Premiers Désirs - Soundtrack

'Cause it was Oscar night and all... I present to you a soundtrack that I bought as a teenager in '83.

I was sixteen (you can do the math...) Hopelessly romantic and absolutely crazy about the photography of David Hamilton. I guess he was more common in Europe... Girls my age had his photographs on their bedroom-walls. The only problem was that I couldn't go see his movies because the were +18.
So I bought the soundtracks, and dreamt my own movie... (which were probably better than the real stuff cause his movies where not that great...)
The soundtracks of Bilitis and Laura are easy to find on the net. This one is rare.
It has some beautiful theme's. They reoccur in the different tracks. The soundtrack reminds me a bit of Michel Legrand's Summer of '42.
I know it's somewhat different than the usual stuff in this blog, but hey... you can be brave...

Side 1
01 Premiers Désirs
02 Découverte de Caroline
03 Julia Drake, Pianiste
04 A Travers le Voile
05 En Bateau
06 L'Eté, Les Jeunes Filles
07 Le Port du Départ

Side 2
01 Le Premier Eté d'une Jeune Fille                                                                  
02 Découverte du Plaisir
03 La Nuit, La Forêt
04 Les Parasols
05 Le Trouble, Sur la Plage
06 La Jetée, Le Miroir, Le Baiser
07 Premiers Désirs (Final)

attention : as you can see the French titles have some é and ê's in them.  This gives some of the 'unzip' applications out there, some trouble. Just use a different program if it doesn't unzip completely.
