THE BEAUTIFUL YOUNG GENERATION” RETURN!

Legendary label from the 60’s relaunches with exclusive sampler & deluxe album series

Sun Ra / Gong / Aynsley Dunbar / Don Cherry / Archie Shepp / Art Ensemble Of Chicago & more!

Between 1969 and 1973, a small, indie label based in Paris seemed alone in supporting black, African American and multi-cultural artists shunned by their home countries. BYG became those artists’ home and a haven for a series of seminal recordings that were uncompromising and full of new sounds.  Whether it was avant-garde, prog rock, free jazz, psychedelic rock, experimental electronica, all had a home.

Now almost 50 years since merging with Charly Records, founder Jean-Luc Young (the “Y” in BYG) is relaunching the label with an exclusive limited edition sampler LP and CD which preview an exciting and varied album release schedule:

“BYG were passionate in supporting diversity, against prejudice and narrow-mindedness so I am proud we fought for all our artists and their music, no matter what they were, who they were or where they were from. We believed in punching above our weight so we could give our artists the freedom to experiment without musical boundaries. Or fear. This sampler is a testament to their creativity...” Jean-Luc Young
