Laurence Vanay – Des eclats de lune (Galaxies bonus) (1975 Female French Folk Jazz Rock Experimental)

Laurence Vanay - Des eclats de lune (Galaxies bonus) (1975 Female French Folk Jazz Rock Experimental)Laurence Vanay is the pseudonym for Jacqueline Thibault, wife of producer and musician Laurent Thibault (Magma). Her debut album “Galaxies” (1974) is pure genius: almost all instrumental, with gorgeous keyboards of many types, acoustic/electric guitar, even a little Zeuhl bass. There are wordless vocals on many of the tracks, although she occasionally sings in a soft, seductive manner. Incredible, spacey “avant-garde progressive chanson,” a Holy Grail for most collectors of 70’s underground French music. Rivaled only by the early work of Brigitte Fontaine for pure inventiveness. An album of inconspicuous, sincere beauty and a masterwork of the French progressive music scene. Sublime compositions: unique, melancholic and very powerful.

•First ever reissue
•Remastered from the original master tapes.

“Since childhood, I improvised and composed songs and instrumental music… it seemed to me that music was the true language of emotions. It was with great difficulty that I managed to record the albums “Galaxies” and “Evening Colours” in very limited time with the means at hand, and with the help of faithful musician friends.” —Jacqueline Thibault.
