"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"."

The story, via LA Weekly, goes that someone comes across Madlib throwing out a box of 45s. The guy says, you don’t want these? Madlib says, fuck it, done with them. So the guy takes the box out of the trash and gives them to his boy DJ EGROEG, who made this mix.
