Top Customer Reviews
This album captures the spectacle and atmosphere of the record breaking concerts at Houston, Texas and Lyon, France - with the majority of the incidental commentary and sound bites coming from the Houston concert. Jarre is a concert genius. He brought the whole of major city to a standstill whilst he treated them to a spectacular show of fireworks, lazers and music.
The musical performances are spirited and full of depth. There's even a tribute to the crew of the Challenger Space Shuttle (Ron's Piece). My absolute favourite bit of the album is the massive choir that fill in the vocals of the Rendez-Vous pieces.
My only regret is that I wished I had been there.
However, this earlier recording from the concerts in Houston and Lyon in 1987 is perhaps one of Jarre's better live efforts. The music starts with Oxygene 5 playing beneath quotes recorded from various Americans in the weeks before the concert. Following this interesting lead in comes the atmospheric Ethnicolor in a shortened form, and the next three tracks detail some of his more popular earlier works. Next we have a bombastic 'live' rendition of Laser Harp where you can almost feel Jarre plucking lasers from the air, after an introduction from Pope John Paul. All subsequent tracks are 'live' versions of tracks from his (at the time) new album Rendezvous, including Ron's Piece, played as a tribute to the astronauts who died in the Challenger shuttle disaster earlier that year, one of whom was Ron Mcnair who was to have played live from space for the Houston concert.
This is a fantastic live album capturing the mood of Jarre's work and is a great showpiece for his analogue sound used so heavily at the time. The album itself is probably better than the annoying video of these two concerts, purely because most of the extraneous guff is avoided.
