There were 3 soundtrack compilations on CD (“Extraits des bandes originales des films de Jacques Tati”, “Composers for the films of Jacques Tati” and “Jacques Tati – jour de fête – mon oncle – les vancances de monsieur hulot – playtime”) released before “tati sonorama!”, but none of them were really complete and from the original tapes. Except the full original soundtrack from “Trafic” (see cover art below), “tati sonorama!” is the most complete set of Jacques Tati’s marvelous soundtracks on 2xCD!
“tati sonorama!” was released 2008 by the french label “naïve” and came as a limited edition booklet.
The original & complete soundtrack of “Trafic” from Charles Dumont was originally released in 1971 (Somethin’ Else/6441 001). JASRAC reissued the vinyl in 1994 (SLJS-5046). It even came with a film poster.
Another rare LP release (SONOPRESSE/SP 45566).
