Few days ago I posted a phone number for a company that sells
greek music. To day I received mail from people who tried to call
the company but the got a message saying the # was not available.

So here's the number again: 1-800-4530013,(I dialed it from
Illinois, and works fine). Another no. showing on the cataloque is

Someone mentioned looking for Greek music stores in Astoria. One
place that carries Greek CDs and tapes (also videos) in Astoria is

Corfu Center

There is also a Greek store on 42nd street just across from the Port
Authority Bus Terminal, again with CDs, tapes, and videos.

The best place I've found for Greek music is
Greek Video Records & Tapes, Inc., 394 McGuinness Blvd.,
Brooklyn, New York, U.S.A. 11222,
phone 718-383-9455, FAX 718-383-5313.

You can request copies of their catalogues:

1. Video Catalog: over 1200 titles of Greek videotapes
2. Compact Disc Catalog: over 800 selections of Greek CDs
3. New General Cassette Catalog: over 1200 selections of Greek

This place is the best source for music. Most of the retail Greek stores
buy their music and videos from here, so they also sell wholesale.

We have here in Sydney a music store called Odeon Music House, which
has a very good collection of Greek music. It does also stock other
"international" stuff, but its Greek collection is its speciality. The address
is 94 Bathurst Street, Sydney, NSW, and the phone number, 02-267-6480.

About three years ago, my wife and I were in Athens on holiday, and
found that we had a better selection of CD's in Sydney, than we saw in Athens.
(We are both Rembetika fans.) I suspect that Melbourne, given the size of the
Greek population there, also has pretty good availability of Greek music.
