Tangerine – De l’autre cote de la foret…


Tangerine’s first album from 1972 is the full package. From the beautiful cover art to the long-haired pose on the back, you know you are getting something great. And they deliver. One of the few albums that I can say stood up to its cover. Well instrumented psychedelic folk with the tiniest hints of their progressive moves they would employ in their second album, Memorie (which to me was forgettable). Their sparing usage of the flute really takes this album to the next level for me. Most of the songs are sung in French with the exception of three with English lyrics. Valery Btesh, female lead of the French outfit, has a beautiful voice and when accompanied by the men she is complimented rather than shadowed. No duds on this record and if you’re luckily Canadian, keep an eye out for the Gamma pressing. Google translator says the title means “Other dimension of the drill.”
