Sub-titled “a voyage across French cosmic and electronic avant-garde (1970-1980)”, this is a great new collection of 70s space music from France. It includes some out and out classics such as Jean-Jacques Perrey’s E.V.A. and Space’s Magic Fly but also some much more obscure treasures such as a track by Francois de Roubaix from a rejected soundtrack for a documentary about Antarctica.
Two tracks from the album, including the Francois de Roubaix track, can be heard on PMB154: Smell the Rainbow.
