  • From album liner:
  • "OPTIMYSTIQUE" was recorded in 1980 and released for the first time in 1984. I considered re-recording or reworking the material before re-releasing it again, but the album has a very special sound representative of a particular time early in my career which I wanted to preserve. For me, it is a piece of my history I remember fondly. – – Yanni

Review On Optimystique - Yanni by kahfess -- MouthShut.com (199 words)
Optimystique was recorded back in 1980 but not released until 1984.
Yanni considered re-recording or reworking the music before releasing it again to the public, but finally chose to release the album as it was originally recorded because it reminded him of a particular time in his career, like a piece of his history that he wanted to preserve.
