the well known song in its REM version, live and totally unplugged. I know, no Dalaras here)
Όσο βαρούν τα σίδερα
Both Astron and Soc's selections were really very good ones.After trying,I've seen that it's a really very difficult thing,to choose only 15 songs of Dalaras.But at last I could form my own list.What do you think about it?
1)THEOS AN INE
2)ITAN PENTE,ITAN EXI
4)AN YPARCHI LOGOS
5)TA VEGALIKA SOU MATIA
7)MES TOY BOSPOROU TA STENA
8)MI MOU THIMONIS MATIA MOU
10)TELO NA TA PO
11)TA BASANA DEN LEGONTAI
13)PENTE HRONIA DIKASMENOS
15)KI AN SE TELO
Here are the songs for my personal CD.
1. Theos an einai
2. Mi mou thumoneis
3. To mellon
5. Taksidi sta Kithira
6. Mia vradia sto Leverkusen
7. Theos Kurios
8. An uparchei logos
9. Anoites agapes
10. Voices (song by Joan Faulkner, lyrics: K. Kavafi)
11. Isoun theos
12. Se magika nusia
13. To proto peristeri
14. Oi filoi (from Charis Alexiou - Odos Nefelis '88 -, but so beautiful that I want it on the CD)
15. K'an se thelo
It was difficult but for all kinds of reasons (personal, beautiful lyrics, lively music, peaceful music, etc) this my list. Working on the second personal album though.
For the jacket: I would like various pictures of Dalaras from different periods and with an autograph of course. On the back, the list of the songs and a small picture of my meeting with Dalaras.
Sarantiis, would that do?
And an addition:the cover photo of this CD must be the one on "Live Recordings-1987".

Great topic and glad you thought of it.
First I will give you my top 15 selections for Vol I cd.
hehe since I like almost all Dalaras songs I would need many volumes to complete my favorites.
okay without further a due here they are:
15. Kali Tuhi
14. Stin Alana
12. H Ballanta Ton Ais8heon Kai Ton Parais8hseon
11. Irtha Yia Popse Ta Skakalopatia sou.
10. Stou Thoma
9. Mano Mou Ellas
7. Ta Fantasmata
6. Me Ths Kardias Ton Xtypo
5. Edo Ki Eki
4. Xenos Gia Sena Ne Kai Tros
3. My Girizis Pia
2. Mi Milas Kindinevi H Ellas
Now let me ask you a question.
On my computer,
I can only copy directly from one cd to another.
In other words it has to be copied in its entirety from the original source. No matter how many tracks are on the original to the copy it has to be done in this format. I can not pick and choose which ones I want to edit, exclude, include etc.,
How do you mix and match on yours?
Micki,Christo and Sarantiis.I have two words for you:GREAT SELECTέONS.How could I forget to include "e elefteri kai orei" in my CD?Or "kali tihi"?Or "taxidi sta kithira"?....But I think it was because of being limited with only 15 songs.
After reading Micki's creative idea about the CD jacket,it was necessary for me to improve mine.Now,I am thinking of a jacket with a black and white illustration of Dalaras on it.Certainly showing him on stage.Wouldn't it be better?
Sarantis, thank you, you have taken a great load of my mind. I was torturing myself trying to choose 15 songs only from all the songs I love and there you are with your (almost) perfect list. I say 'almost' because I always need Doste mou mia taftotita. So which title should I delete ?
I forgot to talk about the jacket. I would put Picture number 5 (Cuba1.jpg) from the Diafores section.
Wait a minute. I have done that already!

One cd with all my favourites is just impossible.
What I'm trying to work out is a CD with 15 songs that mean particularly much to me at this particular time of grief and danger in the world. And I need a second one, with 15 other songs, that mean something special to me in my personal troubles.
As you can imagine, this is taking some serious time&thinking... not to mention checking the spelling
I'll let you know though.

I'm working on mine but it will take some time, as I really have a problem to decide on just 15, but will let you know soon.
Christo, I hope I remember well and understood well, that in your message you said to have difficulty to get different music tracks together on a CD.
I use "Easy CD Creator" by Adaptec and it is ONLY version 3.5. They are allready at version 5.0 I think.
But when I make a CD I have those WAV-files on my Harddisk to select from.
The program I use to Encode the original CD is called Gamut-98 and it allows me to get the music from CD into the PC as MP3
So all my music is in MP3 format within the PC and prior to burning a CD I encode it back from MP3 to WAV using a program, MPEG decoder 948 kB, that I can easily send you attached to an E-mail.
For those frequent CD burners among members. Please scan your Covers. In JPEG they can easily be exchanged attached to an E-mail.
Okay guys here is my personal top 15 CD with songs of Dalaras.
To be honest I could make 5 more cd's.
2) Paraponemena logia
3) O paleos stratiotis
4) Ti pathos
5) Sto Pepremeno
6) Aspro peristeri
7) Mia vradia sto Leverkusen
8) Kali tuhi
10) Mad about you (with Sting special for all Dalaras fans and my wife Yvonne and my good friend Nikolas)
11) Ton avanaton ( It remembers me to my good friend Johan who passed away a couple of years ago and I played this song for hours)
12) Wooden horse (with Joan Faulkner it remembers me to my cat's operation after a hard time)
13) Fantasia mou
15) Omorfi poli (theodorakis 95)
I hope you like this selection with 85 cd's at home of Dalaras you can imagine how difficult it is to make right selection.
I will hear your comments.
It 's not hard, it's impossible, So you don't burn one cd, you burn one cd everytime you are in the mood. When I was burning the one I mentioned in this thread, someone walked by and said: Again? Is there anything left?
I replied: Of course there is.
She said: So, what's the title for this one now?
My reply: Τα άγραφα
There will always be something left. You can choose for a CD, for every mood, time of the day, for Summer, Winter, ...
But I couldn't read the title of your new CD. Could you put it in again in not-Greek alphabet please?
Soc, you are more than a philosopher, you're a poet.
