A true experience. A journey to a world which exists no more, where greatness and uncertainty were at the same level in every soul of every man who was living that time. This Exposition Internationale was held in Paris in 1937, pavillions were full of promises for tomorrow and a sense of wonder surely filled the imagination of the visitors. Unfortunately few years later world would have gone into war, again. This opera magna from the great LJDLP captures in an unpeccable way the feeling of the event, you are definitly there and you share emotions, excitement and at the same time fear for what is going to be. Honestly I broke into tears the first time I had the chance to listen to it. Sure it's not for everyone, 60 copies. You can download it somewhere, you can have those bootlegs cds. Nothing will give you the chills like holding the real thing. Photos, postcard, the album, the flyer (everything real!) makes you travel through time and space.
