Joseph Racaille : 6 Petites Chansons

The silent half of the French duo ZNR with a rare 33 rpm 7" issued by Recommended in '83. Spent a whole afternoon cleaning this one up (hope i haven't ruined it)! Short songs in usual tres charmant style with great arrangements, echoing Satie, show-tunes, etc... Racaille is a remarkable character, good news is that i've located some more of his rare solo releases, will post them all in the future.

i love the traité de musique populaire... and had the chance, a few years ago, to listen to a japanese (or some other far eastern country) tombola numbers by racaille (on "france culture/musique").

i'm really curious to listen to this!
