13-CD BOX SET
Modern music visionary Vangelis has announced the release on 3rd February of a
new 13-disc box set entitled 'Delectus,' featuring a chosen selection of his
early discographic work. The mammoth collection will include all of his albums
on Vertigo and Polydor, recently signed by Universal and remastered for the
first time ever under the legendary composer’s own supervision.
Presented in a lavish box with an essay and a plethora of rare photographs, the
discs are housed in two die-cut, gatefold disc holders within a rigid 242mm
square slipcase, and accompanied by a 64-page book illustrating a period of his
prolific career of the iconic Maestro.
'I always welcome remastering my old work for two basic reasons' - explains
Vangelis - 'firstly, I get the opportunity to bring the sounds to today’s
standards, secondly, it gives me the chance to go through the experiences and
memories of the time.'
'Delectus' gathers together Vangelis’ seminal albums 'Earth', 'L’Apocalypse Des
Animaux', 'China', 'See You Later', 'Antarctica', 'Mask', 'Opera
Sauvage','Chariots of Fire', 'Soil Festivities' and 'Invisible Connections',
plus his collaborative recordings with Jon Anderson as ‘Jon & Vangelis’ - 'Short
Stories', 'The Friends of Mister Cairo' & 'Private Collection'. The remastered
originals will be complemented with rare B-sides and 4 previously unreleased
