Holy shit. So I just listened to this album on YouTube and it's FANTASTIC. So much 80s cheeseball fun. And the first track even has the riff in it that would go on to become the First Born theme and then, later on, way way way down the road, 160 BPM from Angels & Demons. It's really incredible how distinct Hans' voice is even as early as 1983. As much as I enjoy the vocals, I'd kill to get instrumental versions of some of these songs.
Yo dude. Thanks for pointing this out. Listening to it now. Sounds excellent.
And in the Track 4 isn't that a bit of Inception?
Where do you listen to this guys? In my channel? I have the album in my channel.
Yeah, Dimitris, it was your channel. Thanks man! :)
Wow! I thought I recognized the name of the channel. Awesome dude. Thank you so much.
Oh yeah it's great, Moonlight In Vermont even has Beckett's Death from POTC 3 !
if for whatever reason zimmer , cann, griff decides not to release the spies album, there will forever be something of great importance missing in the music indistry! just the fact that is never was released does it even more interesting.there are still a lot of people around the world who would be very excited if it happened.it would make their career complete, and such great material should not be forgotten.pleeeeeeeeease!!!!!!

I'd love to know in details what was the part of the singer Ronny on this project. Which tracks exactly she does vocals? Kindest regards ;-)
I also heard for the first time the tracks "Holding On" and "Stranded" and was greatly impressed. They seem timeless at this present day.
I have a feeling that eventually the Spies album will be released. I guess it was meant to be. Hans, Warren and Zaine deserve this as a testament to their creativity, ambitions and friendship. The music contained in this album and Zaine's albums and singles was where it all started for Hans.
Vielen danke fur die Musik von drei Helden! Der Moment fur Spies ist heute und immer und immer!
Recently several videoclips and live-clips from Zaine Griff are added top YouTube and can be watched there. As you might know Hans Zimmer played in Zaine's band, was with him on stage at Zaine's final Grand Finale concert in The Venue London and Hans also arranged a lot of Zaine's music on zaine's second album Figures. Also two of the tracks from SPIES are added (as "audiomovie") on YouTube.
Are copies of this bootleg still available anywhere - as far as you know? Was it only released in 1984 on vinyl? Or maybe later (also) on CD? I think two tracks are missing from the complete album: the first track "--Mother Company"-- and the last instrumental track "--Eva"--, that should have come after "--Movies for Eva"--. I know that for a long time the Ultravox fanclub tried to convince Hans Zimmer to release the CD. Several times it was close to release -as I understood. But until now it is not there? And why was the album never released? It would have been released on their own label ZiCa records 001 (Zimmer/Cann), but it never was. Do you know the reason. Only the 7"-- and 12"-- of the Single "--Holding On"-- (with beautiful vocals of Zaine Griff and Linda Jardim) was released, with two songs on the B-side. But I think that was never really distributed. Beside that I think in the credits you should mention that Zaine Griff did the vocals on the most songs ( The Ball, Holding On, Stranded, Borderline. Movies for Eva) and also Hugo Vereker (Young &-- Scientific and - I think - My Killing Hand) and excellent female vocals of Linda Jardim on most of the tracks. I think it's worthwhile to mention that! One last question: who were the writers of the songs? Were they all written bij Zimmer/Cann or where some songs written by Zaine Griff? And what was the work done by Steve Rance - also mentioned large on the cover of "--Holding On"--. I thought he was technician or did he do other things in the Helden Project as well?
