Rhesus O - s/t. 1971 France


Rhesus O - s/t. 1971 Epic

CD reissue: 1996 Musea

Packaging details: I once had the original LP, but it wasn't a very good copy and played with considerable background noise. The Musea CD is excellent as usual with complete liner notes and photos. And that is what I currently own.

Notes: Rhesus O are most notable for featuring future Magma bassists Francis Moze and Bernard Paganotti. Most of the compositions open with a tight structure, and a strong melodic quotient (which is where the Canterbury comparisons come from), while featuring loose jazz solo segments in the middle. The longer the track, the more noisy the jazz segments become. I prefer the shorter pieces under 5 minutes myself.
