- Souffrances Et Extases Du Jeune Amour
- Artist: Don Muro
- Format: LP
- Release Date: 11/25/2014
Vinyl LP pressing of this album containing previously unreleased tracks from the underground legend. When it comes to lost or unreleased albums, most have stories that are far more compelling than their actual musical content. But the intriguing narrative here is just how wonderful these songs are! This collection, whose title translates as 'The Sufferings and Ecstasies of Young Love', is full of euphoric uppers and depressing downers that float across genres as Muro let's his young emotions flow through catchy garage rockers to smooth AM gold ballads to arena-ready prog pop anthems to the the analog synthesizer compositions for which he is best known. While comparisons could be made to anyone from the Zombies to Todd Rundgren to Carole King to Pilot to Elton John to Boston, the voice and direction throughout is distinctively Don Muro, who wrote, performed and recorded every note on the record.
