I’m in Ohio this week hanging out with my friend Jon. We stopped at a thrift store up the road from his house. I’ve been there before and it’s usually a reliable source for one or two good items. This time it was Vangelis’ “Heaven and Hell” album, from about 1975.
I like some of Vangelis’ stuff. For some reason I always lump it together with Jean Michel Jarre. It’s probably not fair, but it’s what happens when you’re American and they’re both two European electronic musicians with funny names from the 70s. Sorry guys. Anyway, I’ve never heard this album before it seemed like a good opportunity to pick up a little early Vangelis.
