Hydravion / Philippe Besombes - Anthology 1975-1979 : 4 x CD box set (expanded) (due to weight, this price for the USA only. Outside of the USA, the price will be adjusted as needed)

SKU 28-PRLE3679.2
Newly lowered and extremely attractive pricing on this excellent box set. Hugely recommended to fans of 70s electronic sounds!

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. These include the bonus tracks that were on the MIO releases. The two by his 'electronic rock band' Hydravion [Hyrdravion (1977) and Stratos Airlines (1979)] have never been reissued on CD before. The first one is a definite minor classic of the scene and sound.

"Deluxe limited edition four CD set of studio albums by France's pioneering electronic avant garde artist, Philippe Besombes. Includes the dramatic electro-acoustic experimental soundtrack for the 1975 film Libra, plus the 1979 solo album as well as both albums by Besombes' progressive electronic group Hydravion. Comes packaged in a sturdy box with individual sleeves for each CD as well as a booklet containing extensive liner notes written by Dave Thompson based on a brand new interview with Besombes."
