Gilles Bodard: You have also done the soundtracks of "Blade Runner" & "Missing". Are you happy with them? Vangelis: I did what I wanted with them. For the rest, I will just wait & see.

The Brass Sound: Vangelis' favorite, the Yamaha CS-80, to which he had been introduced at a trade fair in 1977. He was excited by the possibilities it offered, but arranged to have one on loan for a few weeks before deciding whether to spend the necessary £4850 ($8460 or an adjusted to $35500 in 2008 US Dollars). During this period, Vangelis recorded the "Spiral" album (released 1977), which featured the CS-80 on every track.

Shortly after his introduction to the instrument, he imported a CS-80 from Japan in order to bypass the six-month UK waiting list. And the synthesizer arrived in London after a mammoth train journey through Russia. With help from Yamaha-Kemble's Dusty Miller, Vangelis eventually went on to buy another seven CS-80s, some of which were for concerts, while others were just for spare-parts. Yamaha discontinued this synthesizer, by 1980.

1981 Best Original Music Score: For his Academy Award-winning score, to the 1981 film "Chariots of Fire"; he refused to attend the ceremony (Apr-82).

Vangelis: I've never been to the US. Maybe it's a nice country, but I'm not sure I want to go. It's aggressive, young, & plastic.

You're welcome, Svanya. Also, I've found by temporarily lowering my screen resolution, that it's easier to read this Vangelis fan-site. + Several B&W memorabilia photos, & some orphaned from the site:
