Laurence Vanay is the pseudonym for JACQUELINE THIBAULT, wife of music producer and musician Laurent Thibault (Magma). Her debut album Galaxies (1974) is pure genius: almost all instrumental, with gorgeous keyboards of many types, acoustic/electric guitar, even a little Zeuhl bass. There are wordless vocals on many of the tracks, although she occasionally sings in a soft, seductive manner. Incredible, spacey "avant-garde progressive chanson," a Holy Grail for most collectors of '70s underground French music. Rivaled only by the early work of Brigitte Fontaine for pure inventiveness. An album of inconspicuous, sincere beauty and a masterwork of the french progressive folk scene. Sublime compositions: unique, melancholic and very powerful. First ever reissue, remastered from the original master tapes. Exact replica LP reissue of the mega rare 1974 original issue. LP edition on 180 gram vinyl, with full color, four-panel insert. Packaged in old-style tip-on gatefold jackets, limited to 500 copies.
