Vangelis Papathanassiou -《爱的权力 & 梦比夜长》(Sex Power & Fais Que Ton Reve Soit plus Long Que La Nuit)[FLAC]
据说这是一张十分稀有的专辑。虽然创作时间早于the Dragon 和 Hypothesis，但是风格却不似这两张那么愤青。演奏的主要乐器是吉他，偶有几个电子音节。
当有人为了追寻这张唱片，而找到电影Sex Power的导演Henry Chapier（一位着名的法国小说家）时，他回答说，这部影片的拷贝已经不知道流落到什么地方了，他更奇怪为什么这么久了，怎么还会有人对其中的配乐感兴趣？他哪里知道，这张在他眼中不值一文的普通配乐就是大师vangelis的处女作啊！
《Fais Que Ton Reve Soit plus Long Que La Nuit》
Sex Power. This soundtrack has, due to its extreme rarity, become a VERY expensive collectors item. Every now and then a rare copy changes hands for many hundreds of US dollars.
The music sounds rather "early", and has dated more than for instance "L'Apocalypse Des Animaux", which must have been recorded only about a year after "Sex Power" was. The style however is much closer to the familiar Vangelis sound than the illegal "Hypothesis" and "The Dragon" releases were.
The music was recorded on piano, acoustic guitars and other acoustic instruments, but also a number of early electronic sounds appear throughout the work. Backing vocals are uncredited, but the distinct sound and vibrato style leave little to the imagination, they must be Vangelis' Aphrodite's Child collaborator Demis Roussos's work.
The film has been much of a mystery for long, never airing on TV or being released on the modern audio visual media, due to its underground character. This changed however after a restored version of the movie was shown at a festival in Nice, and the French archival institute INA added it to its collection of online sales.
Although the movie does contain some nudity, it is not the soft pornographic movie some have speculated it to be. The movie does stay clear of mainstream film conventions, telling a very abstract story, shifting back and forth in time and leaving as much as possible open to interpretation.
The movie's director Henry Chapier has been quoted saying Vangelis recorded most or all of the music in the film in single takes, while watching the movie, much as Vangelis would do for later movie scores. In the same way the soundtrack LP release precursored later releases: Many of the themes on the LP are different takes from what is included in the movie, sometimes rearranged a bit, segued into different music, etc. There is some music left in the movie that is not available on the LP, and vice versa.
Around the time of its initial release, "Sex Power" was featured at the "San Sebastian" film festival in Spain.
There are track markers on the LP, but the only titles provided on sleeve or label indicate the album sides. A 7" single release however contained two cuts from the album with proper names. The A side was called "Djemilla" and can be found on the album's A side, after the first trackmarker. (The first track on this side lasts about 30 seconds, followed by "Djemilla"). The B side of the single is called "Third Love" and can also be found on the A side of the album: The 5th track (The music following the fourth marker).
Unfortunately there was never a CD version of this album. CDs found in some shops containing both this album and Fais Que Ton Reve (plus some Forminx tracks) were illegal bootlegs. (elsew.com)
Fais Que Ton Reve Soit Plus Long Que La Nuit. This extraordinary album ("May your dreams last longer than the night") handles the left winged student-riots in Paris, 1968. The music sounds like a collage of newsrecordings, soundrecordings, folk songs, pianothemes, and indeed: a few early synthesizers used in quit a progressive way for the era. Some lyrics were taken from inscriptions on the walls at the riots.
The indication "Poeme Symphonique de Vangelis Papathanasiou" ("Poeme symphonique" is a general term for a musical work based on a non-musical concept) is sometimes mistaken for the title of a separate work in some discography's, which is not the case.
A few years after the initial release with black cover a second issue was released with a peculiar orange and yellow cover, followed by a rerelease of the rerelease, with pink in its cover.
A CD version of this album was never properly distributed, but for one day only a CD was sold in Greek news stands as a premium (optional extra for a magazine) with the "Ta Nea" newspaper. It came with the work's intended international title: "Paris, May 1968". The quality of this release was far from optimal (probably transferred from vinyl) but its distribution did manage to mark the 40 year anniversary, sharing the music in a unique way with the Greek public.
For the record: CDs sometimes available in shops, with this album combined with "Sex Power" are illegal bootlegs! (elsew.com)
