    Yes nice aalbum.

    Once you got it on your pc and like it (you cannot dislike it !!), then BUY IT !

    You can buy almost all Sardaby’s for less than 20 euros each

    Please BUY his LPz. It’s beautiful music; sometimes less fusion, sometimes not my taste. But this artist is alive and need our recognition

    GIVE HIM YOUR MONEY – Don’t STEAL The MAn! This is not fair.

    Plus there is this compilation by his daughter called “The Art of Michel Sardaby” recently distributed, in France only I think (see link of article in french – Use translated page if interested : http://blogdechoc.over-blog.com/article-l-art-de-michel-sardaby-97875958.html )

    Mr Sardaby has health problem so this album is for him / to him, auto-produced by his daughter Patricia



    Merci pour l’Art
