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 !

ALAIN MARKUSFELD (ABO #259)


ALAIN MARKUSFELD
L'ENROULEUR DE GALAXIES

Another great lost talent of rock history. Alain Markusfeld is a marvelous guitarist who made several albums in the seventies but dropped out of business in the early 80s due to a lack of interest to his music. The man didn't even found his audience in his home country, France. His albums are great and gained cult status among most litterate music connoisseur.
From his very beginning with his band Trust (not to be mistaken with French hard rock band Stefan have baistophed some months ago), everyone had witnessed his great talent as an instrumentalist. From electric to acoustic, the guitar seemed to be one with the man. With albums like Platock or Contemporus which feature some great instrumental tunes and great suites like Mike Oldfied could (or should) have done, Markusfeld seems to have a second chance in the blogosphere. Like Gentle Giant for England, Alain Markusfeld may be one of the most underrated French musicians of all time.
Sadly, I've been unable to find any sample of his music so, you'll have to trust me and download this very best stuff to judge for yourself, I'm quite sure you will not be disappointed.
