After three adventures in the land of Soulful AOR coming from America, « Factory Sealed for Your Protection » choose to join the La French Connection’s direction for a special volume also dedicated to the golden era of French Music. American Music completely inspired french Musicians for long decades, but it was more noticeable starting in the late sixties until the early eighties. We’ve already set the stage earlier introducing some heavy weights from France like Iconic engineers, Bernard Estardy, Dominique Blanc Francard, or Jean Pierre janiaud to name a few, and told you some facts about incredibly gifted cats like Slim Pezin, Jean Pierre Sabar, Jean Shultheis or Gabriel Yared.
One era, one night in a French odyssey and 40 guilty pleasures.
This magnum opus gives you the very best from a simple goal: « America you made us dream, you taught us well, so now here’s what we ( French people) can do with our tools, French language or not »
A fact is interesting in this collection. You will hear two generations of engineers and musicians. A real change of guard well assumed and executed.
You thought that was only gonna be just a boogie affair ? Not at all ! FSFYP (as we did for The LA French connection volumes) demanded more research and a hard diggin to offer you a complete French Aor/soulful/ funky/ discoish and yet Jazzy stuff you ‘ll get elsewhere !
Of course there are many other tracks and artists but you will hold the essential jewels next to your ears. Most of it was brilliantly produced and unfortunately forgotten through time.
This is really a dream come true working on this special edition as it is with my pals from L.F.C.
This time it’s a true homage to our French icons and musical heritage.
As far as Sealed is concerned we broke the rule a little on this one .. due to some extreme rarities ??
Hope you’ll Enjoy it.
