This was David Christie’s first full LP, after the releases of his EPs, and was released around the late 1960’s on Disc AZ records, France.
This album is a collection of 12 instrumental tracks composed by David under the alias of James Bolden. And by looking at the front cover of the album itself, David played most of the instruments too!
Worth a mention here is that amongst the songs on the album, there is also an instrumental version of “Pour Une Rose” (J. Bolden/ J. Rech), which sounds almost like a movie soundtrack. This is a great track with an orchestral intro, choir and guitar solo.
“Special David Christie Sound, Vol. 1” is very hard to find, but worth checking out if you can get hold of a rare copy. You are probably wondering if there was ever a Vol. 2 LP, well, so far there is no information on this, but if you have any info, please do let us know through the “Contacts” page, which is located under the “Links” tab at the top of the website!
Luckily, we can hear one of the tracks that someone has posted from the “Special David Christie Sound, Vol. 1” LP titled “Le Vent du sud” (The South Wind), which you can hear below for your listening pleasure – enjoy!
