a look at the music of Vangelis Papathanassiou
Still in 1971, Vangelis played several sessions in the London Marquee Studios, some of them together with violinist Michel Ripoche, bass guitarist Brian Odger and drummer Tony Oxley. For some reason the recordings were never released at the time, and lay shelved until 1978, when Charly Records suddenly released the music under the name 'Hypothesis'. Apparently this release wasn't approved by Vangelis, as he successfully went to court to get the album off the market.
Other recordings of these jam-sessions were released at the same time, titled 'The Dragon'.
