Nuance, France


Nuance - Il est une Legende. 1982 FLVM.

One of the many interesting albums on the private do-it-yourself FLVM label. Despite the 1982 year, the keyboards sound more like 1960s vintage, and there's even some mellotron on the last track. Solid French vocal progressive rock album that fits squarely with others of its ilk like Terpendre, Orion and Pentacle. The guitarist adds a raw psychedelic edge, which I find highly appealing. Definitely an anachronistic sound for 1982. They have 3 later albums, starting in 1986, that are supposedly of lesser interest, though I haven't heard them to be certain of this claim.

Priority: 2

Anon,

I happen to own the LP myself (bought it years ago), and listened to it last night for an update. Nuance was part of my original wish list as far back as 2003. I've owned the album since 1993.

There are a couple of ways I can prove this. How would you like me to do so?

Dear Tom,

Kindly forgive my treachery & any implications of authenticity. in playful reply, might i suggest you rip the album to high quality mp3 [320 is good], compress it in a zip file & upload it to megaupload or another free file hosting service for us? :))))

Hi Jerry,

Thanks for the kind response back. Unfortunately I do not have the time to rip the album.

I will just add that this is an album you will want to buy. I do not think you will be disappointed if you're a fan of French progressive rock.

The current price of that auction is $25. That is a steal in my opinion. If I did not already own it, I would buy it in a heartbeat

Good luck!

- Tom

Tom,
I recently digitized the other two albums I own from them.

Territoires 1989
Reflets 1996 (Released on CD)

I will send you links.
I think they are well worth a listen as well!
