This record was initially released by the Institut Coopératif de l'Ecole Moderne - Pédagogie Freinet (The Cooperative Institute of Modern School - Freinet's teaching method) and distributed with the issue number 79 (November-December 1975) of the magazine Art enfantin et créations. The songs presented in this record were created by children from secondary school and high school classes.

To say that these classes were like no others and that the teachers were not just any teachers may sound pretentious but it is certain that these songs could have never been composed without the particularly warm atmosphere that reigned in these children's groups. They didn't just come out of the blue either.

"Singing is like drawing..." and this is one of the child's means of expression, just like writing, dancing, etc and this is in this context that those songs were born. They were created in "French" class and not in music class. Sometimes one pupil composed the text first, and then found a melody, sometimes another classmate helped. But most of the time they were created as songs instead of being only texts with music. Then the other members of the group discovered the songs and learnt how to play it, always in a sharing and welcoming context.

The teachers and educators using Freinet's method (created by Célestin Freinet) intend to develop teaching practices rooted in a "social reality, in order to favour children's emancipation. They want school to be a place where every child can express himself, learns how to be responsible for himself, learns how to cooperate, experiment and open himself to the world. thanks to free text, free drawing, inter-school correspondance, printing and high school paper.... that is still in practice today.

The project of Baisers Volés, a new label specializing in re-edition, is to reissue some of these records, almost entirely created by the pupils of the Freinet classes in the 1970s.

Limited edition of 100 copies.
