There are two versions of this album, I much prefer the second cover which came later. Both are French releases. What an amazingly beautiful and surreal cover painting, as I always like to say, deserving of being in a museum rather than on an utterly forgotten LP... Credit: photo de recto, J. Wyrs. A confusing (and unhelpful?) note, since it's a painting on the recto.
The artist reminds me a great deal of Didier Bonin, posted on the old prognotfrog by myself, and the rips are again by our wonderful friend pollux, who does a professional job of cleaning up these records.
His later albums were quite disappointing to me, as you can see, he went on to library records. The next one, La dame a la licorne, is much too simple and medieval for my tastes. Incidentally, have you seen the tapestry series in the Cluny Museum, Paris, from which this title is based? That medieval museum is simply a shockingly outstanding place to visit.
Again, consider how the beautiful first track, Wind Surf Ballad, should have been a radio hit back in the day, but most definitely, wasn't...
