Vinyl LP pressing. Digitally re-mastered and expanded edition of the French Avant-Garde artist's 1968 album. Rich in the drama she brought to theater, Fontaine synthesized chanson (French pop song) and world music, which eventually won her international acclaim as a performer and collaborator with a variety of artists from around the world (Art Ensemble of Chicago, Sonic Youth and Stereolab, to name just a few). ON EST... FOLLE, Fontaine takes flight over conductor Jean Claude Vanniers brilliant arrangements. Fontaine is adventurous and multi-dimensional with sophisticated lyrics, poignant melodies and enthralling delivery. Such artful handling of meter and rhyme (or lack thereof) is rare in pop song. Far from the eras ye-ye phenomenon, but never fully removed from it's traditions, EST... FOLLE is an essential link in French pop music, exuberantly pushing the genre into more conceptual and experimental sounds.
