Philippe Besombes is a French electronic musician of the 70s and this reissues four of his works from the 70s, both solo and with his group Hydravion.
The two solo releases, Libra (1975) and Ceci Est Cela (1979) have both been previously released on CD by MIO, but they have been out of print for a decade.

This is the three legendary albums by this very, very experimental, very very early avant group (1967-68) exploring sound collage, mixed media and much more. NOT on the NWW list, probably only because they were too obscure for them to even know about them!

"Angels And Daemons At Play is the fourth installment in the ongoing Motorpsycho luxury box-set reissue program. While almost every Motorpsycho release is, in one way or another, a step forward, backwards, sideways, or most often everything at once, Angels And Daemons At Play, originally released in 1997, is probably their first coming-of-age album. Following on the heels of 1995's more streamlined Blissard, AADAP is the typically stubborn response from a band refusing to be categorized. Thus, it is...

"If the Delta country blues has a convenient source point, it would probably be Charley Patton, its first great star. His hoarse, impassioned singing style, fluid guitar playing, and unrelenting beat made him the original king of the Delta blues. This collection compiles all of the 58 tracks he recorded between 1929 and his death in 1934. Charley Patton was the godfather of the Delta Blues with his style of playing inspiring the likes of Howlin' Wolf, Son House and Robert Johnson."

Catherine Ribeiro was one of the best known female vocalists in France during the 1970's. For the time, her albums were quite far out, with excellent and also rather wild singing by Catherine, as well as excellent backing by her superb band Alpes.

This is all 9 of the albums that Catherine and Alpes recorded between 1969-1980 and these range from quite good to quite...
