Happy holidays everybody!

All of you who are following or checking my blog from time to time, I guess you realised that lately I'm kind of "lazy". That happens because of the wonderful weather and the heat which are forcing me to stay outdoors as much as possible, but also because I'm already in a vacations mood.
My vacations will start very soon, so I will not be able to write my usual posts here for sometime.
 Because August in the month on which most people are going for vacations, I want to wish you a great holiday season! Enjoy it, because... the winter is coming! :P
I'll be back in almost 2 weeks and I will continue updating my blog.
'Till then, take care, and enjoy the summer!
Thank you.

GFreedom's channel on YouTube. One more update...

Hello all!
  As many of you know already, a few months ago I opened my personal channel on You Tube.
Every now and then I'm writing here a post in order to inform you about the progress of it.
Since last Saturday it exceeded the number of 10.000 visits, which is something really encouraging.
  I have made 4 playlists with different music themes in order to be easier for you to find songs from the music style you like. Maybe in the future I will create more playlists, but for the moment I think these 4 are enough.
  So far the playlists are: 'Rock in General' (including 62 songs), 'Folk - Rock' (including 18 songs), 'Hard & Heavy' (25 songs), and 'Progressive' (124 songs). But because I'm uploading songs in an almost daily basis, as you can understand these numbers are changing very fast.
   I want to thank all of you who are visiting, commenting, sharing and listening to the songs I'm uploading.
I also want to say a very special thanks to the 40 people who have subscribed so far. (This is another very encouraging fact for me).
 All of you who might be interested to pay a visit to my channel and you don't know how to find it, here's the way: Open YouTube, go to 'Browse Channels' and write 'George Eleftheriou'. Then press 'Search'. It will be most probably on the top of the list, and you can recgnise it from my avatar which is 'The Jester'.
 Thank you for reading this...

GFreedom's Juke Box Nο.100

Hello all!
 Here I am again with the 100th 'Juke Box' post, which is my weekly Top-5 songlist.
When I started writing these series of posts I did it mostly for fun, and I couldn't even imagine that at some point it would reach the number 100.
 Most probably this will be my last 'Juke Box' for the summer, because we are already in the holiday season, and I'll have to take a break from everything soon enough.
As for my best 5 songs for this week, you can see them in the list below:
STRAWBS: The Battle (Strawbs - 1969)  
THE COMMITMENTS: Land of a Thousand Dances (The Commitments Vol. 2 - 1992)
JEFFERSON AIRPLANE: Rejoice (After Bathing at Baxter's - 1967)
GALAHAD: Richelieu's Prayer (Beyond the Realms of Euphoria - 2012)
TED NUGENT: Stranglehold (Ted Nugent - 1975)
I will conclude this post by adding 2 videos with songs from my list. Today I chose to post two songs from totally different music styles, both from my channel in YouTube. So, the first one is 'Rejoice' by Jefferson Airplane, and the second one is the excellent cover version on 'Land of a Thousand Dances' recorded by 'The Commitments'.
 Enjoy the music, and thank you for reading. :)
