Wapassou – Messe en re Mineur. 1976 France

Wapassou – Messe en re Mineur. 1976 Crypto

Other Wapassou featured albums on the UMR

CD reissues: 1994 Musea; 2009 Belle Antique (Japan mini-LP)

LP reissue: 198? Omega Studio

Release details: Single sleeve cover and relatively common in Europe. I started with the Omega LP but sold it after getting the CD. I picked up the original in recent years, and it wasn't expensive. The liner notes of the Musea CD are only in French. On the plus side, the CD has the photos and great sound (but no bonus tracks).

Notes: Wapassou clearly establish their patented sound here, progressing on from their debut album, which we've already featured. All the same, I still love the amateurish charm of the first one. That said, Messe en re Mineur is an atmospheric gem, with loads of echoed violin and gorgeous wordless female voice.
