Pascal Comelade – La Catedral D'Escuradents
"Unique music from a unique musician. Comelade is a French/Catalan musician who started in electronic music but for over 30 years has specialized in a personalized music that usually features toy instruments. Using simple tools, he always seems to be able to hit the point of a melody. This is a collection from a decade of his work: 1992-2002, taken from many, many otherwise unavailable recordings. Also of interest is that there's always a few famous guests on his albums. If you enjoy his work (I have for many years) and there are gaps in your collection, then this is a great bet. If you are baffled by a grown man and toy pianos, then you should probably move along..."
