Ripaille - La Vieille que l'on Brula vinyl lp (due to size and weight, this price for the USA only. Outside of the USA, the price will be adjusted as needed)

SKU 18-RPC 056
One and done progressive rock band from 1978, originally on the Balloon Noir label by a band from Brittany.
This is its first-ever vinyl reissue since that time!
"Ripaille (guitar, bass, drums, keyboards-vocals & keyboards) plays an elaborate progressive rock music, mixing rock, folk and medieval influences. In combinating those styles, the band established an obvious link to both Ange and Gentle Giant. Here you'll find vocal perfection and complexity, truly fine arrangements, and the combination (Shall we say fusion?) of acoustic and electric instruments (like violin or crumhorn)."

"One of the top masterpiece from France , this UFO is a real gem. Obviously inspired by Gentle Giant and in a lesser way Gryphon, this is a good adaptation of medieval music to a good concept prog album. If one must categorize this then be it in folk-prog then as this is very much acoustic and the french lyrics are a joy to read. The story is not really linear but all the numbers are linked by the lyrics that aim at the dark ages without all of that heroic-fantasy stuff."-ProgArchives
