le Seigneur Rochereau
ISA 1970

Rochereau, label

Rochereau, achterkant detail

Het was in oktober 2011 dat ik Rochereau à l’Olympia heb geplaatst.
Het viel me toen al op dat de zogenaamde live elpee in feite een studio
opname betrof waar later publiek gejoel en applaus tussen was gemixed.
Een deel van de nummers die op deze plaat stonden komen eigenlijk
van de epee die we vandaag hebben. Hij is opgenomen in Parijs in
december 1970. In 1971 heeft ‘african’ de gemixte versie uitgebracht.
Op dit origineel zijn de nummers in kortere versies uitgefaded en op
de andere zijn wat echo-effecten gebruikt om het live gevoel te faken.

It was in october 2011 when I posted Rochereau à l’Olympia . It was
already quite clear from that moment that something was wrong and
that the so called live album was in fact a studio recording on which
they had mixed live audience sound in a later stage. The record we
have today contains a bunch of tracks used to make this one .
Today’s album was recorded in Paris in 1970 and ‘african’
produced the other in 1971. On this original the numbers
have been faded into shorter versions where on the faked
live version echo-effects were used to give it a live-feel..

        I thought it ran out of the shops because you don’t see these types of albums anymore even on the CD and Lp website.
