Track 1 - Weekee Way

Track 4 - Magnetic School

Track 7 - Double Dream

Track 10 - Contemplation Of The Mountains
Track 11 - Path To Tomorrow

It may be painfully short ( 21 minutes in fact ) but this Bernard Fevre album from 1975 still resonates long after the final note has faded. The tracks here exhibit a melting pot of electronics with undercurrents of funk and disco all contained within short, suspense filled compositions. This combination of elements was Fevre's stock in trade and there is an assuredness to the music which demands attention. This, along with the uncluttered nature of these pieces draws the listener in and hooks them. At least that's what happened with me. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.
