Calypso – Tribute to Jean Michel Jarre was made with the sounds of the Commodore 64
The song, “Calypso 1” was the lead song off the album ‘En attendant Cousteau’ (English title: Waiting for Cousteau) is the tenth studio album by French electronic musician and composer Jean-Michel Jarre. The album was dedicated to Jacques-Yves Cousteau and was released on his 80th birthday 11 June 1990. Allmusic described the album as “groundbreaking stuff”, due to its extreme stylistic differences from his other albums. The album reached Number 14 in the UK charts.
It may not be too well known but Jarre was a hero of mine when I was growing up and doing music on the C64. This album was different to anything else of his that I had previously heard and for that reason, it’s memorable.
