Yay that's just awesome.

That's probably the oldest French VGM release (with "Les Voyageurs du Temps").

Good find Rimo.

Charle Callet's passed away (but i can't find the date atm), he was suffering of the Glass bone disease.

What is the name of the second track supposed to mean?

(C'est quoi, des "verts" ???)

I am unfamiliar with the game.. it was adapted from a French/Belgian Comic (Bande dessinée).

It's a Heroic Fantasy (medieval) themed story.
The knight Bragon is one of the main characters.

While "La marche des milles verts" is the name of one of the worlds you can find on the story.
If i translate it.. it can be: "the step of the thousand worms".
Verts means "worms" ;)

Here's the pic of the 1st volume (6 in total) of the first publication (1983)

Worm is ver, not vert. Vert is green. "The march of the thousand greens"?

Oh lol.. right, now i am sorry about that huge mistake being French ... :o

Yeah it's "Green", so milles verts mean thousand greens, that means there is a very high number of different green colors, this term is mostly used when talking about "nature"/"vegetation". Here's a pic i could use for example:

It still sounds weird. Maybe I cannot grasp the poetic undertone.

(Je suis Français aussi, au passage)

Yeah there's a little "poetic" conotation..

C'est un peu comme dire que quelque chose brille ou illumine de "mille feux".

Wow, this could be the first Western VGM release on Vinyl, not counting all of that early Pac-Man stuff.
