Vangelis Papathanassiou – Sex Power
At the end of 1969 Vangelis composed and released his first music for a movie outside of Greece. “Sex Power” (sub-titled “L’Homme Coeur”) is a 81 minute long movie and also a first for director Henry Chapier, who won the Silver Shell Award with his film at the San Sebastian Film Festival.
The musical score that Vangelis wrote for this film has become the ‘holy-grail’ of collector’s items, as the LP released by Philips in France and Greece can be viewed as Vangelis very first solo album. Not many copies must have been sold at the time, and with the current high demand its value ranges into the hundreds of dollars.
