Interesting, and very good, folk rock album
from Nantes, an area that traditionally belongs to Brittany, but
administratively falls outside of it. Likewise, Chalibaude's music is
heavily influenced by Celtic culture, but is sung in French. The liner
notes inside the gatefold go so far as to translate the French words
into Breton for the local buying populace. Musically, Chalibaude is
similar to a combination of Malicorne, Gwendal, and Avaric. A fine
progressive folk rock album, that is remarkably consistent without any
major highs or lows.
LP: 1976 Cezame
Originals are housed in a very nice gatefold with lyrics in French and Breton. This is an album I never got around to featuring separately in the CDRWL, though I've owned it since 2003. So here is its much belated debut.
