From Bourque-Moreau Associés (BMA) Folklore Productions:

This 2-CD set features 40 exciting folk melodies played by the legendary Bulgarian accordionist and compiled by Yves Moreau from the archives of the Bulgarian National Radio (BNR), Balkanton records and rare old 78's. Descriptive notes by Manol Todorov and Yves Moreau (28-page booklet). Boris Karlov is credited for being the first to develop a distinct technique and style for playing Bulgarian folk music on the accordion. This compilation presents the «classics» of Karlov's repertoire in chronological order. Boris Karlov was an usurpassed accordion player with an exquisite and particular beautiful tone, full of emotionality. He was a folk musician with an iron sense of rhythm and brilliant technique who played Bulgarian folk melodies with an infectious musical sensitivity. Some of his tunes have become standard favorites among North American Balkan music and dance adepts: Bavno Horo, Gjuševska Râčenica, Dajčovo Horo, Gankino Horo, Elenino Horo, etc.
