Vangelis: Direct





One of my favourite Vangelis albums.
It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and leave no doubt.

Really nice article(s) about him on the BBC's website.  I hadn't realized how well he was regarded as a guitarist and his use of 'tapping', etc.

https://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-54446564

There are a couple of nice videos too there--including one of how he played.

Another go, with the standard mixes only.  Her best work since Overpowered, and the best neo-disco out there.  (OK, I don't listen to too much neo-disco.)

Over the last two months l've become acquainted with two jazz legends l had been ignorant of, Miles Davis and Sarah Vaughan.

Of the two, Vaughan has impressed me the most. What a talent! Even in an era where people of colour had limited opportunities, she could have made her mark in opera or any other genre. She had all the skills. And so once again, l find myself becoming a fan of a performer who left the stage decades ago...

Still learning,

Finally broke down and bought a redbook download and listened through my main rig.  Kiran Shahani knows production, something made easier, no doubt, with Ms Halligan.
