Vanay, Laurence - La Petite Fenetre (expanded / remastered)

SKU 18-LION 687
Beautiful deluxe CD edition of this mega French rarity. I've long heard of this, but never actually heard it until now. Mastered from the original stereo tapes, this is a limited edition of only 300 copies and includes a 24 page booklet with rare photos and Jacqueline's story, as well as many bonus tracks. It's pretty great; read on!

? "The tracks on the album reflect my feelings at the time, a great happiness to live an interesting life (although stressful!) with the key, a happy story of love."-Jacqueline Thibault

“My ship of stone, tonight I came as a passer-by. Yet I gave you everything, my joy, my love, my freedom. I feel like singing, dancing, laughing like in the old times.”-Jacqueline Thibault (from ‘Mon vaisseau de Pierre,' a tribute to the Hérouville castle)
"Jacqueline Thibault (Laurence Vanay) often worked for other artists at the legendary Château d’Hérouville studio as arranger, keyboardist, co-composer, and assistant sound engineer. Between sessions she sometimes managed to record her own music. Several years after her two acknowledged masterpieces, "Galaxies" and "Evening Colours," she was able to bring together the tracks for “La Petite Fenêtre” (The Little Window). Trouble with the Château finances meant that again it was impossible for her to present her work to interested record labels. Instead, "I worked in another recording studio in Paris for fashionable artists," she said, "and I managed after a time to resume and complete my unfinished songs." At that time, the French record companies were not interested in instrumental music anymore. The recordings therefore found themselves asleep on Parisian shelves, pending potential better days. Sublime compositions: unique, melancholic and very powerful. Bonus tracks include Glaciers Interdit, music for a film by Pierre Zanone."
