Le Coeur En Fete

LP (Item 910081) AZ/Wah Wah (Spain), 1972 — Condition: Near Mint-
(reissue)

Easily one of the most trippy albums ever from Andre Popp – a French arranger who's usually best known for his lounge recordings of the 50s and 60s – but who's working here in a more psych-inspired mode that's right up there with the work of Jean Claude Vannier and Michel Colombier! Like both of those artists, Popp uses conventional instrumentation, turned towards trippier rock-era styles – a bit of flute, light guitar, touches of organ and piano – all held together by electric bass that sews things up from the bottom – and produced with lots of cool studio effects that further trip out the core sounds! The work is way different than Andre's gentler pop instrumental records – and titles include the funky "Pour Celui Qui Viendra", plus "Tric Trac", "Ophelia", "Ave", "Theme In G Minor", and "Toutes Les Pommes Du Paradis".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Reprise, 1962. Very Good+
Later work by Les – not as exotic as some of his Capitol sides, or his other work for Reprise, but more in the mode of his mid 50s pop instrumental work. The "voices in rhythm" are a vocal chorus that sings on the tracks – dreamily drifting in a moody way over Les' ... LP, Vinyl record album
