|Recorded in Paris, France in 1957. Includes original liner notes by Boris Vian and reissue liner notes Piet Schruders. All tracks have been digitally remastered.
CD reissue of the legendary vinyl album with which French composer/arranger André Popp explored the boundaries of audio technology back in 1957. Old tunes like 'La Paloma' and Beer Barrel Polka' were reinvented by way of weird orchestrations and sound effects. The result: a milestone of musical creativity." Utilizing half-speed, double speed and backwards recording techniques, for trombones, vocals, vibraphones, flutes, saxes, trumpets, tape delay, accordion, etc. Following swiped from the pen of Johan Kugelberg!: "This record is the créme de la créme of fucked up musique concrete/easy listening records. Any avant garde tape manipulation technique to known to man in the late 50s is utilized to the fullest extent of the law of ridiculousness."
