Sorry Bill, I just couldn't resist airing my schoolboy French from some 50-odd years ago.
chronological adj. chronologique
as defined by the the French Academy in 1877
This substantiates your belief in a slip-up during the artwork on the CD cover, especially as the French rarely use English words - they even refer to New Orleans as Nouvelle-Orléans (cited from French HMV LP FELP 200). Incidently, there is a good French phrase, viz.: 'Made in France'.
