Description: Originally recorded from 1987-94, these recordings were originally released as single discs but were also boxed in 1994. This new reissue comes complete with updated and augmented notes (37 pages in English in the 164-page booklet) which go in chronological order (although the discs do not), making this a ridiculously cheap and quite invaluable primary source for the often dark and tormented music of this young, mortally ill genius. 8 CDs. French-English texts.
