Marc Moulin (1942 – 2008) was a Belgian musician and journalist. In the early Seventies he was the leader of the Jazz-Rock group Placebo. Moulin was one of Belgium's jazz legends, making jazz-influenced records for over 30 years. Marc Moulin's three Placebo albums are the 'Holy Grail' for the rare groove crowd, a sector of music fans who love that unique 70s style of cool.

The 1973 album continues in the same vein as Ball of Eyes, though it's definitely more funky and head boppin' than the debut. The real ear grabber is the superb Moog soloing by Moulin.

Original copies of  1973 are in short supply and overwhelming demand, making this first ever official reissue a much needed one! Sampled by J Dilla amongst others.
