Souffle Continu is very excited to present two special vinyl editions of live recordings of French heavy space prog band Heldon -- this 1975 recording and Live in Paris 1976 (FFL 008LP). This historic recording documents one of the rare Heldon concerts of the mid '70s era. Formed at the time of guitar loop master Richard Pinhas (Mellotron, ARP 2600 synthesizer, AKS, and guitars) and Alain Renaud (guitar and analog keyboards), Heldon deliver five tracks of guitar freak-out melded with hypnotic synth themes. Never before released on vinyl. Pressed on mixed blue and white vinyl; presented in 350g sleeve with obi strip. Limited to 1000 copies.
"Like an inhuman mix of Tangerine Dream's otherworldly journeys into space and time and the finely tuned brawn of The Mahavishnu Orchestra, not to mention featuring practically orgasmic guitar solos that would make Makoto Kawabata blush... building blocks for whole schools of experimental rock music, and one of the few who rarely fail to deliver on the hype." --Pitchfork
