Press Release from Music Box:
In collaboration with Amplitude, Missy Music and Éditions Saravah, Music Box Records presents a 3-CD set featuring seven French soundtracks composed between 1979 and 1994: Pleure pas my love (Do Not Cry My Love), L’Homme de ma vie (The Man of My Life) and Tous les jours dimanche (Seven Sundays) all three composed by Raymond Alessandrini, Joy and Joy & Joan both composed by François Valéry, La Trace (The Trail) co-composed by Nicola Piovani & Marc Perrone and Au revoir…à lundi (Bye, See You Monday) co-composed by Lewis Furey & Jean-Daniel Mercier.
This fifth volume puts the spotlight on romanticism and eroticism. The first disc is dedicated to Raymond Alessandrini with three of his scores and features a delightful assortment of symphonic and jazzy compositions bolstered by catchy melodies and rich orchestration. The second disc focuses on a couple of electropop scores from legendary sexploitation films of the '80s, both composed by François Valéry, a French singer-songwriter who distinguished himself on the one hand in pop songs but also in film music. The third disc also highlights the romantic spirit of this box set with traditional folk music and typical pop sonorities of the 1970s.
This remastered 3-CD box set includes a 16-page booklet with liner notes by Nicolas Magenham, discussing the films and the scores. The release is limited to 350 units.
