Gold-colored LP in gatefold sleeve with printed inner sleeve; includes CD. The idea that France once had a genius and let him go to California where he was more welcome and appreciated than in Paris is, in the digital era, commonplace. Every web entrepreneur heads toward Silicon Valley to develop ideas. During the '70s, this was less ordinary. Back then, the music world witnessed the departure of a very talented guy for the United States, a country that quickly understood he was a star. Marc Cerrone, a trained drummer and disco phenomenon who sold more albums than many other artists put together, saw his career magnified by America but also slightly twisted by France, which quickly reduced him to a style -- disco music -- without trying to understand who he was and how relevant his talent was. His path went through two phases; two complementary moves. The Golden Touch was released in 1978; its composer is one of the spiritual fathers of the dense '70s disco era.
