Too many participants on this french label Illusion Production compilation to comment on each track (except: I love the Picky Picnic!). Genres ranges from the found speech – usually from TV – to the harmony choir, from the heavily processed voices to the declamatory. All in all, the song format was favored by most participants, contrary to sound poetry, a genre which wasn’t hip at the times and not the cup of tea of this specific label. 32 pages b&w booklet included, with visual elements from a french 1977 newspaper and some illustrations from the french Bazzoka group of artists. Enjoy.
