Welcome to the new BlahBlahCafe!

Currently, we are experiencing some DNS problems. We hope to fix this as soon as possible.

We have migrated to a new server. As with every migration, some things might have been lost in translation (at least, that's my experience in software development). The main problem is logging in into the boards. These could be caused by several reasons:

- Your browser cache & cookies need to be cleared because we moved to a new server. If you get the error message whilst logging: "The submitted form was invalid. Try submitting again.", you need to clear your cache & cookies. You can find a "Delete cookies" option at the bottom of this page.

- There is also a chance that your password is not correctly converted to the new system. This is a known bug with migrating the system. The only solution is to request a new password, there's a link on the form that will send an email to you to create a new password. If that fails, I can set a password for you, you can contact us at the "Contact us" link at the bottom of the page.

Not bothered about some daft arse that has a grudge. Concerts in China is some of Jarre's best music in my opinion.

Oxygène Tour Manchester 1997
World Tour 2010 Manchester

How much is actual fact and how much is Yan's interpretation, misunderstanding or lie we will never know. All we know that he hates Jarre's music and he sometimes doesnt even know what it means to be a journalist and critic.

It's probably true-ish but regardless it's IMO one of his best albums and certainly the best live one. I think it's wonderful but wouldn't have surprised me if it had been too 'out there' for the audience to really understand.

Still the recordings were edited for the live album release. I used to have some original recordings, however I lost all of my rarities in a hardware crash a few years ago, in an atempt to make a backup... sour arse :punch:

I would guess at least half of the album is studio recorded in perfect circumstances. :P
That doesn't mean the album isn't very nice.
However the "real" live performance recorded from a Peking radio station tells me that it actually was a totally different story. Full of glitches and sloppy as heck. :)

One of these comments by people who just don't understand:

"I wish they would redo his music and take out all the stupid space invader noises. They date the music which is a shame because its really great melodicaly."
Without faith nothing is possible. With it, nothing is impossible.

A quick Google search should have results. I'm quite a fan of the original radio transmition, despite the fake that the album sound absolutely nothing like it...

Would love one of those CiC pin badges or stickers....

I think I may have seen one amongst many other designs during the Belgian International fan convention in the late 1990s.

Anyone ever seen one or own any ?
