it is not an official compilation, just a LFDJ sampler.A lot of these tracks are not appeared in any of the various trade compilations of the label. I compiled tracks only from the first, best, genuine period of el records. - paramo

I love Louis Philippe's 'The Orchard'.
do you have 'Appointment with Venus'(1986) that contains it?
it would be great to have it!
(or any of his albums that contains songs like 'The Orchard' style).
