Ame Son "Catalyse"{France}[1970](Progressive)

1970 French Gatefold Original. Ame Son Were One Of The Earliest Prog Bands To Cross-Polinate Free Jazz With Psychedelic Music, Especially On Their Full-Length "Catalyse," Released In 1970. Many Tracks Begin In An Avant Free-Form Jam That Eventually Develop Into More Structured Song And Rhythm, With Lyrics In Either French Or English, And Then Slips Back Into Another Wild Free-Form Freak-Out. Prominent Flute, Drugged-Out Vocals, And Fuzzed-Up Electric Guitar Lend This A Definite Late-'60s Underground Vibe, Though Because Of The Originality Of The Material And The Quality Of Musicianship, It Doesn't Sound Dated Like Similar Releases From That Era. Regarded By Connoisseurs Of The Genre As A Masterpiece.

The classic LP by French prog quartet formed from members of Daevid Allen's
"Bananamoon" outfit. Originally released in 1970, these long spacey jams have
obvious Gong influences.

Playing Time : 48:45

Interestingly, the track 04 - Reborn This Morning On The Way Of...,Unity has a second in the Flute intro which is 19 seconds into the song and is taken from The Man Band song Poella Puella which is on the Revelation album. So I included that song in case anyone wanted to check. Whether this means that Francois Garrel was on that album I dont know. Any information would be gratefully received.
