eMusic just added a whole bunch of Jean-Michel Jarre stuff!
I'm not going to link to each CD separately, just to JMJ's page
where you can see the list, and to a few cool ones.
They've added several studio albums: "Rendez-Vous", "Revolutions", and "Oxygène 7-13".
There's also two different Best Of CDs: "Essential Jean-Michel Jarre" and "Images: The best Of Jean Michel Jarre"
And there are two of his live albums: "Jarre Live" and "Jean Michel Jarre En Concert: Houston-Lyon"."Zoolook"
has also been added, but it's listed under "Jean Michel Jarre Tribute Band", eventhough it's JMJ himself.
And the references to remixes are completely spurious. As far as I can tell, this is the normal "Zoolook" album.
I'm pretty pleased they added "Oxygène 7-13"
. It's the retro follow-up to "Oxygène" that he released in 1997.
eMusic messed up and attached the cover art for the original "Oxygène" instead.
They also added "Odyssey Through O2"
, the techno remix album for "Oxygène 7-13". I personally dig it a lot.
That's a not bad little update.
There's still stuff missing, like "Les Concerts En Chine", "Chronologie", "Métamorphoses" (I need that one), "AERO",
"Destination Docklands: The London Concerts" (I need that one too!), "Live From Gdansk" (that one also!),
"Téo & Téa" (and that one), and "En Attendant Cousteau" (which sounds A LOT like Brian Eno's "Thursday Afternoon").
Some of these should turn up soon, especially the ones on the Dreyfus label.
"Téo & Téa" probably won't, as it was released by Warner France.
In another Jarre news, I went looking for the "Oxygène: Live In Your Living Room"
CD/DVD release and found it gone.
It was a limited edition. Argh!!! What's so special about it, you ask? Let me quote Amazon.com:
"Special two disc (CD + NTSC/Region 0 DVD) pressing of the 2007 digitally remastered 30th Anniversary edition
of this influential Electronic album features a bonus 3D DVD that contains a live performance filmed in HD
and Stereoscopic 3D, behind the scenes footage, 5.1 surround sound mix of the album and more."
So, yes, Jean Michel Jarre in your living room, pretty much! :D
(I wonder what that would look and sound like on Auntie selenesue
's giant LCD TV and surround system...)
I was pretty sadfaced about the whole thing, until I checked eBay and found a store in Mexico selling it.
For $19.99 with $2.99 shipping to the US.
And apparently brand new factory-sealed.
I took a chance and bought it.
I'll let y'all know if I get it, and how cool it is.
