4 stars It's quite strange that such an unknown record is still fully listenable on both Myspace and multiple times on Youtube. I don't know the reason for that but i'm very glad that I can easily listen the entire album on Youtube. Apart from one account called Aenaida, that posted the entire album in a playlist, and two videos with the first two songs from different accounts, there are no videos of anything of Plat du Jour. Together they have just above 2000 views, of which 1500 for a video called 'Plat du Jour - Autoroute', containing 11 Autoroute only. This is probably because it's the first link for the term 'Plat du Jour', which is quite common.

As said before, this album is a forgotten classic album of prog, jazz and avant. Music as never heard before. A fresh relaxed mix of everything, with a clear French taste. I have also tried to find more about the performers, but got stuck on something about Francois Ovide and even rarely any information about Speedball Records. That's why there's little hope that it will ever be re- released on cd and that's too bad, because this is something many music-lovers will enjoy a lot. Still, I will have to break the chain of 5-star ratings because it just lacks the power at some points, but anyone who's a bit into this kind of music should absolutely give it a try, because it's easy to listen, fun and original. An excellent album.
