FRENCH DISCO BOOGIE SOUNDS 1975-1984: SELECTED BY Vinyl Record
Gatefold double LP version. After the 2014 release of Brazilian Disco Boogie Sounds (FVR 098 CD/LP), French label Favorite Recordings follows up with focus a on it's native language. With assistance from a close connoisseur friend, DJ and collector Charles Maurice presents a fine selection of tracks that, in his estimation, best represent the amazing energy of a specific French movement from 1975 to 1984. With ten rare titles, he paints a perfect picture of what one could find in French record stores at that time. On one hand, tracks by Over Drive, Marché Noir, Didier Makaga, and France Lise were produced by underground artists and labels from the French Caribbean and African community and filled with a raw, tropical spirit. On the other hand, tracks by Beckie Bell, Kelly, Le Club, and Bernard Guyvan were released by major labels such as Trema, Carrere, Disques Vogue, and Pathé Marconi, thanks to confirmed independent producers working not only in France, but also in Canada and the US. Today, Favorite Recordings and Charles Maurice are very proud to shed some light on these gems, and offer them a new life on your turntable. Also includes tracks by Contessa and Toulouse.
