apart from confirming we have largely old fart taste in musique. this tread is mostly great and I have listened to most of it and still have more to check out.
no Magma here yet so ...
De Futura (1977) live in studio on French TV. Janick Top who wrote this had left by this stage but otherwise this is monumental. destroys the studio version.

perhaps my favourite discovery from the early days of youtube, before I had broadband.

France has a long history of organ music going back to at least the 17th Century. A bunch of the French baroque composers were very active on the organ, mostly the Couperins (cause there were at least two of those lads) and Jean-Philippe Rameau, who would have initially been taught music by his da who was an organist at churches for 40+ years. Also that was back in the days of the Sun King, who was mad into music and pretty much started professional music society in France.
cheers to Cormcolash and hiadudaid? for suggestions.

Bit of a cheat as April March is an American, but half the album is sung in French & it has cool stylish, retro futuristic production by Bertrand Burgalat.
