Maurice Lecoeur - Musiques Pour l'Image LP
Label: Transversales Disques
Maurice Lecoeur could be considered as France's best kept secret composer. Although hardly known outside of "digging-nerds" circles, he produced an incredible number of themes for movies, TV programs and commercials. Inspired by his friend and mentor François de Roubaix, he managed to create his own print, juggling freely with genres, harmonies, tonalities and string arrangements.
This fine compilation gathers together the cream of his 70s-to-mid-80s work; a journey overflowing with pop fantasies, crazy drum-breaks and beautiful orchestral themes. Most of these magnetic tapes are totally unrealeased and could have burned in the terrible fire that devastated Lecoeur's home studio in the early 90's. For fans of Jean Claude Vannier, Michel Colombier, François De Roubaix and Janco Nilovic...
