Francois BayleElectrucs ... LP
Transversales Disques (France), 1974. New Copy ... $28.99
Boy, that cover alone is more than enough to draw us in – a frizzy-headed guy sitting amidst a whole host of 70s studio gear – but we've also always loved the music of Francois Bayle, which has always been some of the most striking in the French electronic tradition! The work here is all previously unreleased – and side one features a host of spare, stark tracks that has Bayle working with a portable set of 70s electronics – with a feel that's more intimate than the scope of the image on the cover might make you expect – as Bayle creates all these weird and wonderful cycles of sound on the album's short tracks. Titles include "Ennemi Intime", "Voltage Stomp", "Quadrille", "Crepuscule", "Train Noir", and "La Chose". The work on side two is maybe a bit closer to a tradition that would include Pierre Henry and Pierre Schaeffer – and titles include "Marpege", "Foliophonie", and "Cinq Dessins En Rosace".

Gianni MarchettiIl Magnifico Tony Carrera ... LP
CAM/Transversales Disques (France), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
A great one from Gianni Marchetti – the Italian composer we know best for his work on The Wild Eye, but who sounds equally great on this set too! The best tracks have a heavy rhythm at the bottom – not really funky, but kind of mod, and a bit more off-kilter on the slower numbers – which makes for a really compelling sound, especially next to some of the set's unusual instrumental twists. A number of the tracks feature the vocal chorus 4+4, conducted by Nora Orlandi – and they sing in a sweet and moody style that nicely offsets the groovier work by Marchetti. Titles include "Psico Classico", "Amore In Controluce", and "Psico In Controluce" – done in a number of variations, including some which are previously unreleased! LP, Vinyl record album

Ennio MorriconeGrazie Zia ... LP
CAM/Transversales Disques (France), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
A really amazing soundtrack from Ennio Morricone – presented here with the full range of tracks for the first time ever! The music uses some wonderful vocals – sung in a style that's pop, but very creepy too – that way that Morricone vocals can have of being almost chant-like, and sort of satanic! Biance Di Renata Cortiglioni is the singer, and she's much more word-based than Edda Dell'Orso – and it appears that her vocals are overdubbed to create this cool sort of chorus effect – one that only makes the whole thing sound even creepier! In addition to the snapping rhythms of the vocal tunes, there's also some nice sprightly elements on the instrumental cuts too – not upbeat or funky, but an offbeat way that's got a jaunty snare for propulsion. Titles include "Fratello Biondo", "Guerra E Pace Polle E Brace", "Amore Col Cuore", and "Grazie Zia". LP, Vinyl record album

Igor WakhevitchKshatrya (The Eye Of The Bird) ... CD
Transversales Disques (France), 1999. New Copy ... $18.99
A really haunting record from French composer Igor Wakhvitch – better-known for his more way-out material, but sounding equally great here on an unreleased instrumental set from the end of the last century! The music was composed on his "Mysterious Island 88" system of electronics – supposedly from the Poppy Nogood library – and the tunes open up with this slow-building flow and dark-edged sense of space that really fits the image on the cover. The work feels much more like a late 70s/early 80s electronic score than you'd guess from the date – very much like those moments when earlier European electronicians created soundtracks for more offbeat cinematic moments – but the set's also filled with very long tracks that are very enjoyable on their own – not short musical cues, but long extrapolations that include "The Roarer The Entry Of Darkness The Guardian Of The West", "Love Song To Ekalavya", "The Golden Night (parts 1 & 2)", "27th September 1942 Train No 38", and "The Ride Of The Makara".

✨✧ Francois De RoubaixLe Saut De L'Ange/RAS ... LP
Transversales Disques (France), 1971/1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Philip GlassMusic In Twelve Parts – Live In Paris 1975 ... LP
Transversales Disques (France), 1975. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
A previously-unreleased French recording of one of the greatest early compositions by Philip Glass – presented here in a recording that also features Glass himself as one of the performers! The group is a sextet – with organ work from Glass, Michael Riseman, Jon Gibson, and Joan LaBarbara – the last of whom also sings in a really beautiful way, in keeping with her reputation – and the group also features alto saxes from Dickie Landry and Richard Peck. The mixture of reeds and organ lines is fantastic – spinning out in these sonic cycles that are completely hypnotic, and which must have been hell to perform as a group together! Titles include parts 1, 2, 3, 11, and 12 from the longer work – and the 2LP set also features an interview with Glass from 1974. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bernard ParmegianiMemoire Magnetique Vol 1 ... LP
Transversales Disques (France), Late 60s/1970s/1980s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Rare material from the archives of Bernard Parmegiani – one of the founding members of the legendary GRM in France, and a key underground figure in the world of electronic music! Parmegiani's name isn't as famous as some of his contemporaries, but his sound is equally striking – often very textural, even when he's playing the keyboard himself – with a minimal quality that almost links his work here to some of the more popular German electronics of the 70s. The tracks here span the late 60s through the late 80s – but they're all relatively unified – and make the album an essential addition to Parmegiani's catalog, even if the work appears here for the first time ever.
