Vangelis has been my inspiration, my idol and my example for all my conscious life. Ever since I heard ‘To the unknown man’ at the age of 8 I was hooked on the style and music of this incredible composer and musician. I have since then collected all of his albums. When I heard he sadly passed away I had to do something. So this is a ‘mix’ I worked on very hard and very long with my personal favorite tracks of Vangelis. I hope it gives you some comfort and/or you enjoy it.
I’m sure you think some tracks are missing, to everyone it’s a personal feeling. But to me this feels as a good overview of his music that has changed and influenced my life.
Rest in peace, unknown man.
