Patrick Gauthier - Bébé Godzilla. 1981 Cy

Remember the collection revisit project? The purpose of that was to feature those albums on this blog. Well I'm definitely listening to the albums most evenings, enjoying each with a nice craft beer. Just not writing about them. Ugh. So I've somewhat missed the point. Typical me...

CD reissues: 1994 Seventh; 2007 Captain Trip (Japan mini LP)

Release details: Not an expensive record, but one you don't see much either. My first exposure to the album was from the Magma owned Seventh release, and I bought it pretty much as it was available. Given the rather typical 80s single sleeve cover, I would think the Japanese CD is unnecessary except for availability reasons. The original CD is long sold out.

Notes: Patrick Gauthier's debut solo album offers up a compendium of the French underground of the late 70's and early 80's. A who's who of French luminaries grace this once in a lifetime effort, lead by keyboardist Gauthier, including Richard Pinhas (Heldon), Christian Vander (Magma), and everyone involved with those legendary groups such as the Zeuhl super band Weidorje. It seems the subversive underground owned the French studios at the time. Too bad they lost control, or at least we think they did. If any band above registers a positive response, then "Bébé Godzilla" will do similar.
