United Artists, Late 60s. Sealed ... $9.99
This is sort of a compilation that features Michel Legrand's great scores for the films Thomas Crown Affair, Young Girls of Rochefort, La Piscine, and Play Dirty.

A rare bit of Canadian psych from the start of the 70s – served up by a group with a sound that's all their own!

MiquelaI A De Sars ... LP
Ventadorn/Finders Keepers (UK), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
An album from the mid 70s, but one that's got an almost timeless sort of vibe – given that it was recorded in the ancient language of Occitan, and set to instrumentation with lots of lightly folksy touches, and a fair bit of jazz-styled phrasing too! The mix almost gives the set the feel of ... (Rock, French) read more LP, Vinyl record album
