    • I bought Oxygene and Equinoxe back in the day. To me it was like the future of classical music. Now it probably sounds dated, but considering the equipment Jarre was experimenting with it’s still a hell of a detailed experience.

  1. The JMJ concert at the top; it was JMJ only. Not “various”. It was not a festival. Just JMJ’s concert. Also, JMJ had an audience of 1.3 million in Houston in 1986 and 1 million in Paris in 1979. He’s the only artist to have beaten the world record 4 times, by beating his own record 3 times.
