Missing April Orchestra: Slim Pezin & Patrick Bourgoin in Vol. 62's French Groovin' from 1985





Note that Slim Pezin, the guitarist, was in celebrated French fusion supergroup CCCP, where he penned / picked the fabulous song Death of the Spanish Lion.  On the other hand, there is little information to go on for his colleague in this adventure, Patrick Bourgoin.  So curiosity really drove me to have a listen to this missing AO, adding to the fact it was luckily cheap to purchase. Cheap for a reason?  Well, this is of course fuzak of the worst possible kind...  We can't blame the artist/composer, it was the tenor of the times, the zeitgeist, this simplicity that was in vogue, bullying all over the complicated intellectual patterns of novelty that once obtained in the art of popular music...

Have a listen to the first track:

    1. I don't think so. To me, it doesn't sound too appealing. Nonetheless, I understand what you're saying bec certain composers here are strong. Perhaps when I have surplus paypal change.

    3. don't get me started-- I sure hope you're not French-- these French sellers always ship with such long delays, at this time I can't expect a record to arrive from le Coq Gaulois until at least a month has passed... this is getting so aggravating! Is it their postal workers? Why are all the european countries so different? Every German record arrives within one week! I have never even had one late!
