If you don’t want to get the esthetic heart attack (in the negative sense) - don’t listen to electronica albums.
They’re not much better than Teo&Tea….
The Music for Supermarkets has been bootleg’ed and is available for download on various portals, but it’s coming from the radio broadcast.
I’ve also been collecting whatever I can (still missing some songbooks). Some 2 years ago, I’ve started to collect his vinyl releases.
So far, I miss the Oxy 7-13, which isn’t available other than on discogs.com, usually for around 200Eur or more.
p.s. I didn’t knew that Geometry of love is not on sale anymore. If not mistaken (can’t see it from here) my copy was signed by JMJ some time ago, when I’ve been giving him a copy of my albums :)

>> A couple of years ago, I've been really a hardcore fan of Jean Michel.
>> After he went out of the path and started to release strange/commercial albums (Teo&Tea, Geometry of Love, Sessions 2000, Electronica, etc) I've narrowed my fan'ism (haha) to only old albums.
> I used to buy pretty much any CD, CD-single, and CD-maxi that came out. I've got the 10th Anniversary Box. I've got both the UK version and the French version of Images. I went to the Concert d'Images exhibition in Paris in 1989, to the Paris La Défense concert in 1990, to the concert at Mont Saint-Michel, and the Concert pour la Tolérance in Paris in 1995. I've got books, songbooks and even a couple of bootlegs. One of the few things I don't have is Music for Supermarkets, for obvious reasons. Also, I've steered clear of the compilation albums.
> But while Métamorphoses had its moments, it was pretty much downhill from there. Jarre seemed to have lost interest, or the plot altogether, and I too moved on. I think I've listened to Téo & Téa (which Jarre himself thinks is crap), Geometry of Love (no longer for sale, with the pubis of Isabelle Adjani on the cover) and Sessions 2000 just once.
> The reason why I got Oxygène 3 is mostly because I have all the rest, and hey, Oxygène 8-13 was an excellent album. His last good album, if you ask me.
