REVIEW: Shoes - Un Dans Versailles reissue (Numero Group)

This is one of those early 70s albums that seems to encompass everything that was great about rock n' roll up until that point and everything after- like Big Star's Radio City or Alice Cooper's Easy Action.  Straddling the intersection between classic rock, power pop, proto-punk and psychedelia, Un Dans Versailles is diverse and understated.  Folks familiar with their later, glossier hits will be surprised that this recording is fairly 'lo-fi' which makes it all the more charming.  Get the reissue on Numero Group here.
