In 2012, Wah Wah 45s re-mastered and re-issued Henri-Pierre Noel's debut LP from 1979,"Piano", to huge critical acclaim.

Whilst doing so, Canadian producer Moonstarr discovered a couple of previously unreleased cuts recorded in the same session way back when.

Henri-Pierre Noel's versions of the the Walter Murphy disco classic "A Fifth Of Beethoven" and the soul/jazz standard "Mercy, Mercy, Mercy" are fire for the dance floor filled to the brim with the man's tradmark keys, funky bass and afro flavoured percussion.

These exclusive recordings are sure to start many a party this summer, and set the scene perfectly for Henri's UK visit this July - the highlight surely being a full London show at The Jazz Cafe on Saturday July 13th!
