This is a post on behalf of E-mile.
Let us read what he says about this recording and how he came to post it:
Well, I made a mess of things...
also way back in the days when I recorded
Memory doesn't serve me well, but it seems I rented
the CD version of the Jean-Louis Mechali album...
Not the vinyl.
A TDK cassette 90 minutes is 45 minutes A+B each.
I would program the CD-player in order to get as close
to those minutes as I could.
In other words: I didn't tape the whole darn thing!
If you want to hear all of this, spend at least 18 euro's
and try to obtain this CD:
This is the original CD version's tracks:
3.4:19 dream-ambulation dans la ville blanche
5.4:28 villa les mimosas
6.8:50 la grive ... envine
7.4:59 la criee
8.2:43 big bang
9.5:37 ballade a contre-jour
10.2:48 tamaris marine
11.3:27 la galerie aux portraits
12.4:46 night light + halflight
13.2:34 the underdog
14.3:47 derive de chaleur
15.3:42 le fil du temps
This is what is on the LP version (without the 2nd set):
A1 Halogène 4:28
A2 Ballade À Contre Jour 5:33
A3 Villa Les Mimosas 4:25
A4 Big Bang 2:41
