It seems that a moron (to be polite) have decided to complain to Rapidshare about nearly every LP on my blog, the result is that nearly all the files has been deleted. I'm not the only one, monone and even Jean-Claude Pierric on his wonderful blog seems to have the same problem.
I'm fed up with that kind of shit, it takes time to maintain a blog like this one and time is what i lack the, the links will be back and a new update will appear soon...yes soon...but not right now.

All Stars Orchestra/Manhattan Trio "Joie, All stars mood music selection-imp 05" Impala, 197?

Early seventies split Library LP this week. On the first side, the trumpet player Pierre Sellin and a vocal group named the Heavenly Singers and on the second side, the enigmatic Manhattan Trio, a Jazz trio with piano, drums and electric bass. The first side is particularly interesting, it is filled with delicious Pop tracks with wordless female vocals, it has a marvellous sixties flavor captured in the deepness of its groove
Not much is known about the Impala label, except that it's one of the greatest if you are into obscure french sixties and seventies music Library

If you fell the need for more Impala label records, check the excellent blog of monone for the All stars mood music selection n°4, it is named "Ambiance".
You can also visit agent double-o-soul's blog and download the All stars mood music n°3, better known as Guy Forlane "Pop musique".

See you soon !

Olivier Gallois et son septuor "Nocturnes pour un sax" Fontana, 196?

This week's LP can be best described as "Baroque Easy Listening". There is hardly a trace of this recording or of this artist on the web. When i picked this one i nearly mistook it for the usual sax lead Easy Listening album, the likes of Fausto Papetti, Fausto Danieli...etc, except that all tracks were originals and there was no trace of any pretty girl on the cover. This was enough to arouse my interest.
What i heard when i first listened to it was without a doubt the work of a young artist much more influenced by the classical european tradition of the saxophone than the afro-american one. This record is beautiful in some parts, nearly amateurish in others (when i say "amateurish i'm not talking about the way instruments are played but about the way tracks are arranged by Olivier Gallois himself). All in all, i think that this LP is too heavy on the sax parts but i can't help but have a deep inclination for it, i'm quite sure that the wordless female chorus plays a great part in my appreciation of this record.
I would really like to have feedbacks about what you think of it so, it would be nice if you could drop a line in the comment section of this post.

Next share will be a library LP from the rare Impala label but since i'll be in Italy from next sunday up to the forthcoming saturday, the update will take place at the very end of next week.

See you soon !
