George Romanos

a look at the music of Vangelis Papathanassiou

George Romanos is a Greek artist who recorded several albums in the sixties and seventies. His music ranges from Greek pop to psychedelic rock. In 1968 George worked with "Vangelis and his Orchestra" on several songs that appeared on his album "In concert and in the studio". 

The members of Vangelis' "orchestra" were in fact the same musicians that would later that year form the group "Aphrodite's Child", after the group travelled to France in search of a more international audience....

Curiously, the instrumental versions of the songs “I agapi mas kimate sta nera” and “To Roloi” would in the same year also be released as a 7” single under Vangelis’ name, titles “Our love sleeps on the waters” and “The clock”. The single would be the very first solo single ever to be released by Vangelis !
