The Little Fete from · Vangelis China.

“I take a bottle of wine and I go to drink it among the flowers.
We are always three … counting my shadow and my friend the shimmering moon
Happily the moon knows nothing of drinking, and my shadow is never thirsty
When I sing, the moon listens to me in silence. When I dance, my shadow dances too.
After all festivities the guests must depart. This sadness I do not know.
When I go home, the moon goes with me and my shadow follows me”

    1. I have 3 versions of this album, original vinyl record, CD and this remastered one as a flac file. Rather like Vangelis: another of my favourites is ‘The City’ released in 1990 I think.

      1. Yes!!!! [Procession: fave!] As for China, I have a signed vinyl copy [dedicated to me] after my dad visited him for the musical theme for the news titles back then! I must have been 11 or something and this album made me so happy! 😉
