Incredible electronics from the French scene of the 70s – spacey, funky, trippy, and even a bit clubby too – a perfect cross-section of all the cool analogue elements that were ebbing forth from Paris at the time! A few of the bigger French artists broke big on these shores – often paving the way for soppier work of the next generation – but this set features a much deeper range of talents than we ever would have expected – plenty of cats who easily match the most experimental styles of the German prog electronics world, or the dark corners of Italian soundtrack composers, or even some of the fiercer grooves to come in the pre-house years in the clubs! Reading the set list, you might be surprised to hear some of these artists in the same company as each other – but hearing the set, you'll be wonderfully pleased at the way the whole thing comes together – a great range of cuts that includes "Motel Show" by Pierre Bachelet, "Shanti Dance (parts 1 & 2)" by Droids
, "Magic Fly" by Space, "Temps X" by Didier Marouani, "Le Reve" by Patrick Juvet, "Le Bracelet" by Alain Gouraguer, "Rocket Man (inst)" by Rockets, "Disco Energy"b y Universal Energy, "Love Machine" by Space Art, "Survol" by Francois De Roubaix, "Le Physique Et Le Figure" by Serge Gainsbourg, and "Spirit" by Frederic Mercier.
(Limited numbered pressing! Super-heavy package – and 2LP set comes with bonus CD version of the full album.)
