7" single in 1969 was produced by African actor/poet Alfred Panou, who got along well with Pierre Barouh, the boss of the prestigious French Saravah label. The Art Ensemble Of Chicago, an avant-jazz group from Chicago that was active in France at the time, improvised on this two-tunes set with a poetry reading by Alfred Panou. On the A side, "Je Suis Un Sauvage" afro-groove with dope bass line that builds to a frenzy in the latter half, and on B side, "Le Moral Nécessaire" a narrative reading with a street-like free-form performance. It's a miraculous wired sound, a historical work that can be seen as an important moment in black music. The engineer is Daniel Vallancien. Original.

アフリカ出身の俳優/詩人Alfred Panouが仏名門SaravahレーベルのボスPierre Barouhと意気投合して制作された69年の7”シングル。当時フランスで活動していたシカゴ出身のアヴァント・ジャズ・グループThe Art Ensemble Of Chicagoの即興演奏にAlfred Panouのポエトリー・リーディングを合わせたもので、A面には呪術的なベース・ラインのアフロ・グルーヴから後半にかけて熱狂となっていく”Je Suis Un Sauvage”、B面には語りかけるリーディングにまるで路上フリー演奏が加わった”Le Moral Nécessaire”を収録。怪盤にしてブラックミュージックの重要な瞬間とも捉える事ができる歴史的な作品。録音はDaniel Vallancien。貴重なオリジナルです。
