this fucking record is so good.Criminally undervalued symphonic jazz / exotica record. Flip it over and take a look at Jamal. OMG so cool. Now the music itself, i mean, God was in the stood, there is so much space, but at the same time the recording is ... See full review

there are some dicey reissues of these Happy End records, with some seriously blown out shit, but this sounds ok all in all. Bass still a bit blown, but to the point where like... can someone tell me how the originals sound? are originals a bit blown out ... See full review

Kinda sounds blown out, such a great album and so hard to get even this copy in USA so it's a shame :(

Where can I find them? Based on your comment regarding the boxset, I will say I'm disappointed by how insanely loud the bass is.

Hi there,

Trying very hard to determine if I have an original here. Can I get a verification of the runout grooves on this pressing?

Thanks

To anyone wondering how good this record is, the answer is VERY VERY GOOD. Not just 'wow pretty rad what's next' but 'is it over? put it on again!''

I love this album! Jean-Yves Labat is "M. Frog", a nickname he acquired when trying to decide on a stage name... an American friend suggested (perhaps insensitively) "Monsieur Frog" (Labat is French) and Labat obviously enjoyed the joke. Todd Rundgren ... See full review

This is a magical little record. Be prepared for this to really be its own thing. all those times you've lost your train of mind? that's what this sounds like

Decent to super fun jazz/funk. mostly legitimate hotness with occasional cheese mixed in

Worth it for SIDE B... the rest is pretty solid to wildly good... but I really think side B is great.
posted a review of Michael Quatro - In Collaboration With The Gods. over 3 years ago
Considering that you can grab this for like $3, you should pick up a copy. Suzie Quatro's brother kills it across a furiously paced (and completely instrumental) 1st side. Not everything works, but when it doesn't work, it's a DISASTER (like when a ... See full review

Manset is a GENIUS. Collect his records. One of the most underrated artists.

This record kicks ass. The title track is epic... incredible chords, incredible vocal.

4.3 out of 5 **I love Manset!**
posted a review of Christian Boulé - Photo Musik. over 3 years ago
I was nervous about pulling the trigger on this record because the only jams I could find on youtube were awesome instrumentals, but the images/notes warned of vocals across much of the record. I couldn't resist as the instrumentals were hot as HELL... ... See full review

Love the album, but mine appears mint and yet skips. Mystifying. sound blown out throughout

This is a timeless album. If you play it, Robert Wyatt will appear sitting next to you, and he'll offer you half of his blanket and put his hand on your knee and tell you everything is bad, but that's ok. Then you'll see movement in the corner of your ... See full review

Great compilation of original versions, must have, especially since you have to be a wealthy individual to purchase Dutronc's LPs. Why no reissues, dammit?!

posted a review of Nino Ferrer - Nino And Radiah. over 3 years ago
This is an incredibly solid piece of work. "Mint Julep" is a personal fave, although the motorcycle chase effects and murder mystery string section on "Looking For You" probably push it into the top spot as THE cut to send out to the aliens on a silver ... See full review

First off, this may be a Top 10 Album Cover. Of all time. Who wouldn't want to travel to a parallel world with these guys? The one guy is even saluting you. Respect! When's the last time you were saluted by someone that much cooler than you are? This is ... See full review

So Godley & Creme "Consequences" was a fairly interesting disaster, and when I say that I'm not trying to dissuade people from checking it out. That said, this album Freeze Frame is a return to form and basically the lost 10cc album. There is a little ... See full review

I am a huge 10CC fan, HUGE, and I honestly gotta say this is for fans only. Lacks the pizzazz of the incredible 10cc debut with Graham, which is kind of funny considering both Godley and Creme are here in Hotlegs and they're the kooky ones. An ... See full review
