Laurence Vanay
Les Soleile De La Vie
LP | 1977 | US | Reissue (Lion)
22,49 €* 24,99 € -10%
Release:1977 / US – Reissue
Genre:Rock / Indie
Following the international release of “Evening Colours” in 1976, Jacqueline Thibault (Laurence Vanay) continued to compose songs that she recorded on her multi-track Revox. But she had little time for her own music, working day and night at legendary international recording studio, the Château d’Hérouville. Still, Jacqueline managed to bring together the compositions for “Les Soleils de la Vie” (The Suns of Life), with the help of her perpetual musical accomplices—Serge Derrien (guitar, flute, wordless vocals) and John Chevalier, aka Popov (drums and percussion). There was also the timely intervention of other friends, Michel Santangelli (drums), Jean Claude Guzelli (bass) and Francis Moze. Decca Records was interested in producing the album back in 1977, but asked for a remix of the music. Only several years later was that finally possible—too late for Decca. The recordings therefore found themselves asleep on Parisian shelves, pending potential better days. Shimmering, mysterious, sometimes funky, deeply emotional examples of musical beguilement.

La Petite Fenetre
LP | 1979 | US | Reissue (Lion)
24,99 €*
Release:1979 / US – Reissue
Genre:Rock / Indie
Jacqueline Thibault (Laurence Vanay) often worked for other artists at the legendary Château d’Hérouville studio as arranger, keyboardist, co-composer, and assistant sound engineer. Between sessions she sometimes managed to record her own music. Several years after her two acknowledged masterpieces, "Galaxies" and "Evening Colours," she was able to bring together the tracks for “La Petite Fenêtre” (The Little Window). As the 1970's ended, trouble with the Château finances meant that again it was impossible for her to present her work to interested record labels. Instead, "I worked in another recording studio in Paris for fashionable artists," she said, "and I managed after a time to resume and complete my unfinished songs." By that time, the French record companies were not interested in instrumental music anymore. The recordings therefore found themselves asleep on Parisian shelves, pending potential better days. Sublime compositions: unique, melancholic and very powerful.
Laurence Vanay - Galaxies
Laurence Vanay
LP | 1974 | US | Reissue (Lion)
30,99 €*
Release:1974 / US – Reissue
Genre:Rock / Indie
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.
