« on: February 07, 2018, 09:01:25 PM »
Hello folks,

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Catchy LP we are proud to have collaborate with Yan Tregger to reissue one of his classic record from the seventies.
This reissue contains 1 bonus track from the 1974 movie "L'Amour à la bouche" (aka Mannequin) directed by Gérard Kikoïne.

We are offering 3 copies, go to our Facebook page https://fb.me/FarfallaRecords



YAN TREGGER

Yan Tregger was born in Algeria from a french family with italian origin.

Around his 15/16 he learned piano and trumpet in an autodidact way.

Yan Tregger began his carrer around 1967/68, first as a singer.
He soon became known by composing the "Shadoks" theme (french animated television series created by cartoonist Jacques Rouxel).
His first record destined for Library music was "Freezing Point" under Marignan label.
Between the 70's and the 80's he had released about thirty projects under different aliases.

In France, he was one of the first to experiment disco with his band Major Symphony.
His biggest hit was his "Chase" record under the name M.B.T. Soul, which will be sold about 100 000 copies, but unfortunately his producer ran away with the money.

During his carreer Yan Tregger has written more than 2000 tracks registred at the SACEM, including more than 1000 released by glorious label such as Barclay, Vogue, CBS...

Not many people know that he is the nephew of italian actor Erno Crisa.

Little fun fact: He designed the "Magnum" album cover.

Hello Ditrysia, thank you for posting.
Great reissue, Tregger has always been one of my favorites in the library world.
I went crazy trying to find a copy of "Freezing Point" or "Catchy" or "Rhythm And Gimmick" time ago.
A few still to discover too..
Great!

This looks (and sounds) great!
Thanks especially for the little fun facts - the colourful photo collage style is very similar on "Pictures", do you know if he did that sleeve too?

awesome, love that record. was super excited to see that the theme from "L'Amour à la bouche" was gonna be included, but unfortunately it's not the version that was actually used in the film, which is far superior.

dang, i can't seem to find my files of 'Rhythm And Gimmick' anymore.

Thank you  :D

@Greta At that time it was very small pressings, a lot of those finished in the trash and the others have been resold at the flea markets for peanuts

@Mr I don't think that was him

@Zach Do you mean this version?

Oh nice one, Zach!

On the reissue this is a version where a synthesizer playing a theme in addition (actually the track is more longer than on the video version).

The movie contains others Yan Tregger' tracks:
