Frankie: Weve gotta leave him here, honey. Формируйте собственную коллекцию записей Jon And Vangelis. The second Jon & Vangelis album. Initial copies in the UK had a unique embossed sleeve see Jon And Vangelis - The Friends Of Mr Cairo and later the better known cover. The album was re-released in most countries later the same year, adding the single I'll Find My Way Home, swapping the sides, and using different artwork with a brown background. In the UK this meant a change to the Cat. from POLD 5039 to POLD 5053. The Friends of Mr Cairo is the second album by Jon and Vangelis, released in 1981. Both versions were released in 1981 within a few weeks of each other. The title track, The Friends of Mr Cairo, peaked at No. 1 on the Canadian singles chart in late 1981, though this track was not a hit elsewhere. Vangelis, Jon Anderson. Jon And Vangelis - I'll Find My Way Home. Jon And Vangelis - State Of Independence. Jon And Vangelis - Beside. Jon And Vangelis - The Mayflower. Jon And Vangelis - The Friends Of Mr. Jon And Vangelis - Back To School. Jon And Vangelis - Outside Of This Inside Of That. The second album-length collaboration between Jon Anderson and Vangelis is almost perfect in its blending of elements it's only when the pair tries to do some serious rocking on Back to School that things take a bit of a nosedive. Our friend played the song, Friends of Mr. Cairo for us and we were entranced from the first moment. It gets you involved cos they're telling a story and it's lush with visuals. The opening grabs you and holds you through the entire song. Jon had said that after he and Vangelis released this album in 1981, he spoke with Quincy Jones who in turn told him that he and Michael Jackson listened this album when making Thriller to get the feel and sound of what they wanted to make. A better endorsement you couldn't ask for. Read more. Listen free to Jon & Vangelis The Friends Of Mr Cairo I'll Find My Way Home, State of Independence and more. 7 tracks 45:18. See actions taken by the people who manage and post content. It's 1980 and Jon Anderson from a fumbling YES joins up with VANGELIS who was both benefactor and beneficiary of the soundtrack era. The strategy worked brilliantly for one album, that incorporated modern at the time electronica and pop into a progressive concept. Friends of Mr Cairo was not a huge American hit but sparked pockets of J&V mania including Ottawa where I spent college years. Mayflower can, too, especially the quiet parts. The Friends of Mr. Cairo is the best track of this album. It has enough of a story going on to make it interesting, although 12 minutes is a bit too long again. And if it were on a good album, it probably wouldn't be considered a highlight

Roll up, roll up! Come listen to the album that defined a production standard for modern dance music! Seriously!

This is a real enigma of an album. At face value this should be nothing more than an oddball collection of tunes featuring a dash of Vangelis magic. However it is much more than that...

On this disc you will find house music that is about 10 years ahead of everyone else ('State Of Independence') and lush ambient that would not be out of place on a 'Best Of' album by the Orb ('Friends Of Mr Cairo'). In between is electronic music that stills sounds as good as anything from the current crop of killer artistes.

You will also discover audio production so good for 1981 that it makes most modern (2005) digital techniques seem grossly heavy-handed by comparison. Lush is the best single word to describe the sounds here - the Vangelis magic is indeed in evidence. And finally you will discover the hugely emotional voice of Jon Anderson, a man who should have been singing deep house music for the likes of Murk.

This CD is the audio equivalent of a finding a platinum diamond ring inside a Christmas cracker. Receiving a copy of this album 20+ years after having heard it on vinyl is a real revelation. Unknowingly this album probably went a long way towards defining my emergent musical tastes.

I'd suggest to anyone interested in electronic music that they blag a copy of this and listen to it on a good sound system.
