LP Reissue - Limited Edition of 300 units. Sleeve notes by Nicolas Magenham.
In collaboration with Musiques & Solutions, Music Box Records is pleased to present the LP release of the original motion picture soundtrack of Roger Kahane's The Love Mates (Madly, 1970) composed by Francis Lai, Academy Award Winning composer of Love Story and A Man and a Woman and conducted by Christian Gaubert.
Produced by Alain Delon, written by Mireille Aigroz (Mireille Darc’s real name) and directed by Roger Kahane (Sortie de secours), The Love Mates (Madly) advocates for sexual freedom (at least from a masculine point of view) and a new conception of the couple.
After the commercial success of Love Story, Alain Delon chose Francis Lai, the famous collaborator of director Claude Lelouch to work on the project. The score features many neoromantic pieces that allowed Francis Lai’s melodic talent to shine (combined with Christian Gaubert’s ultra-elegant arrangements). Francis Lai and Christian Gaubert demonstrated the full extent of their talents with The Love Mates (Madly).
Restored and remastered by Christophe Hénault, this special LP reissue, designed by David Marques (aka Dr. Papier) with a beautiful original artwork by MRKS The Sketch Machine, is pressed on black vinyl. The package includes an essay by Nicolas Magenham discussing the film and the score based on new comments by Francis Lai and Christian Gaubert. This LP release is limited to 300 units.
