Paris, 1954. Henri-François Rey wrote the theme of the piece La bande à Bonnot and asked Boris Vian to write the songs for what would become a musical comedy. "La Bande à Bonnot" was the name of a French illegal anarchist group that operated in France and Belgium from 1911 to 1912, and as soon as the piece was played at Théâtre du Quartier Latin in 1968, French authorities demanded that it be stopped, and musical parts were subsequently lost. In 1971, Legendary French record executive, talent agent, and producer Jacques Canetti learned that the original handwritten lyrics of Boris Vian's songs had been found. Canetti asked Louis Bessières to recreate musical parts, and in 1975, Canetti released this record with Vian's songs performed by Judith Magre, Yves Robert, Lucienne Vernay, Pierre Jamet, Kim Ibarra, Maurice Barrier, and Cécile Vassort. This first-ever vinyl reissue includes two bonus tracks originally intended for inclusion in La bande à Bonnot: "La Java Des Chaussettes À Clous" by Jacques Higelin and "L'Anguille" by Magali Noël. Remastered sound; gatefold sleeve.
