2003 remastered reissue of Barouh's third album, originally issued in 1977. Pierre Barouh is the founder of the Saravah label, and producer of Brigitte Fontaine. Well known for this orchestral-tinged, bossa-influenced composition style. "Recorded in 1976 over Jean-Pierre Auffredo's orchestrations, Viking Bank is one of the last ones from the 'great time' where Saravah had its office and recording studio at Montmartre. The record passed unnoticed at the time and Pierre Barouh's humbleness, or rather, his natural capacity of recognizing other people's talent, explains why this fine album is only now available to all enthusiasts."
