Léonie ‎– En Alabama / Wahala Manitou 7" (1971)

Here's a little treat for all of you who collect French rarities!  A nice little 7" by Léonie Lousseau featuring two insanely good tracks! "En Alabama" (Written by the one and only Jean-Claude Vannier and Sébastien Poitrenaud) is basically a vocal version of Vannier's library groove "Je M'Appelle Geraldine", a bonus track from his 1972 masterpiece "L'Enfant Assassin Des Mouches".  On the B side we find a nice tune written by French pop star and soundtracker - Christope called "Wahala Manitou", a bit of a slow burner, but equally as engaging.  This single is pretty hard to find in the states, so I hope you enjoy this fresh vinyl rip!  320 kbps naturally with cover scans included.
