Delectus - The Polydor and Vertigo Recordings 1973 - 1985
Modern music visionary Vangelis releases a new 13-disc box set entitled Delectus, featuring a chosen selection of his early discographic work. The mammoth collection includes 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. 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 and Vangelis - Short Stories, The Friends of Mister Cairo and Private Collection. The remastered originals are complemented with rare B-sides and 4 previously unreleased tracks. 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.
