Artist: VANAY, LAURENCE
Title: Evening Colours
Format: LP
Label: Lion Productions
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
“Laurence Vanay is the pseudonym for Jacqueline Thibault, wife of music producer and musician Laurent Thibault (Magma). The first ever reissue of her second album, originally released twice in 1975: a version on Galloway credited to fictitious English band Gateway, and once as a CAM label library LP—and incredibly rare in both incarnations. Pure genius: almost all instrumental, with gorgeous keyboards of many types (Hammond, Fender Rhodes, etc.), acoustic/electric guitar, even a little Zeuhl bass. Shimmering, dewy, mysterious, deeply emotional examples of melancholic musical beguilement; anyone with an affinity for golden age 4AD bands like the Cocteau Twins or Dead Can Dance will find much to love here, not to mention devotees of trip-hop pioneers like Portishead. A devastating high-fashion follow-up to the legendary "Galaxies". First ever reissue, remastered from the original master tapes. CD edition comes with 24-page booklet and ten bonus tracks. Rare photos and Jacquelines remarkable story." - Lion Productions. Limited to 500 copies.

"Since childhood, I improvised and composed songs and instrumental music... it seemed to me that music was the true language of emotions. It was with great difficulty that I managed to record the albums “Galaxies” and “Evening Colours” in very limited time with the means at hand, and with the help of faithful musician friends." —Jacqueline Thibault.

Artist: VANAY, LAURENCE
Title: Galaxies
Format: LP
Label: Lion Productions
Country: Italy
Price: $26.00
"Laurence Vanay is the pseudonym for Jacqueline Thibault, wife of producer and musician Laurent Thibault (Magma). Her debut album Galaxies (1974) is pure genius: almost all instrumental, with gorgeous keyboards of many types, acoustic/electric guitar, even a little Zeuhl bass. There are wordless vocals on many of the tracks, although she occasionally sings in a soft, seductive manner. Incredible, spacey avant-garde progressive chanson, a holy grail for most collectors of 70s underground French music. Rivaled only by the early work of Brigitte Fontaine for pure inventiveness. An album of inconspicuous, sincere beauty and a masterwork of the French progressive folk scene. Sublime compositions: unique, melancholic, and very powerful. Exact replica reissue on 180 gram vinyl, with full color, four-panel insert. Comes in an old-style, tip-on gatefold jacket. Remastered from the original master tapes." - Lion Productions.

Artist: VANAY, LAURENCE
Title: La Petite Fenetre
Format: LP
Label: Lion Productions
Country: France
Price: $24.00
"Jacqueline Thibault (Laurence Vanay) often worked for other artists at the legendary Château dHérouville studio as arranger, keyboardist, co-composer, and assistant sound engineer. Between sessions she sometimes managed to record her own music. Several years after her two acknowledged masterpieces, Galaxies and Evening Colours, she was able to bring together the tracks for La Petite Fenêtre (The Little Window). As the 1970s ended, trouble with the Château finances meant that again it was impossible for her to present her work to interested record labels. Instead, I worked in another recording studio in Paris for fashionable artists, she said, and I managed after a time to resume and complete my unfinished songs. By that time, the French record companies were not interested in instrumental music anymore. The recordings therefore found themselves asleep on Parisian shelves, pending potential better days. Sublime compositions: unique, melancholic and very powerful. First ever release of these late-70s recordings! Six-panel color insert with rare photos and Jacquelines remarkable story. Limited to 500 copies, housed in a deluxe tip-on jacket." - Lion Productions.
