Vilma Lado

a look at the music of Vangelis Papathanassiou

Well, what can we say about Vilma Lado ? Nothing much, except she was Vangelis' girlfriend back in the late sixties, and together they recorded these two songs, 'Une etoile' and 'Le vent', released as a single in 1967.
Vangelis and Vilma stayed friends long after this collaboration though, as in 1971 Vilma also appeared on a single made under the name 'Alpha Beta'. The song 'Une etoile' is considered part of the Greek 'Garage' movement from the sixties, as it was released on the (bootleg) garage LP 'Operation Shake the Earth'.
