Francois De RoubaixLe Saut De L'Ange ... LP
Transversales Disques (France), 1971. New Copy ... About June 25, 2018
A beautiful score from the legendary Francois De Roubaix – a soundtrack that has a bit less electronics than some of his famous records, but a sound that's completely amazing all the way through! Francois has this incredible ear for sonic textures – so that he can pull out unusual frequencies from a piano or keyboard line, or some odd passage from a woodwind – then put them together with a really unique sense of timing and space, which seems to make each great element resonate even more strongly with the others! There's a slow-stepping brilliance to the whole thing that really makes for a lot, even in the short space of the soundtrack – and titles include "Drive In" and "Le Saut De L'Ange", in a few variations – plus "Percussions" and "RAS".

Claude LombardClaude Lombard Chante ... CD
Sommor (Spain), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... About August 1, 2018
The stunning debut album from the lovely Claude Lombard – a Belgian singer, but one whose work here resonates with the grooviest French records by singers like Sylvie Vartan or Francois Hardy! Lombard is probably less pop than either of those artists – and almost has a way of opening things up with weirder phrasing and more unusual modes – ala some of the artists at Saravah Records. Arrangements are by Willy Albimoor – who did so many other odd projects of the period, including work with Chakachas – and the music features bits of electronics, soaring strings, and even some light bossa inflections – all to make a sound that's every bit as great as you'd guess! Titles include "Polychrome", "Les Enfants Perle", "Midi", "Mais", "La Coupe", "Sleep Well", "L'Usine", "Les Vieux Comptoirs", "Les Musicens", "L'Arbre Et L'oiseau", "La Camarde", and "Petite Frere".

VariousChebran Vol 2 – French Boogie 1982 to 1989 ... LP
Born Bad (France), Mid 80s. New Copy 2LP ... $22.99
Great grooves from the French scene of the 80s – a time when Parisian musicians were picking up a lot of the electro soul elements from the New York scene, but also mixing them with other currents of European and African dancefloor modes! This set's a bit later than the first volume in the Chebran series, and maybe even more compelling too – as the increased electronic elements in the music make for loads of wonderful touches that are waiting to be rediscovered by a 21st Century audience – the expected beats, keys, and basslines – but also some great ways of electrifying the vocals, especially when the lyrics are more chanted than sung. There's a huge world to discover here – and titles include "Ta Face Preface" by Brigitte & Michot, "Jawla Feli" by Hamidou, "C'Est Tabou" by Marie Jose Fa, "Funky Rap" by Phil BArney, "Lipstick (Shout)" by JM Black, "Ettika (vers maxi inedite)" by Ettika, "Propriete Privee" by Sammy Massamba, "Dansez Le Raksi" by Nordine Staifi, "Cairo Connection" by Philippe Chany, "Qu'Est Ce Qui Ne Va Pas" by Alfio Scandurra, "Break Magic Dance" by Creole Star, "Yamna" by Ganawa, and "La Rage Du Funky (rmx)" by Manu.
