Weekend - La Varieté album FLAC

Weekend ‎– La Varieté. Label: Cherry Red ‎– CDM RED 301. Format: CD, Album, Reissue. La Varieté the French term for popular radio, everything that's not heavy rock; music drawing on diversity and depth. This album is a meeting of songs and improvisations created with other weekenders. Tracks 1-12 mixed and recorded during July - August 1982 at Power Plant Studio Willesden.

Varieté is the fifteenth studio album by the British singer/songwriter Marc Almond. It was released on 7 June 2010 through Strike Force Entertainment, part of Cherry Red Records. Varieté marks Almond's 30th year as a recording artist. It is his first album of original material in nine years.

1 & 2" is a stab at African high life, and "Nostalgia" minus the vocals could be one of U2's early instrumental B-sides. In short, the album is nothing like what you would expect from former Young Marble Giants vocalist Alison Statton, excepting the song "Drum Beat for Baby," which mimics the unique sound of her previous band. Interestingly, Young Marble Giants' main man Stuart Moxham has nothing to do with that track, but he and his brother Phil contribute a couple of compositions, one of which is the Gist's "Carnival Headache. La Varieté is an impressive achievement, but is too stylistically diverse to make much sense, and at times the individual tracks seem like genre exercises. It's a bad sign that "Drum Beat for Baby," a deliberate stylistic throwback, is the strongest cut on the.

Reviews about Weekend - La Varieté (3):
Winotterin
This album is more jazz than rock, I reckon. Not sure of pop rock either. The genre is incorrect I think.
Centrizius
This release with 28-page booklet in color with drawings en lyrics in my collection
Kelerana
The original UK CD release of the highly influential album, featuring Alison Statton, formerly of the Welsh minimalist pioneers Young Marble Giants. A very diverse, listenable album start to finish.
