How about the sound of this reissue ? It's the cheapest one but I want to be sure the sound quality is not bad (not an audiophile tho)

Clearly one of the strongest album on Tele Music. Only great music from start to finish, no filler. Check out "Pop Vibes", "Vitesse Illimitée", "Vibraphone Crescendo", "Soleil Dans L'Oeil", "A Pas De Velours"... All the album is completely great. Superb ... See full review

This record is a pure beauty. One of the strongest free jazz from Polan I've ever heard. Splendid from start to finish. And also really rare, don't hesitate to buy a copy as this record is really hard to find.

A beautiful occitan record and probably in my all-time top 10 favorite records of occitan folk...
posted a review of Cecil Wary - World News. 3 months ago
Very, very good library record. Michel Gonet under the alias of Cecil Wary goes very dramatic with this kind of music, it's full of tension and as often with him, pretty slow. The drums are insane on this, just check out Political Confrontation. It also ... See full review

Excellent switz jazz fusion / free funk 84' record. Every track is great, it's a strong record and for the moment it's not expensive. Go buy it

A very good EP of folkloric field recording by Yves Mahuzier on Kiosque d'Orphée. Probably a soundtrack for a documentary, there's some very great songs with vocals or acoustic instruments.
posted a review of Various - Stereo Ultra Volume 3. 4 months ago
"Cheap" way to find some great cult Tele Music tracks compiled on a quality double LP. There's also a few remixes from the 90s. Great liners notes too.

One of my favourite Media Music records from my collection. Hard to find but worth the research. Jazz-funk tracks meets bossa vibes, there's some dope loops to sample or just to listen. A short album but good from A to Z !
posted a review of Various - April Orchestra Vol. 37. 4 months ago
Killer. No other words than a killer prog and jazz rock library. Excerpts from prog czechoslovakian records, for a very under-rated record on April Orchestra. Check out Impactissimo. Could be the czechoslovakian side of the April Orchestra 7.

One of my favourite jazz releases of 2018. Perfect album from start to finish, it reminds me of Alain Goraguer (especially cult Fantastic Planet OST) or a bit of De Roubaix. What a lineup with chords, trumpets, guitar...

An obscure minimal tech house record released privately in 2005 (unique release from the label Blablarecords). One of my favourite micro-house record to listen to.

Strong french 80s jazz-funk record, sometime it reminds me of Godchild cult record on Les Tréteaux.

Rare children project from french primary school, great tunes like the electro-rap song "Rap Loufoque" with vocoder and voice modifications... Really need to find a copy of this record.
