a look at the music of Vangelis Papathanassiou
Okay, there really is a lot of humorous things about this record, once you take a closer look at it :-) First of all, the pseudonym Mama 'O. (which is confirmed to be Vangelis by the Spanish press-sheet) actually is a joke about Vangelis' nickname "Papa O." The same sheet apparently also explains why Vangelis is also credited by his other pseudonym, "Richard Broadbaker", apparently for contractual reasons. And finally, notice how the two dancers on the sleeve are really dancing on a red....circle ? Just shows that this one-of playful experiment must have been a lot of fun to produce!
Tracklist and Credits
Side A: Red square
Side B: When the cat's away
Produced and arranged by Richard Broadbaker.
Note that the Spanish single comes with a picture sleeve and a press-sheet, unlike the UK single.
It is not clear where these songs are recorded, but considering the timing most likely Nemo Studio was used to record the songs...
