Ένα μοναδικό βιβλίο για έναν μοναδικό καλλιτέχνη

Η δίγλωσση αυτή έκδοση (στα Ελληνικά και στα Αγγλικά) είναι μια εμπεριστατωμένη μονογραφία για την καριέρα και την καλλιτεχνική προσφορά του λαϊκoύ τραγουδιστή Απόστολου Νικολαΐδη (1938–1999), ενός από τους σημαντικότερους εκπροσώπους της «σχολής Καζαντζίδη» ο οποίος υπηρέτησε με πάθος και συνέπεια το αυθεντικό λαϊκό τραγούδι επί σχεδόν 40 χρόνια. Ήταν ο πρώτος ερμηνευτής που ηχογράφησε «χασικλίδικα» ρεμπέτικα τραγούδια με τους αυθεντικούς τους στίχους στις αρχές της δεκαετίας του 1970, όταν το συγκεκριμένο μουσικό είδος απαγορευόταν στην Ελλάδα, με τις απαράμιλλες και αξέχαστες ερμηνείες του να προκαλούν πρωτοφανή αίσθηση και να συναρπάζουν το ελληνικό μουσικόφιλο κοινό.
