Art Zoyd 3 = Papersleeve = (CD)
Art Zoyd's early and great works have been unavailable for such a long time that it's too easy to forget what a strikingly original and amazing band they were in their prime. One of the original R.I.O bands (they joined in the second wave of bands, along with Art Bears and Aksak Maboul, if my failing R.I.O.-memory serves me correctly), they also had early ties with Univers Zero, which are quite apparent on this album. This is the 'least' of the albums being reissued here, but this is also the most interesting, because this reissues for the very first time the very first album by Art Zoyd, recorded in 1976 and released in a tiny edition of 500 and which has been out of print for 30 years. I am not a big vinyl collector, but there are a few high dollar albums that I bought because I *really* wanted to own them, and this is one of them. This is by a stripped down version of the band: Alain Eckert-guitar, Gerard Hourbette-violin and viola, Jean-Pierre Soarez-trumpet and Thierry Zaboitzeff-bass. While it doesn't reach the unbelievable heights of the other albums being discussed here, it's a pretty remarkable achievement for 1976. This is a beautifully done Japanese mini-lp sleeve edition of this band and this edition is the only way to buy it; it is not in print in any other form on CD. This also includes 3 interesting bonus tracks: Both side of their first release - a single(!) from 1969, by a completely different cast of musicians than who is on the album and a live track from 1972. Again, while this is the lesser of all these older albums, it is in no way 'bad'. Japanese papersleeve.
