Gabriel and Marie Yacoub (Malicorne)
"Pierre de Grenoble" 1973

This is the superb album recorded after Yacoub's stint with Alan Stivell's band and prior to the formation of Malicorne.
Having lost so many LPs to friends who borrowed and never returned them, I now have to own up and say I pilfered 'Pierre de Grenoble' from my friend Viv. It's THAT good. So good, in fact, that she was still asking for it back 10 years later. Well, here it is, Viv. Thirty-five years late but still in quite good condition.

Ona a completely diferent note... Perhaps your visitors would be interested in a great album from Russia:

Мельница - Дорога сна (2003)
Mel'nica - Doroga sna (2003)
(if one is to believe translator on http://www.mblogic.net/tools/translit/cyrillic/)

Album can be found on NoNaMe.ru (Folkbunker) or more precisely on
http://apex.nnm.ru/melnica_doroga_sna_2003_1 (rapidshare)
or
http://rock-russian.nnm.ru/melnica_doroga_sna_2004 (axifile)

Hopefuly links still work

Unfortunately after this great album, their other work IMHO get progressively worse, but do make your minds up by yourselves by listening to those as well.

Thank you for all the great music you and your friends put up for us.

I'm too stupid to find the actual links to the album in the posts that anonymous links to. Any help?

And thanks, Manila. "Malicorne" is a great name for a band. Sound like an evil unicorn.
