1982 UK 2LP Gatefold Original With Custom Inner Sleeves. Both LPs Appear Glossy, Unplayed. “Jean-Michel Jarre Performed A Handful Of Concerts In Peking And Shanghai In 1981, Marking The First Time That A Modern Western Musical Artist Had Played In Communist China. Sensing The Historical Importance Of The Event (And The Career Milestone It Represented), A Double Album Of Live Music From These Concerts Was Released The Following Year As Les Concerts En Chine. The Release Is Half Musical Travelogue (Featuring New Pieces Presumably Inspired By China) And Half Career Retrospective, With Faithful Reproductions Of Excerpts From Equinoxe And Les Chants Magnetiques (Magnetic Fields) Interspersed With New Works And Snippets Of Chinese Dialogue. There Has Always Been A Strong Visual Component To Jarre's Live Shows, Which The Listener Is Left Out Of On These Recordings (Small Pockets Of Applause During Some Of The Songs Allude To The Graphic Goings-On), But Even Without The Lights And Lasers This Is Engaging Stuff. Highlights From The Show Include "Jonques De Pecheurs Au Crepuscule" (Fishing Junks At Sunset), A Welcome Respite From Jarre's Ultra-Modern Music That Features A Traditional Oriental Arrangement, And New Works Like "Arpegiateur" And "Nuit A Shangai" That Compare Favorably With The Brisk, Streamlined Sound Of Tangerine Dream In The Early ‘80s.” Dave Connolly, AMG.
