Vangelis O. Papathanassiou. Earth ‎(Cass, Album). Earth has 2x CD rleases: An official Greek one and the unofficial Hungarian issue.

Released in 1973, Earth is Vangelis' first real solo album. It was made in Paris after the release of 666 and the eventual dissolution of Aphrodite's Child, but before the epic decadence (nearly to Ken Russell levels) of Vangelis' 1975 effort Heaven and Hell.

Vangelis o. – earth – 1973. Vangelis O. Papathanassiou is now known as the electronica genius composer of film scores, albums and phenomenal music that has influenced both artists and music lovers world-wide for the past four decades. His Academy Award winning soundtrack for Chariots of Fire brought him deserved attention which he immediately followed-up with the exquisite soundtrack to Bladerunner and the rest is history – but before that, Vangelis was a Greek Rocker.

Earth is the first official solo album by the Greek artist Vangelis, released in 1973. The album was promoted by a concert, held in Paris, at the Olympia Theatre in February 1974.

Themes is a 1989 compilation album of works by Greek electronic composer and artist Vangelis. It featured some previously released tracks from Vangelis's other albums, as well as some pieces from movie soundtracks that had not previously been released. The album is notable because it marked the first official appearances of Vangelis' music from the films Blade Runner, The Bounty, and Missing. Of these three film scores, only the Blade Runner soundtrack has since received an official release.

The Best of Spain Volume 1. Vangelis, Philharmonic Wind Orchestra & Marc Reift, Bert Kaempfert, John Glenesk Mortimer. Light And Shadow: The Best Of Vangelis. Chariots of Fire-Theme for Solo Piano (From the Motion Picture score for "Chariots of Fire"). Vangelis, Mark Northam.

In 1973, Vangelis recorded Earth. Vangelis was finished with Aphrodite's Child, but was somewhat in limbo, wanting to continue experimenting but still not wanting to fall into a formula like Aphrodite's Child. There are moments of both on this album, using Robert Fitoussi (aka FR David) as the vocalist on several tracks. The album also holds interest to Vertigo label collectors, and there is indeed one Vertigo swirl label issue of Earth that even most Vertigo label collectors do not have or even know about, coming from Italy.
