This is the 1st time that vangelis uses a real orchestra...rather just
him playing orchestral sounds via samplers / synthesisers.
Its the reason its not one of my fave vangelis albums because it lacks that
true vangelis sound..that even a full orchestra cannot duplicate.
i was at the concert in athens too...i;m not convinced what i heard there was
live..my instinct says it may be playback .. or a bit of both...anyway..
vangelis is a god. i worship him.
