The B-Music of Jean Rollin

(B-Music)
US: 27 Mar 2012

In 1969, there was La Vampire Nue. 1970 brought Le Frisson des Vampires. 1971 saw the release of Requiem pour un Vampire. In 1973 came Jeunes filles impudiques, and in 1979, there was Fascination. All of these films were important in some way and major milestones for the director of the first french vampire film, Jean Rollin. They also all came with unbelievable (and in some cases, iconic) scores. The best of which have been compiled into a definitive album. This album. Most pieces on The B-Music of Jean Rollin are accompanied by the audio tracks from the films themselves, providing a truly immersvie experience. Almost more importantly, this compilation features essential recordings from an impressive range of notable composers from Acanthus to Yvon Gerault. All of the pieces are outstanding and sequenced brilliantly. This is the first Rollin audio compilation but proves The B-Music of Jean Rollin belongs in virtually any respectable music collection.
