Burning Shed rende disponibile una nuova ristampa di Jazzactuel, storica antologia in tre dischi con il meglio del catalogo BYG Actuel degli anni 1969-1971: "An acclaimed 3cd compilation of music released on the legendary French label, BYG Actuel. Collecting recordings from 1969-1971 and comprising the best of its improv jazz, avant garde and psychedelic output, the set features Don Cherry, Sun Ra, Archie Shepp, Gong, Sunny Murray, Art Ensemble of Chicago and more. Absent from the reissue racks for the best part of a decade, the set was originally compiled and annotated by Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore, together with US music journalist Byron Coley. First released in 2000, this new edition includes a 48-page booklet featuring newly sourced photographs and memorabilia all housed in an attractive box".
