Jean Michel Jarre - Early works (1970-1974)

No need for an introduction about Jean Michel Jarre, I think. For those who think he started with Oxygene in 1976,check these recordings.....Excellent stuff and very rare.
In parts reminds me a kind of "light" Heldon in a more psychedelic mood!

Concerning Jean Michel Jarre - Early Works:

What an interesting pre-history, loved hearing this as I was a big fan aroud the 'Oxygene' era. This is garish and raw electronics as 'song form' at it's best, a real treat....thanks ;-)

Excellent! Thanks so much, I have been looking for some of this stuff for a while. I much prefer most of this to Oxygene and later stuff.
How does that early soundtrack Jarre did compare to this? I forget the name of it, but it's from '73.

here is the Jarre album I have been wanting to hear:

(from Wikipedia)

"In 1983, he created the album Musique pour Supermarché (Music for Supermarkets), which had a print run of one single copy. The album was made expressly to voice Jarre's distaste and disregard for the music business. Jarre destroyed all the master records from his studio work, allowed a radio station (Radio Luxembourg) to broadcast the album once and auctioned it, raising £10,000 for French artists. People recorded the album using their tape recorders while it was broadcast on the radio, so they can listen to that album, at a very poor quality though (the radio station was an AM station). Songs from this album were later reworked into future albums."

The early Jarre material is definitely interesting. Quality wise it's all over the map, from excellent to, well... Let's just say Oxygene and Equinoxe were definitely better. Still, it was great to hear most of this material for the first time.
