Most are familiar with Carl Sagan's Cosmos series from 1987 with music by various artists including Vangelis.

A lot of music used in the series did not end up on record & at times I came across music extracted from the film attributed to Vangelis when in fact it was Synergy.

But this is something different, one of the contributors with 2 tracks was an unknown William Jeffrey Boydstun & out of curiosity I tracked him down some 7 years ago in the US making contact Laughing

Image

The story was he knew the series producer who gathered music and presented it to Carl Sagan who preferred various artists rather than a single composer & ending with Vangelis as favorite.

The track Alien Images is the same but Metamorphosis is some 1:30 longer on the CDr as a different mix without any od the nature sound fx.

I used to love collecting, following every thread sometimes leading to unique treasures

Vangelis - Mama O - Red Square

By the late 70's V pretty much did it all: pop (hits), studio albums, pop collaborations, soundtracks, adverts, etc. and, also Flop Hits.

He worked on stuff clearly aimed at the pop music charts often cloaked behind pseudonyms or variations on his real name(s) & one such release is this 1978 synth pop single.

Before exploring this release I'd like to stir up some "dust" by questioning V's pop compositional abilities Shocked because looking back at some facts I don't think he was in his element.

For pop music he resorted to arrangements of classical music as well as original compositions with varied degrees of success and flops.

Vangelis recycled his own compositions on several occasions with new singers as if convinced the public developed bad taste and it was just a matter of timing for the same song to be finally accepted Laughing

Red Square is a strange 7" single from 1978 with limited release (UK & Spain) by the independent UK Logo label.

Normally this would be a hard to discover item due to the "double cloak" as Mama O for artist (a variation on Papa-thanassiou O-dyssey) & the credits for Richard Broadbaker which is a more common Vangelis pseudonym he used between 1973-1980 mainly on pop collaborations.

Strangely enough the Spanish promo version includes a label "promo" sheet explaining Vangelis' involvement making me wonder what was the point of all that secrecy Rolling Eyes but it seems to have worked escaping Polydor's attention.

Both tracks are produced and arranged by Richard Broadbaker with Red Square incorrectly credited to a "Branovitch" & B side uncredited.
Vangelis' arrangements & Nemo Studios sound is unmistakable.

Red Square is a funky, cheesy take on the Danube Waves waltz composed in 1880 by the Romanian composer Ion Ivanovich.

https://soundcloud.com/user26322322/sets/red-square

Danube Waves was part of Andre Rieu's repertoire, check this nice version:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U60aqpE90Jk

The B side When the Cat('?)s Away is weaker and while sounding familiar I can't point the original.

Both tracks have been well produced at the time & what you hear has no audio enhancements like limiting/compression or Eq.

It will be interesting & hilarious if this gets removed for copyright reasons Very Happy :
a 1978 single by Vangelis who at the same time is Mama O & Richard Broadbaker and, rearranged public domain music released on a long gone record label while under contract with Polydor Rolling Eyes Very Happy

As time permits I'll continue posting some really rare music

The Yumas - Happiness/Tapata 7"

I often wondered how Vangelis dissolved Aphrodite's Child to focus on non commercial solo projects yet he continued to work with his band mates for years to come like this odd release from 1973.

Image

A web search for the music or official information will yield nothing so all we know comes from the minimal cover & disc label credits.

The single was released only in Italy as a white label promo and the commercial one above.

Side A/Happiness is the theme from the summer '73 radio show Nastro Di Partenza composed by Argiris (Silver) Koulouris who played guitar on 666.

Side B/Tapata is composed by Vangelis under his pseudonym Richard Broadbacker misspelled as R. Broadbacher.

Musically the tracks can be categorized as Rockabilly/Jazz Funk/Swing with no recognisable Vangelis playing but some approximation of the 666 sound is present.
