GEORGES DELERUE'S FIRST 45 RPM RECORDS

Music composed and conducted by Georges Delerue


Release date :  01-2012 • CD OUT OF PRINT - AVAILABLE DIGITALLY

We are pleased to reissue once again some of early Georges Delerue's recordings that were still unavailable on digital support. The specialized labels based in France have overlooked the early extended 45 rpm records in their various compilations devoted to the composer, keeping only one track from Les Jeux de l’amour and two from Le Farceur and Une aussi longue absence. In addition, our program includes Le Bel âge, Une Fille pour l'été (A Girl for the Summer) and Marche ou crève (March or Die).

These EPs - extended plays - offered the core of the music heard in the feature film : about ten minutes usually spread over four tracks. Their content in entirety deserved to be preserved. 

Classical oriented compositions that bear the distinctive Delerue stamp alternate here with popular dances, cool jazz and blues pieces, fields in which the maestro from Roubaix excelled but was not specializing in, unlike many of his colleagues : Alain Goraguer, Serge Gainsbourg, Michel Legrand, Georges Garvarentz, Martial Solal and Michel Magne, to name only a few. 12-page booklet.
