Editor's note: by no means is this a world-changing record but it is one of those niche albums that takes hit records and buries their uniqueness in generic, mass-marketed and no-named talent and we are very thankful for it. Plus, it has a cheesecake album cover with a play-for-pay eye candy hooker selling you more crap that you don't need. But it turns out that you do need it after all.

I like the sound of this band. Especially the wordless vocals in Nuages, very ethereal.
Thanks for sharing.

It still amazes me the amount of quality records that were put out in the 1950s and '60s that hardly anybody listened to. I mean this stuff was throwaway fodder back then and it beats most of the crap coming out today.
