Audio samples

First ever reissue of this impossible to find private acid-folk album from France, 1972, related to Long Orme and originally released as a tiny pressing on cult Kiosque d’Orphée label (the French Deroy). Recorded by French musician Dominique Droin (later a Gipsy Kings backing musician!) and some friends/musicians at a basement studio, the album has a charming homemade vibe and melancholic atmosphere with a strong UK folk influence (think Donovan, John Renbourn, Bert Jansch or Nick Drake). Beautiful songs in English with acoustic guitars, flute, cello and even full electric backing on the monster 8-minute psychedelic title track.
*Booklet with rare photos and detailed liner notes.
