Greece has not the wealth of soundtracks Italy or France have and certainly not the rich jazz groove that one can find in almost any well-known or not Italian b-movie soundtrack. Yet the music is there, mostly undiscovered, as there are lots of Greek movies of the 60s and 70s -a very productive era for the Greek cinema - with great but still unpublished music!
There was an attempt to explore the richness of Greek b-movie soundtracks through Greek label Potfleur which unfortunately did not last. The label ceased operation but still managed to publish some gems. 2 out of 5 posts below were published by Potfleur.
What follows is a sampler of 5 fine grooves from Greek composers:
1. Title Theme from Anazitisis (Search) - Yiannis Spanos
(from Anazitisis movie, 1972)
2. On the Streets - Mikis Theodorakis
(from Serpico with Al Pacino, 1973)
3. A Travers Montmartre - Stelios Vlavianos
(from Le Jeune Fabre French TV series, 1970)
4. La Discotheque - Mike Rozakis
(from She Knew no Other Way, 1973)
5. Fluted Vibrator - George Theodosiadis
(from Gynaecocracy, 1973)
