VRAIMENT EN COLÉRE VOLUMES 1 & 2 (1980)
In 1980 Franco et TPOK Jazz released the two volume classic 'Vraiment En Colére'. Like so many of their classic recordings these seminal recordings were never released on CD in their original track listing. Instead they were separated into 3 separate compilations alongside tracks from other albums released around the same time.
But great as the music on these compilations is. there's nothing like listening to it in the original sequence as they were intended to be heard. Sonodisc's policy of mixing tracks from albums may have made economic sense but it butchered great masterpieces. Imagine mixing half of The Beatles Sgt Peppers record with some of the White Album and Revolver and never releasing those albums individually. This is what Sonodisc continually did with the legacy of Franco et TPOK Jazz.
So here you can find the two original volumes of 'Vraiment En Colére' as they were meant to be heard. The final track of the collection, 'BOLINGO YA MOITIE MOITIE', is our own personal favourite, it contains a truly magnificent sebene. All the tracks are brilliant though. TPOK Jazz at the height of their powers..........
