Vanay, Laurence - Les Soleils De La Vie (expanded / remastered)

SKU 18-LION 688
Beautiful deluxe CD edition of this mega French rarity from 1977. 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

"Following the international release of “Evening Colours” in 1976, Jacqueline Thibault (Laurence Vanay) continued to compose songs that she recorded on her multi-track Revox. But she had little time for her own music, working day and night at legendary international recording studio, the Château d’Hérouville. Still, Jacqueline managed to bring together the compositions for “Les Soleils de la Vie” (The Suns of Life), with the help of her perpetual musical accomplices—Serge Derrien (guitar, flute, wordless vocals) and John Chevalier, aka Popov (drums and percussion). There was also the timely intervention of other friends, Michel Santangelli (drums), Jean Claude Guzelli (bass) and Francis Moze. Decca Records was interested in producing the album back in 1977, but asked for a remix of the music. Only several years later was that finally possible—too late for Decca. The recordings therefore found themselves asleep on Parisian shelves, pending potential better days. Shimmering, mysterious, sometimes funky, deeply emotional examples of musical beguilement."
