The scene is France of the early to mid 1970s, which was a time of upheaval and expensive oil. The music of Dirty French Psychedelics is a sensuous mix of psychey instrumental flourishes and poppity vocals. This beguiling disc is the work of Paris’s much admired dirty crew, who are known for their flair when it comes to picking music for their Diamonds, Edits and Space Disco. Winners here include Nino Ferrer’s awesome Looking For You, Christophe’s dramatic Sunny Road To Salina and Karl Heinz Schaefer & Arabian’s string driven Utopia. dirty have done themselves proud with this brilliant collection from an inventive musical period.
