Just an amazing album. Quite unlike other "switched on" albums. Preserves Satie's sense of humor and irony. Combines full on period synth with acoustic instruments in a tasteful way. Tracks are introduced in French and English in a way that lets you know Satie's musical jokes you'll be hearing; highly whimsical to match the whimsy of Satie's music. Quite clever and well done. Really unappreciated rare LP. Grab it if you see one.
