The full length version allows listening to the first sounds and notes without the end of Memories of Blue fading over it, making it stand better on its own as a separate track.

Note that in addition to the CD single, the track was released as a 12" picture disc, in a limited edition only. A very rare collector's item. It's hard to decide whether this is a single maxi or album. It has a standard jewel box usually used for album releases , but only contains three versions of the same track.

All three are remixes of "In London" by "Neuronium and Vangelis". The booklet contains an unseen picture of Vangelis but nothing else of interest. This CD single by "Vangelis with Stina Nordenstam" contains the "Ask The Mountains" track from the Voices album in a shorter "single version" edit and a previously unreleased track called "Slow Piece" , also by Vangelis music and Nordenstam lyrics and vocals. The 3 track version is packaged in an album-jewelbox and contains an additional "extended version" of "Ask the Mountains" which is slightly longer than the album version.

Included in the booklet are the lyrics of the title song. This single was released to promote the "Portraits" compilation album. The title track was the endtitle to Frederic Rossif's nature film with the same title.

It was the last Rossif film to be scored by Vangelis. Sadly there was never a full soundtrack album, as the film contained various other interesting themes and soundscapes. This single contains a shorter edit of the "Voices" , which skips some repeats and does without the break beat appearance near the end of the album version.

Other tracks are a separated "echoes" Voices album re-titled to "Voice II Echoes " and for the 3 track version of the single also the album track "P. A promo version exist containing an even shorter "radio edit" and the usual single edit.

It sold well in certain European charts, especially in Germany where it got linked to Boxer Henry Maske again, who had also ignited the public rediscovery of Conquest of Paradise, about a year earlier. Maske also featured in a special video clip aimed at the German market. Another video clip featuring more anonymous sporters featured in other countries.

This one-track CD single was released in some European countries while the Conquest of Paradise single was still in the charts, probably in an attempt to be carried by Conquest of Paradise's momentum.

It did however not manage to reach the charts, nor was it played on radio. It contains the shorter edit that was already released on the compilation album "Themes". The track "In London" was recorded as an improvisation in in Vangelis' Nemo studios situated in London.

Vangelis and two members of Neuronium played it in front of the camera's for "Musical Express", a Spanish television show dedicated to electronic music. Neuronium frontman Huygen polished it in and subsequently released it on CD single. Both versions were shipped with a picture of Vangelis and Huygen inside Nemo studios.

It contains "West Across the Ocean See" as extra track. The French version is packaged in a cardboard sleeve, while the UK version is placed in a "christal" box as CDmaxi singles usually are, despite featuring only 2 tracks. A promo version was released in the UK, on which the title track is featured as a shorter edit. This version starts with a fade-in at the first appearance of the Conquest of Paradise theme, and fades out a number of bars later than the normal edit, prolonging the final loop during fade out.

The Crystal box looks identical to the regular UK version. Single release of the closing titles of Ridley Scott's film ", conquest of Paradise". The track lasts and does not fade over to another track like it does on the album. It also contains the track "Moxica and the Horse" from the same soundtrack album and on the 4track edition only two otherwise unreleased tracks called "Line Open" and "Landscape" Both have nothing to do with the film.

The Dutch 2track edition has the same cover as the CDmaxi, but comes in a cardboard sleeve instead.
