The only Anachronic JB LP that I have is self titled - all liner notes 
are in French so I am guessing a bit.
(Open Stereo OP 02 OMD 516) maybe recorded on 15 - 20 April, 1976
and lists the following songs:

Yardbird Suite (3:04) a
'round About Midnight (7:36) b
Anthropology (2:54) e
Blue Monk (3:41) c
Tin Tin Deo (3:39) d
Jordu (3:49) e
Pent Up House (2:10) e
Bernie's Tune (3:25) f
Move (3:25) f

a: M. Richard (cl) G. Ericksson (pipeau) P. Baudin (p) P. Diaz (bjo) G. 
Gervois (bbs)
b: P. Artero (tp) Cl. Gousset (tb) M. Richard (cl & ss) G. Ericksson

I do not remember where I got this album - it was imported by Rick 
Ballard in Berkeley Ca ages ago. I agree with Brian about the quality 
and fun of this group - when I play it on my show I often get calls and 
e-mail about it.

Now who knows more about another, earlier French, Swiss  or maybe 
Belgian band: Dieuzy's Dixieland Band? I have a Joker LP called 
Dixieland Special, somebody has re-issued it on CD but there is no 
information at all! Probably from the early 1960s... Dixieland Special, 
Apex, Paris Honky Tonk, Basin St., Dixieland Onestep, Ol' Man River, 
St. Louis Blues, Tiger Rag, Shine, Ain't She Sweet, Creole Love Call 
and Royal Garden Blues
