Ilous & Decuyper biography
Both musical prodigies at early ages, ILOUS & DECUYPER began their respective careers as solo acts. Brought together under the fledgling Flamophone label, the two produced only this one full-length studio album as a group.

The music is quite pastoral, primarily acoustic but with some wailing electric guitar as well, which is played on several tracks by both artists. Jean-Jacques Justafre, who would later perform with Alan Stivell, adds a light orchestral touch with French horn to augment Ilous' various pipe and piano arrangements. The band's vocals harmonies have been compared to CROSBY, STILLS and NASH, in particular on the BEATLES cover 'Eleanor Rigby'.

Review by Evolver
Special Collaborator Crossover & JR/F/Canterbury Teams

3 stars Here is an interesting album from 1971. I'll admit to not having much prog folk in my collection besides most of the Jethro Tull albums, but I have been known to enjoy bands like Fairport Convention, Pentangle and the like.

Bernard Ilous and Patrice Decuyper borrow from quite a few sources. The opening track (and elswhere on the album) sound like Beach Boys style harmonized vocals. Elsewhere there are tracks that sound more like Crosby Stills and Nash, Jefferson Airplane, one even sounds a bit like Jethro Tull's Mother Goose, and another like the Rolling Stones.

Lyrically, I can't tell you much, as it's been forty years since my French classes. The only song in English is a spirited (and excellent) cover of The Beatles' Eleanor Rigby.

The album isn't as complex, or even as folky as mos of the prog-folk I am familiar with, but it is fun.

Thanks to ClemofNazareth for the artist addition.
