  1. I guess that “Oxygene” have been released in 1976, not 1977. Or am I wrong?!

    Answer: You are right… It was released in 1976 in France and in 1977 worldwide…

  2. I used to have an album of jean michelle jarre’s but I lost it and I am trying to find a particular track where a brilliant female vocalist comes in towards the end of the music.
    I think the whole album was live.
    Can anybody help.

    1. What you are describing looks like “Diva” from the Zoolook album but unfortunately there is no live version of that song…

  3. I think that new album Electronica 1 is one of the best studio albums of JeanMichelJarre. Another the best studio albums are Oxygene and Equinoxe and Rendez – Vous and Geometry of Love.
