Stereo Ultra Vol.3
"This is an exiting delve into the obscure and forgotten music libraries of French music from the 70's. It's an aural odyssey into wildly adventurous instrumental gems created for TV, film & radio that graced the undisputed hip French media; and all these incredible tunes were composed and created by elite group of little-known yet highly talented artists like Pierre-Alain Dahan, Sauveur Mallia, Daniel Humair or Eddie Louiss. The music of this compilation came about a period that saw the psychedelic beat parties and love-ins of the 60's give way to peace protest and space hoppers; But people still wore their hair long -- They still knew how to party. Guitars may have lost their fuzz to the wah-wah pedal, and musicians did become fed up with moving & _ tonne Hammond around in a hearse -- They put mini-Moog in their Mini instead. But that doesn't mean that the music became lightweight too -- there are enough dark, rumbling basslines, intoxicating fat beats & solid instrumental jams here to burst big holes in your dad's new music center. And so here is the music that acts as a soundtrack of that time, a music that was a backdrop to the supersonic jetSet parties frequented by Serge Gainsbourg, Brigitte Bardot or Michel Legrand. It's music that sums up a period in french style that has gained the admiration & respect of the world up to including today, and because these tunes had never been made available to the music-buying public, they sound as fresh as ever."
