Because Music reissues on LP (with bonus CD format added) the 1977 album Cerrone's Paradise by Marc Cerrone. The cover of Cerrone's previous album was part of it's success. It's strange atmosphere, it's surrealistic aspect, it's erotic staging and it's playfulness made it a classic of disco imagery. The cover was banned in the United States, who was always more prudish than France or Europe. Cerrone struck again with an even more erotic, direct and less ambiguous cover Actually, it was a matter of chance. Looking for a visual idea for the cover of his new album, the musician went through some photographers' portfolios and found this scene he liked: A fridge, a girl, a cold-tiled floor. The craziness of the picture came from the fact that the girl was lying on the fridge. He decided to ask the photographer to take the same picture with him on the side. But during the shoot, the door of the fridge opened and a yogurt fell out and spilled onto the floor. Cerrone asked the photographer to keep on shooting and despise conflicting advice, he chose the photo with the "ambiguous" white traces of yogurt. It would boost the fantasy. Was it cocaine? Something more sexual? It's still one of Cerrone's most identifiable record covers. And what about the record? After the simulated orgasm of Love in C Minor, Cerrone wished to move onto serious stuff. Rather than using tapes, he organized an orgy in a studio full of microphones set to record every single aural detail. The album followed in the footsteps of the first one, with a long track on the A-side and a few shorter tracks on the B-side. It was another massive hit, selling three million copies. Pressed on solid white vinyl + CD. Includes a 4-page 30cm x 30cm poster-booklet with photos and biographic notes.This package also includes a CD.
