Un Petit Tour Et Puis S'En Vont = 2 CD = (CD)
ANGE is, no doubt about it, the most popular of the French Progressive rock bands. Its music is based on Christian DECAMPS' unmistakable and melodramatic voice, his brother Francis' powerful organ sounds as well as on the development of energetic and intense medieval lines. The line-up invented its own style, both epic and delirious, and that blends madness, emotions and exacerbated feelings. This poetic and typically French rock was noticeable from the band's beginnings in 1969, and then got more formal on "Caricatures", their first album issued three years later. "Le Cimetière Des Arlequins" came out twelve months before the three most appreciated Progressive rock albums of the DECAMPS brothers. "Au-Delà Du Délire" was issued in 1974, "Emile Jacotey" in 1975 and "Par Les Fils De Mandrin" in 1976. Undisputed leaders of the French rock scene in the mid-Seventies, ANGE couldn't be satisfied with only a national success. Of course, foreign audiences appreciated the band, but more for their "exotic" use of the French language than for their true composing talent. Here is then the context that led the band to record "By The Sons Of Mandrin", literal translation of "Par Les Fils De Mandrin" (1976), one of the major albums of their discography. This is then a true peculiarity in ANGE's career. For reasons that got lost and about which only charismatic Christian DECAMPS could tell us about, this album was never released. It remained somewhere in Universal, until the day Musea had the good idea to invest both time and energy to finally get this jewel out of the dark. With the studio album and the recent "En Concert - Par Les Fils de Mandrin Millésimé 1977", here is then a trilogy that all fans have to have in their collection! The excellent live album "Tome VI" (1977) gives the possibility to re-discover the best tracks of this era with the fantastic energy and exuberance showed on stage. Recorded that very year, "Guet-Apens" (1977) includes the epic and almost 14-minute long suite "Capitaine Coeur De Miel". Following the first and the last two mentioned albums, "Vu D'Un Chien" (1980), "Moteur !" (1981), "A Propos De..." (1982) & "La Gare De Troyes" (1983) are available
