After the break-up of Aphrodite’s Child, Vangelis wanted to relocate to London. Producer Giorgio Gomelsky introduced him to some other musicians and put together a collaborative project which was funded by French free jazz record label BYG records with the intention of releasing an album. Two albums’ worth of material had resulted from these sessions, but were unfinished and never intended for release.
Some years later, Charly Records took over the catalogue of the bankrupt BYG records and released the recordings as album The Dragon without the approval of the performers.
