Limited vinyl LP repressing of this classic 1973 Space-Age Pop soundtrack from the long-time Serge Gainsbourg collaborator. Animated sci-fi masterpiece LA PLAN?TE SAUVAGE (a.k.a. FANTASTIC PLANET), winner at Cannes Film Festival in 1973, is a bizarre and beautiful film. Towering blue-skinned figures, tiny humanoids in the midst of revolt, and drug-induced Tantric sex transport viewers to a truly magical setting. Composer Alain Goraguer creates an equally hypnotic score from a palette of effects-laden guitars, flutes, Fender Rhodes and strings. While the lush arrangements are reminiscent of Goraguer's collaborations with Serge Gainsbourg in the 1960 's, Space-Age synth flourishes suggest a more Psychedelic era. Moody vignettes flow together in tense, slow-paced Funk rhythms and Baroque textures. Gorgeous, interplanetary sounds-capes resemble the surreal meeting point between Pink Floyd's OBSCURED BY CLOUDS and Broadcast's FUTURE CRAYON. This long out-of-print vinyl release features the original soundtrack recording and newly designed artwork. Recommended for fans of Ennio Morricone, Basil Kirchin and David Axelrod.
