Vangelis 13-Album Boxed Set ‘Delectus’ Coming Feb 3rd

vangelis-box-setVangelis has announced a new 13-disc box set, Delectus, that is set to be released February 3, 2017.

The collection will include all of his albums on Vertigo and Polydor, remastered under his supervision.

“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.”

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 & Vangelis’ – Short Stories, The Friends of Mister Cairo & Private Collection.

Presented in a lavish box with an essay and a collection 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 about this period in his career.

The remastered originals will be complemented with rare B-sides and 4 previously unreleased tracks.

  1. I would like to get his music from Blade Runner that NEVER made it on any CD, including the one I bought a few years ago, that claimed it had all the music not on the official soundtrack CD.

  2. What a waste of opportunity to bring to the table some really good and unreleased soundtracks! Still we are waiting for a proper release for “The Bounty”, “1492 Conquest of paradise (complete score)”, “Blade Runner (complete score)”, “Chariots of fire (complete score)”, “Missing”, “Francesco”, Antarctica (complete score)”, “Cavafy”, “Bitter Moon”, “Cosmos”, “Cousteau”, etc. How long do we have to be listening to those awful bootlegs with terrible sounds? We have been faithful to Vangelis music for many years and I think that we deserve some respect !
