DEAD LINKS

NOTE : DEAD LINKS
We'd like to thank everyone for preventing us of dead links. For the moment, we are note able to re-up them.

Feel free to keep on preventing us of those dead links. We will update them when we (I and Jeb-E-Diah) have more time to (understand : from september). Some of them will be partially or completely repacked considering albums which would have been issued thereafter and surely with new and improved artworks.

Stay tuned !

MICHEL CORRINGE (ABO#131)

MICHEL CORRINGE
ECCE HOMO
(1968-1999)

Michel Corringe is not only unknown abroad but also in France. Only a few people really know the man and his work and it seemed premedited. Born in Tunisy in 1949, he made his life on the road. His songs were often dealing with his life as a vagabond, and his political thoughts, left-winged to anarchist. He real hippy, then. Although a great success with his first LP, he remained in a very confidential business, and sadly died in 2002 in complete oblivion. His albums remain rare and unrereleased (as many RCA albums) at the exception of "La Route" (his first album) which has been reedited this year on Magic Records. Let's hope the other albums will have the same treatment !
For that reason, this compilation is mostly a vinyl-rip compilation (except for his last album Phénix which was only CD-edited), but I hope will enjoy anyway the great talent of Michel Corringe...
As a bonus, a very late pour-sounding song "Le Tango Du Chien" is a demo tape of a song which should have featured on the album Michel was to record. Cancer did not let him finish it...

C'était pour moi une nécessité : il figure chez moi, à égale hauteur des Brel-Ferré-Brassens.

Sa médiatisation et son manque de prolifisme, l'ont empeché d'avoir l'exposition et le prestige national qu'il mérite.

Tu l'auras deviné, mon ami Albert Nonyme, Corringe est pour moi plus qu'un maître es chansons

Prolifisme... C'est un mot ça ?

Ayah Gagöhn said...

oui : c'est une suite de lettres. Et dans la mesure où tout le monde (francophone au moins) est en mesure de le comprendre, néologisme ou pas, c'est un mot.
