Spiral is a studio album by the Greek electronic composer Vangelis, released in 1977. It is characterized by melodic simplicity, distinctivity of each track and their directness. The Spiral builds on an arpeggio chord, teased out with rhythmic delays, while Ballad's building on an electric organ, harmonica, with synthesised vocal motif, with climax on brass and timpani, then losing steam and returning to the tranquility of the harmonica. Dervish D is a robotic funk, a sequencer arpeggio base, percussion and a synthesizer melody. As far as Vangelis' early work is concerned pertaining to the five years of his solo career, Spiral stands up quite well, although it's almost always regarded as an inessential effort. Although the structures and the overall dynamics of the pieces are less complicated and less sophisticated, Spiral's keyboard utilization is still extremely effectual, even if it does take awhile to get off the ground. Spiral is a 1977 album by the Greek artist Vangelis. The sleeve design was by Vangelis himself mentioned on the cover. The recording engineer was Keith Spencer-Allen, assisted by Marlis Duncklau. The album is entirely instrumental, apart from Vangelis' processed vocals on Ballad one of the few occasions where his voice can be heard on his albums. Vangelis plays synthesizer, sequencers, electric piano, drums and percussion. The album is entirely. Vangelis - Spiral - Dervish D 5:16. Vangelis - Eureka Rotterdam 1991 Full Concert Live 49:59.

Not as well known as his earlier RCA/Nemo Studios album (Heaven and Hell, Albedo 0.39) nevertheless this is my favourite of his RCA series. It's not a long album, but all the tracks are listenable and the quality of the German pressing is superb - hardly any surface noise.
