Just got this classic in today and loving its quirkiness...

La Plan?te Sauvage was the original French title for the 1973 movie Fantastic Planet (although the actual translation of "La Plan?te Sauvage" is "The Wild Planet"). The great news was there was a soundtrack album to the movie that also came out, originally on the EMI/Path? Marconi label. The original LP has became quite a rare and sought after item, only now it's been reissued. Anyway, the music is by Alain Goraguer, same guy who did music for other French films, including two other animateds that I'm aware of, The Dead Times (Les Temps Morts) (1964) and The Snails (Les Escargots) (1965), both by the same makers of Fantastic Planet (Ren? Laloux, Roland Topor). While both of these films tended to have a more avant-garde jazzy score, the music to Fantastic Planet has a more progressive funky score. If you can imagine Pink Floyd meets Shaft, you get sort of an idea. The music consists of synthesizers, flute, Hohner clavinet, guitar (with lots of wah-wah effects), bass, and drums. Variations of themes do recur, which makes more sense when you've seen the film. It's hard to believe that a soundtrack album to a movie that's known by so few was ever made available, but its true.

Been itching for this for a bit and dug it out earlier...

Absolutely brilliant combination of Jon Anderson and Vangelis
