Album no.2 on the essential list of Savvopoulos' early releases, "Vromiko Psomi" picks up from where "Ballos" concluded. The eclectic nature is ever apparent with styles ranging from cabaret music to folk, Greek ethnic (zeimpekiko-Epirotic-Macedonian-Thracean tunes) to avant progressive rock, and all that within 37 minutes.

The structure of the album is in a way similar to "Ballos", with several shorter-length songs and a long composition, which comes by the name 'Mavri Thalassa' and represents the absolute highlight; in this occasion, the album concludes (rather than opens) with that most majestic piece of composition.

Πρόκειται για γνωστό ντουέτο της Αθηναίας τραγουδίστριας-Λήδας Χαλκιαδάκη (κόρης της Δανάης Στρατηγοπούλου, γ. το 1946) και του επίσης Αθηναίου τραγουδιστή και τραγουδοποιού Σπύρου Βλασσόπουλου (γ. 4.10.1945). Το καλλιτεχνικό αυτό ζευγάρι παρουσίασε μια σειρά από αξιοπρόσεκτα τραγούδια του Βλασσόπουλου--σε στυλ ελληνικής country--ερμηνεύοντάς τα με ευγένεια προθέσεων και δίφωνη μελωδική κίνηση (πολλά σε στίχους Ανδρέα Αγγελάκη).
