The colors of life...




Very little info about Pop Concerto Orchestra apart from the fact that it is a French group formed in 1968 by Olivier Toussaint and Paul de Senneville.


Group which will remain mainly in the musical history of the 80s for the title "Eden is a magic world", title dating from 1976 but which will know its hour of glory in 1982 thanks to the Telefunken commercial.


As such alone, he deserved this article.


To discover or rediscover.

1972 ... in a style that fits perfectly with the time, the group delivers its first copy here. Nothing fancy but a job well done ...



1973 ... well, it is sure that in terms of words, we are at the Zero level of creation. It will therefore be necessary to be satisfied with ba-ba-ba-ba-ba ...



1973 ... the group's business is mainly instrumental music accompanied by some chabadabada. A very fashionable trend at the start of the 1970s ...



1974 ... always in this inimitable style typical of the 70s. The group continues its adventure quietly, but surely ...



1974 ... the long-awaited lyrics finally make their entry. All in a good-natured atmosphere that doesn't ask for more ...



1974 ... return to quasi-instrumental mode. It was therefore not necessary to rejoice too soon. And above all, we will have to be patient to see the group deliver a title worthy of the name ...



1976 ... two years have passed and the group finally seems to be aware of the new trends of the moment. Hope it lasts ...



1976 ... indeed, a new underlying trend began for the group in the middle of the decade. We therefore expect something big for the years to come ...



1982 ... it took almost 6 more years, and THIS title, for the group to finally experience its heyday. A late consecration but which offers them a direct ticket to posterity. MAS-TER-FUL !



1982 ... a sequel that will be unable to compete with the enormous previous title. We must not hide our face, it was almost mission impossible !



1984 ... a style completely outside the standards of the moment. How to compete in these conditions with a competition of young youngsters starving to death ? End clap as they say ...
