Live In Paris – 14-15 Octobre 1958

Bill Haley & His Comets - Live In Paris – 14-15 Octobre 1958

Bill Haley & His Comets were the rst ever rock stars that came to sing and play in France. As the American musicians begged the audience to sit down, so as to be able to carry on playing, their two, long-awaited Paris shows reached unimaginable heights. Bruno Blum tells how, with extraordinary energy and very fast tempos, The Comets electrified the legendary Olympia beyond all expectations. In the darkest hours of the Algerian crisis, this exceptional document shows the cathartic power of a new music, that, for the rst time, allowed young French people to unwind at a major rock concert. Patrick FREMEAUXThe Live in Paris collection by Michel BrilliE allows listeners to hear previously-unreleased recordings (made at concerts and private- or radio-sessions) by the great 20th stars in jazz, rock & roll and song. These “live” takes, and the artists’ rapport with their audiences, gives these performances an additional soul and sensibility in counterpoint to the rigorous demands of studio recordings. Particular care was taken when restoring the sound of these tapes in order to meet CD standards while preserving the original colours of the period. Patrick FREMEAUX & Gilles PETARD
