Georges Grunblatt - K-Priss. 1980 France

Georges Grunblatt was an early runnin' buddy of a one Richard Pinhas, and basically represented one half of Heldon on the first 3 albums. On K-Priss, he gathers all of Heldon's alumni, for what would appear to be Heldon VIII. It's not Heldon, but definitely a hybrid of late 70s French synthesized slickness with rip-roarin' guitar rave-ups from Richard Pinhas, and pounding drums from Auger. Like a more energetic Ose, if that makes any sense. Grunblatt for his part turns in some fine piano work. Recorded in 1977, but not released until 1980. Good one.

Personal collection
LP: 1980 Ramses / Polydor

No legit CD reissues exist as I update this post from the CDRWL (with a fresh listen). There is, however, a legit LP reissue on Gonzai.
