What do you do when you have some time to spare, and feel like experimenting with Jazz and Funk ? Exactly, you take off for London, team up with a few fellow musicians, and jam away :-)
Still in 1971, Vangelis played several sessions in the London Marquee Studios, some of them together with violinist Michel Ripoche, bass guitarist Brian Odger and drummer Tony Oxley. For some reason the recordings were never released at the time, and lay shelved until 1978, when Charly Records suddenly released the music under the name 'Hypothesis'. Apparently this release wasn't approved by Vangelis, as he successfully went to court to get the album off the market.
Not my rip. Full credits to juanchito for the rapidshare links. Seed and enjoy!
