Ame Son -1970 Primitive Expression Psych Avant Jazz France

This second effort by the legendary French prog band Ame Son gathers archival material from different periods of the band's existence. One piece, "Sweet Georgia," even dates back to the mid-'60s pre-Ame Son group, the Primitivs, and with its conventional British rock sound is the weakest track on the album. The rest is quite excellent, from catchy but loopy "Le Grand Cirque de la Lune" from 1969 (pre-Catalyse) to the live "Le Dedale" from 1976, where Jacques Dudon's open-tuned lead guitar lends an exotic oriental sound. The real stunner is a six-part instrumental version of "Je Veus Juste Dit" (or "I Just Want to Say") stretched out to a 26-minute space jam. The melody, more relaxed than the earlier versions, becomes less and less recognizable as each section progresses deeper into the cosmos, the closest they come to the freak-out free form of Catalyse.

This album is surprisingly great and obviously influenced in some way by Allen and Gong. There are some long and spacey tracks that seem to jam forever.
