Classical M - The Complete Collection

SKU 05-LION603
So, this package shows up here about 18 months ago, and it has a long letter from this guy and a CDR of the recordings by his psychedelic pop band from 1967-1970. A few tracks were released at the time as singles, but most of their recordings were not released. It is generally very good psychedelic pop of its era, but we didn't feel it was quite right for Cuneiform and gave them a few leads towards other labels and I am happy to see that it has found a home. Nicely packaged with lots of information. "...the country of France and the genre of psychedelia are usually thought of as 'mutually exclusive'. We humbly present a glorious exception. Deftly combining lilting vocal harmonies and lush studio production, to say the brothers Maruani (Guy and Andre) and Henri Bratter were the 'Gallic Fab Three' is a claim ably backed up by the sheer brilliance of their two English-language 7"s released by EMI-Odeon in 1969. Fortunately for us, and despite the machinations of the Robert Stigwood Organisation (a management decision they would soon regret), they had a bit more to say and so we give you all four single sides, seventeen unreleased compositions (most in finished form with superb studio fidelity) and three tracks sourced from their 1970 appearance on the French TV show 'Pop Club' (also easy on the ears fidelity-wise). Rounding out this package are track-by-track liner notes by the ever-sardonic Guy Maruani, complete lyrics and a multitude of photos from the era. C'est si bon!" [Lion Music]
