COMME A LA RADIO features vocalist Brigitte Fontaine backed by The Art Ensemble Of Chicago. Import reissue of 1971 album for the French vanguard pop chanteuse & The Art Ensemble Of Chicago. Here, the Art Ensemble provide the perfect mysterious ethereal backdrop for her vocal explorations. With strangely charted arrangements & mixing, the ten tracks here defy any & all conventions & result in the most provocative popular recording of 1971. The entire album runs all over the stylistic map while not adhering to anything but its own strange muse. This is remarkable stuff from a very adventurous time when virtually anything was possible.
