SKU 18-Replica RPC 007
The 2nd of two albums by this early (1970-72) French progressive/Canterbury styled band.

"A full half of the songs on this, their second album, are completely instrumental, and those that are not have a clear instrumental focus.
The band was the four-piece of Gerard Pons (drums), Didier Thibault (bass), Gerard Bertram (guitars and vocals) and Maurice Helmlinger (trumpet, saxes, flute and hammond organ); in addition, guests contribute trombone, bassoon, vibes and backing vocals.
Their music was a powerful jazz-rock with a strong improvisational quality, yet all was tightly arranged and played fluently. Because of Thibault's fuzz-bass and Helminler's smooth alto and tenor sax delivery - as well as the overall feel of their sound, one might be reminded of Soft Machine around their second or third album, yet MGPs tunes are more pure and playful, from a strictly compositional standpoint.
Another point of reference might be early pre-zeuhl Magma, maybe circa 1001 Centigrades as well as The Muffins (this was still a few years before the Muffins formed, but the comparison still holds true.)..."-Expose/Peter Thelen.
