Claude Lombard Chante
Sommor (Spain), 1969. (reissue)
CD ... 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 ... CD
Riviera/Universal (France), 1971. (reissue)
LP ... About May 20, 2018 (delayed)
Killer work from Nino Ferrer – with loads of hard-jamming funky cuts! Nino got his start in the beat sound of the 60s – but here, he's working with arrangements by Bernard Estardy, ones that have a trippy jazz approach with lots of freewheeling guitar and organ, odd percussion, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Le Saut De L'Ange
Transversales Disques (France), 1971.
LP ... About June 25, 2018

Francois has this incredible ear for sonic textures – so that he can pull out unusual ... LP, Vinyl record album
Les Petroleuses
Universal (France), 1971. (reissue)
LP ... About June 10, 2018 (delayed)
Les Petroleuses has a nice variety of sounds – some of the slinky, sexy, Euro-styled numbers you'd expect from Lai in the early 70s, and from a film starring Brigitte Bardot – mixed with other tracks that seem to foreground a version of the old west that's a bit playful – using ... LP, Vinyl record album
L'Aventure C'Est L'Aventure
United Artists/Culture Factory (France), 1972. (reissue)
LP ... About June 5, 2018 (delayed)
A totally great soundtrack to a totally great movie – a politico-comedy that starred Jacques Brel, Johnny Hallyday, and Lino Ventura – with some excellent music from the mighty Francis Lai! Hallyday sings the title cut, which is pretty great – but the instrumentls are even better ... LP, Vinyl record album
