Demis Roussos: Let It Happen [1977]
Vangelis O. Papathanassiou: Let It Happen [1973]

I'm a bit loath to do second-hand blogging, but when something rules to this extent it would be unconscionable not to play it. So many thanks to Space for turning me on to Demis's version of this song and to JAZ for coming through with the clean copy.

In the Demis version, what is that sound that comes in at the 1:40 mark? Best sound ever.

Vangelis and Demis both available on CD.

Is this an island on the photo?

Good call, Diagilev. It's Santorini.

The 1:40 sound is a synthesizer with some heavy duty ring modulation.
