Vangelis has announced details of a new new 13-disc box set entitled Delectus, which contains some of his best known work.
Along with Chariots Of Fire, the set includes remastered versions of Earth, L’Apocalypse Des Animaux, China, See You Later, Antarctica, Mask, Opera Sauvage, Soil Festivities and Invisible Connections.
“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.”
The set also includes his collaborative recordings with Jon Anderson as Jon & Vangelis – Short Stories, The Friends Of Mister Cairo and Private Collection. The remastered originals will be complemented with rare B-sides and 4 previously unreleased tracks.
The tracklisting is:
L’Apocalypse Des Animaux
See You Later
Chariots Of Fire
The Friends Of Mr Cairo
