Roland Bocquet

Paradia (LP)

Label: WRWTFWW Records

Format: LP

Genre: Psych

In stock


LP version. Housed in heavy 350gsm sleeve with holographic sticker. WRWTFWW Records announce the official reissue of Roland Bocquet's highly sought-after solo album, Paradia. Originally released in 1977 on the legendary Cobra label, Paradia is the first solo album by Roland Bocquet, keyboard player for cult French band Catharsis. The (mostly) instrumental album is a wonderful oddball adventure blending cozy ambient, euro-folk, synth escapades, Latin fusion with a French touch, gentle bossa, a tiny bit of minimalist chanson, and a heavy dose of je-ne sais-quoi. The result is soothing, mysterious in the sweetest ways, and fully atmospheric: a must have for fans of Pascal Comelade, Mort Garson, Dominique Guiot, ZNR, Vladimir Cosma, movie soundtracks, library music, and unclassifiable gems.

It's hard to describe, but it's lovely to experience! Paradia, Paradia, Paradiaaaaaaaa... Sourced from the original masters.
