I’m sure that many Greek versions of Sandstorm will come to light in the future, but the classic and most well-known interpretation for the disco age is this one, by the flamboyant entertainer Giannis Floriniotis. I don’t know too much about Giannis, but the first thing that springs to mind is Adriano Celentano meets Elvis, with a touch of Jon Voigt. He seems to be still going strong these days, aided by a few plastic operations.
The recording is from 1979, and is even faster than La Bionda’s version. Lyrics are different too. It is also less heavy on the production side, but still a nice tune for those warm summer nights that are already extinct by now.
