℗ 1978 Disques Dreyfus
Equinoxe was the second major-label album release by Jean Michel Jarre, released in 1978 on Disques Dreyfus, licensed to Polydor. The album has since sold more than 10 million copies in total, though still not as many as its predecessor Oxygene.
The album reflects a day in the life of a human being, from morning to night. Parts 1 to 4 (i.e. side A) and tracks 5 to 8 (side B) segue smoothly from one to the next.
Jarre had developed his sound, employing more dynamic and rhythmic elements, particularly a greater use of sequencing on basslines. Much of this was achieved using custom equipment developed by his collaborator Michel Geiss.
The release was followed by a concert on the Place de la Concorde, Paris on July 14, 1979. The concert attracted 1 million people, becoming Jarre's first entry in the Guinness Book of Records for the largest crowd for an outdoor concert.
Two singles were released from the album, "Equinoxe Part 5" first, and then "Equinoxe Part 4".
The album reached #11 in the UK charts and #126 in the US charts
