Vangelis details 13-disc box set Delectus

Exclusive: Vangelis will release box set featuring his seminal albums and rare exclusives in early 2017

Vangelis has announced a 13-disc box set called Delectus – set for release early next year.

Delectus is issued on February 3, 2017, and features a chosen selection of his early work. The collection will include all of his albums on Vertigo and Polydor, recently signed by Universal and remastered for the first time ever under the composer’s own supervision.

Vangelis says: “I always welcome remastering my old work for two basic reasons. Firstly, I get the opportunity to bring the sounds to today’s standards. And secondly, it gives me the chance to go through the experiences and memories of the time.”

Delectus is presented in a box with an essay and a host 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.

It 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 and Private Collection.

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

Delectus can be preordered now.
