Paul Mauriat - L'Ete Indien

Marseilles-born composer Paul Mauriat is best known for his hit 'Love Is Blue' which hit number 1 in the US charts for 5 weeks in 1968. In a career lasting over 30 years he released more than a hundred albums. This one from 1975 features his trademark harpsichord, but also has leanings toward the funk/disco sound of the time.

This album also wins the inaugural 'Mr Snookles Trophy For Most Artistic Cover' award. If any of our French-speaking readers can translate the title, or indeed the track names, please leave a comment...
