From the Manufacturer

Music Box Records is pleased to present on the same CD two original motion picture soundtracks composed by Pierre Bachelet: Le Dernier Amant romantique and French TV mini-series Capitaine X.

For Le Dernier Amant romantique, Bachelet's music is both situated well within the times, with its disco tempos and synths typical of the 1970s (especially for the title song Romantic Lover). The scenes where the relationship between the image and the music has without doubt the most force are those that depict the world of the circus and in which Bachelet often utilizes anxiety-provoking synthesizers contrasting with these images from another age, which at the same time, curiously, adhere perfectly with them. For other scenes, Bachelet composes nostalgic themes that are more melodious, while preserving throughout a disconcerting and almost limping aspect, which recall certain pieces by Francis Lai done for Claude Lelouch.

This edition also presents for the first time on CD the original soundtrack to the spy series Bruno Gantillon's Capitaine X, aired on the French television in 1983. The score showcases in large part original jazz music and romantic tracks.

Music Box Records, in collaboration with Gruppo Sugar, presents both scores for the first time on CD and transferred from the original stereo master tapes. The limited edition of 500 copies comes with an 8-page booklet with French and English commentary by Nicolas Magenham.
