[CP 252 CD] Colette Magny, André Almuro; "Avec" Poème, Poésie De CruautéCreel Pone
CP 252 CD
One of the longest-suffering titles in the C.P. "Queue" (mainly as a copy of the original edition has eluded all of us, for over a decade) is this astonishing 1966 collaboration between canonic Avant-Garde chanteuse Colette Magny (whose two Chant Du Monde titles, "Feu et Rythme" & "Répression" feature the legendary French Free Jazz rhythm section of Barre Phillips & Beb Guerin along w/ François Tusques & are all-time bonafide classics in the chansonnerie-meets-freedom genre) and Electro-Acoustic composer André Almuro (a name that should be known to you via his two Boîte A Musique titles replicated as CP 067 & 097 respectively) issued in 1966 by Mouloudji (on his eponymous vanity label; in a miniscule edition, natch) as EMZ 13510.
As a bonus, this replica edition also includes Almuro's "Poésie De Cruauté" collection (also issued on Disques Mouloudji, EMZ 13514, 1966) featuring three of his own texts alongside those by Antonin Artaud, Jean Genet, Jean Cocteau, Olivier Larronde, & Federico García Lorca over/alongside Almuro's desiccated, wraith-strewn Electronic landscapes & even a few solo-Electronic numbers. Aside from Almuro's reading of Jean Genet's "Le Condamné À Mort" (ditto, Mouloudji, EMZ 13518, 1966) which was reissued both on LP & CD via the Bourg label (get in touch; I think I still have a handful of copies lying around) this should complete the remaining pieces of the Almuro puzzle, for now...
