Play Time (France), 1969. New Copy ... $32.99
One of the grooviest albums ever by this baroque French arranger!

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!
