"'Freedom fries' idiocy aside, the country of France and the genre of psychedelia are usually thought of as 'mutually exclusive'. We humbly present a glorious exception. Deftly combining lilting vocal harmonies and lush studio production, to say the brothers Maruani (Guy and Andre) and Henri Bratter were the 'Gallic Fab Three' is a claim ably backed up by the sheer brilliance of their two English-language 7"s released by EMI-Odeon in 1969. Fortunately for us, and despite the machinations of the Robert Stigwood Organisation (a management decision they would soon regret), they had a bit more to say and so we give you all four single sides, seventeen unreleased compositions (most in finished form with superb studio fidelity) and three tracks sourced from their 1970 appearance on the French TV show 'Pop Club' (also easy on the ears fidelity-wise). Rounding out this package are track-by-track liner notes by the ever-sardonic Guy Maruani, complete lyrics and a multitude of photos from the era. C'est si bon!"
