Music You Don't Know You Like Yet
2010-02-20In 1967, three frustrated French record label executives decided to start their own label. The acronym, BYG, became its name. This is a compilation of the many artists they produced until the label's demise in 1975. This release is full of French psych-rock and early prog-rock. The booklet included with the disc is full of fun history. Many of the artists later became synonymous with bands you may be familiar with such as Soft Machine, Vangelis, Serge Gainsbourg, Procul Harum, and Don Cherry. Some of the production here sounds a bit dated and the music itself certainly sounds like the era from which it came; but this is fun stuff and it's just weird enough to hold my interest.
