The composer Maurice Lecoeur could be considered as France’s best kept secret.
Although hardly known outside of « digging » circles, he produced an incredible number of themes for movies, TV programs and commercials. Inspired by his friend and mentor François de Roubaix, he managed to create his own print, juggling freely with genres, harmonies, tonalities and string arrangements.
This fine compilation gathers together the cream of his 70s-to-mid-80s work ; a journey overflowing with pop fantsasies, crazy drum-breaks and beautiful orchestral themes. Most of these magnetic tapes are totally unreleased and could have burned in the terrible fire that devastated Maurice Lecoeur’s home studio in the early 90’s.
For fans of Francois de Roubaix, Jean Claude Vannier and Janko Nilovic…
