3 and a half stars out of 5 ain't bad.

But he clearly isn't a fan of JMJ anymore.

Most of the review is about himself, next to nothing to the music.
And I can't think of anything more cheesy (musically and visually) than the first Ghostbuster movie, which he tends to like a bit more (4 stars).

I prefer that to Saturday Night Fever, which he also gave 4 out of 5.

Transposed from E to C? SoC is in C minor. Nevertheless, the chords are all wrong.

Anyone in possession of the first concert broadcast?
I remember one guy had a website with original broadcast and remaster, but it;s long gone...

Finally found a song that sounds in the snippet after Equinoxe 7 and in the bootleg of the first Beijing concert after Magnetic Fields 2 😉👍

ps. I just realized that today 41 years have passed since JMJ's second concert in Beijing 🇨🇳
"The most amazing sight... ever viewed... by the human eye!" :shock:
Fan JMJ at first 1997... later in 2005 and really from 2009 to ∞ :)

Interesting that they'd go back to make a vinyl release of that one instead of moving forward with Metamorphoses :P

I remember listening to the Long Play K7 on repeat during my younger years... Always the same feeling and I tell myself that a master worthy of the name should actually be released.
The 2015 remaster first impressed me only to disappoint me because Nuit à Shangai, for example, saturates at the start... it's a crime for the ears, for the artist, for the fans...

Give us that sound again!!!

Jean-Michel Jarre to release remastered reissue of The Concerts In China

Jean-Michel Jarre celebrates 40th anniversary of The Concerts In China with remastered reissue on vinyl, CD and digital

“To this day The Concerts In China experience remains to be probably the most surreal and poetic of all my experiences," Jarre recalls. "It was an honour to be the first Western musician to play live in the country at that time and it was like visiting another planet for me; and also for the Chinese audience too it seemed to be the same curious awe. I have revisited China very often out of passion for their culture and have performed there since, at The Forbidden City and on Tiananmen Square. I am delighted that The Concerts In China album has been remastered, as it’s something I’m incredibly proud of and remains a testimony of my ongoing attachment to China.”
