For International Buyers - I have great rates for international shipping, especially large parcels to Japan and Western Europe, but of course I will ship WORLDWIDE. IF YOU WIN MULTIPLE ITEMS DO NOT USE EBAY CHECK OUT in order for me to get you low combined postage. Send me an invoice request instead. Two great Turkish/ Greek electric recordings. Greek OUDI Harilaos PIPERAKES PETHMNI(...) PENTOZALI/KYDONT(...) SYRTO plucked and bowed instruments, drums, male singing Out - Trampouka - Ziaia 10" 78 rpm record Condition: VERY GOOD MINUS, very rubbed and scratched, deep chip on KYDO goes 1cm into grooves, hole very enlarged, plays with crackle Here is some information about the performer: Harilaos Piperakis, vocal and lyra; oud, percussion. Recorded c. 1948 in New York City. . Harilaos Piperakis is from Crete, where he was born in 1890. He emigrated in 1908 and for decades traveled across the country as a musician, entertaining at dances and weddi ngs in Cretan-American communities. He claims to have begun recording around 1930 and to have been on the first to record Cretan music. Today he lives in retirement, traveling between California and his son’s home in Austin, Te xas. “Siteiako” means simply a dance from Sitiea. The dance is a pentozali, or five-step. They lyra, a three stringe d viol played vertically, is of Turkish origin. The words to “Siteiako” are especially lovely: “Oh, the light of my eyes . Why does it go dark when I hear my darling’s voice? Where could I find a flower garden to resemble your beautifu l walk and grace? I gave you my heart, the essence of my body; but then you took my mind. I gave you my heart, but I was foolish, not asking if others had made you the same gift. I don’t want it back; another will be given to me.” Quick NOTE ON GRADING AND SHIPPING: As you can see from my feedback, I try hard to earn your POSITIVE FEEDBACK and FIVE STAR RATINGS. If for any reason your transaction was NOT SATISFACTORY, pls contact me and I will work something out with you. YOU WILL NEVER HAVE A REASON TO GIVE ME A NEGATIVE RATING or a LOW STAR RATING. Quick note on grading: The Grade (Excellent to Fair, I don't give Mint) refers to the WEAR of the record. Any other defects are stated separately, when prefaced with "HOWEVER" or "BUT" they will be significant. When I listen to a record, I may also give it an aural grade (again E to F), and make a SUBJECTIVE judgment of the pressing quality for hiss and surface noise. "SUPERQUIET" is basically noiseless, like a vinyl pressing. "VERY QUIET" is an exceptionally quiet record for a given pressing. "Quiet" is a record that is a great example without undue noise for a given pressing. These judgments are SUBJECTIVE and will depend one the styli, phonograph etc. you use on your own equipment. Pls check my other auctions for more great records and phonograph items: ==== Multiple item shipping: I am happy to combine items for shipment in one parcel. If you win multiple items, pls send me an INVOICE REQUEST to calculate the correct postage. Ebay check out will not give you the multiple item discount! Records will be packed safely between corrugated cardboard in a sturdy box with plenty of padding for safe shipment. Shipment is usually Media Mail, unless another service is requested. Shipping is at your risk, I will be happy to insure items at your cost. I charge actual postage plus a small fee for packing materials As always, I guarantee your satisfaction. If you don't like the item, just return it, and I will refund the full purchase price. If you are in the San Francisco area, I encourage pick-up in person. US Domestic Shipping: Here is a guideline for US Media Mail Shipping: Prices below are for regular 78 rpm records. Up to about 5 records, I will ship Edison Discs for the same rates. Estimate count for Album Sets as number of records plus 1 record. I have a great track record for sending LARGE PARCELS of records safely 1 record: 4.75$ 2 records: 5.75$ 5 records: 7.50$ 10 records: 9.50$ MANY MORE RECORDS: Don't worry. I safely ship 40 - 50 pounds of records double boxed in moving boxes, and even then Media Mail will probably not exceed 30$. The numbers above include the 9% Ebay fee on shipments. Pls ignore the automatically calculated prices on the ebay site, as I will weigh every parcel and charge based on actual weight. Please send me a message if you would like to lower your shipping rates! International Buyers: All'attenzione degli acquirenti italiani: ATTENTION TO ITALIAN BUYERS: Due to rare problems with delivery in ITALY, I will NOT GUARANTEE delivery of parcels sent by US Postal Service First Class and Priority Mail. If you prefer secure delivery, I will be happy to quote you either Registered Mail or shipment by FEDEX I am very happy to ship records worldwide. One record usually ships for 20 - 25$ worldwide, 14 - 19$ to Canada Pls contact me for a shipping estimate, or send me an invoice request after close of auction. For very large parcels, I have very economic shipping rates, much lower than US MAIL, especially to Japan, Western Europe and Taiwan.
