I compiled a list of all "Hexagone" tracks by JMJ registered at Sacem. The list contains 188 entries, however a bunch of them has other variations listed in "Sous-titre(s)". Counting all of those that gives us 290 entries (or possibly several more, as the list of variations of "Hexagone 5" seems truncated as it ends with "..." - unfortunately the track detail page contains a... shorter list!)
So I think we might be getting the entire catalog on those 4 CDs. 290 jingles will most likely fit length-wise and quantity-wise (per the CD standard there is a limit of 99 tracks per disc - that's why Radiophonie vol. 9 has only (sic) 99 tracks). The question is whether CD1 will be just a copy of vol. 9. I think it might be.
I wonder what 666 will sound like
I guess we might find out in a month or so. "Hexagone 666" does indeed exist per Sacem records.
Good find. Since this number is pretty much consistent with the number of Hexagone tracks registered at Sacem, that means that the content of Radiophonie vol. 9 will be included and CD1 will likely be exactly the same as vol. 9 (because of the 99-track limit)
Interesting. CD1 duration is 59:19, while vol. 9 is 61:24. So either the original 1-99 jingles are not included or they are arranged in a different manner. What's also interesting is that CD2 is over the standard 74 minutes, it would be possible to move some of the tracks to CD1 (which still has 14 minutes left), but this odd division is for sure intentional.
If the 99 tracks from vol. 9 are not included then we have 190 tracks remaining (per Sacem records) to fill up those 270 minutes, giving us approx. 90 seconds per track on average, which seems a lot, esp. given that the original 99 tracks (61 minutes) average at around 40 seconds per track. That's why I'm inclined to believe that the entire catalog is included (290 tracks spread on 270 minutes gives as 55 seconds per track on average)
