TOTAL ISSUE-S/T, LP, 1971, FRANCE



This throat-lump-inducing psychedelic pop masterpiece effects such a flawlessly dewy eyed demeanor, you'd have to be made of stone to not get some sorta frisson from having this caress your ear canals. Countrymates Ame Son could be considered a touchstone for the breed of psych pop into low-key acid rock perfected by Total Issue and so too could the whole school of sanguinely playful methodologies that Gong ushered in with their presence in the French scene. One of the lost classics of France's early 70's underground.

None of these new massmirror links seem to be working at all - is it just me or is everybody else having the same problem?

Wow ! What a gem !
Thanks a lot.
They also issued a single with their
original singer Jean Pierre Huser.
It's called "Hauteville"
Any chance to find it here one day ?

This is totally mellowing my harsh. Very nice, and sounds very similar to Ame Son. Haven't heard the Aleph though!

Thanks for the upload!

Excellent release with a cool mix of styles, very prog at times but back to the lite psych pop at times too for a good surprise. I love the "Fantastic Planet" wah-wah that it goes into at times. ANyway, thanks for sharing!

I've loved this album since I got hold of a copy in Jamaica. I wish i could get my hands on the singles as well (some post-album,. with a slightly different line-up), but they're hideously expensive.

Hi Mutant world since 1971 is my all time favorite year, I collect everything from this year, records, girls born this year , and whatever else has this year on it movies etc. I think I will let my hair down and let my freak flag fly. this I hope is every hippies dream, if it aint hippie it aint good so im ready to mutate back into 1971 and become a hippie. I will let you know how it went once I blow my mind on this one. thanks again I hope I dont die listening to this one never knows
