Through a famous catchphrase which automatically speaks to generations of audiophiles and music lovers all over the world for several decades - Ethel Lindsey wanted to bring back to the mind of listeners, the thrilling experience of unveiling mint records and the magical feeling felt when we are discovering new music as well. Some of this music would become timeless and unforgettable as much as these « audiophile experiences » 
Here at LND we had a lot of fun joking around this « sticker affair » which is of course known from us all and was good enough to appear as a « symbolic » concept. 
Each podcast from FSFYP will include tracks selected by Ethel and will give you an exquisite taste of the Afro American and Westcoast music genres from the 70’s to the 90’s. Whether it’s soulful or soft rock, We are talking about a musical « constellation » where we will explore hidden treasures as much as classics. Moreover, a subtitle will indicate the mood and period of each playlist. 
Let’s pretend we unsealed it for you !

LATE NIGHT DREAM Presents Factory Sealed For Your Protection EP5 by Ethel Lindsey

May 28, 2019

After the magnum french adventure we went through with my homies from « the french connection » and eventually my fourth episode of FSFYP,
I’m back now with the best of Soul/Funk, Aor from hey days throwing even some rarities coming from the artist’s vaults and I included it in the tracklist.
This Fifth episode brings you some of the best funk and AOR ballads for our upcoming summer days.
While previous episode were more focused on AOR somehow, this one’s contains a few more boogies and grooves than before.
Some cuts really shows how Disco redefined musicians’s willingness to recapture the true authentic spririt of Funk Music after that 70’s journey, focusing on hard grooves and more complex rhythm than obvious 4 on the floors with the hit hat which was a disco trademark.
We’re still navigating between 1978 and the mid eighties, so you’ll feel the change of direction in some productions as it became more minimalistic along the way.
I didn’t resist adding some epic or sweet tracks coming from Hall & Oates, and Stephen Bishop.
They’re here in this collection to show a true bridge between Soft Rock/Aor and Soul in general.
Disco was in fact a trendy color added to these tracks. 
You’ll also hear an alternate version from The Jacksons, which contains a unrealeased vocal bridge from Michael Jackson for the first time in 39 years.
I really hope you’ll enjoy this selection as much as i had a ball making it really ecclectic. 
This time Rick James will not ask you to smoke or join his Pfunk party, instead he will invite you to celebrate Summer, and Dan hartman will also celebrate Summer’s boogie as well.
Let’s unseal a musical and colored summer on LND !

LATE NIGHT DREAM Presents Factory Sealed For Your Protection EP4 by Ethel Lindsey (A French Odyssey)

January 19, 2019

After three adventures in the land of Soulful AOR coming from America, « Factory Sealed for Your Protection » choose to join the La French Connection’s direction for a special volume also dedicated to the golden era of French Music. American Music completely inspired french Musicians for long decades, but it was more noticeable starting in the late sixties until the early eighties. We’ve already set the stage earlier introducing some heavy weights from France like Iconic engineers, Bernard Estardy, Dominique Blanc Francard, or Jean Pierre janiaud to name a few, and told you some facts about incredibly gifted cats like Slim Pezin, Jean Pierre Sabar, Jean Shultheis or Gabriel Yared. 


One era, one night in a French odyssey and 40 guilty pleasures.
This magnum opus gives you the very best from a simple goal: « America you made us dream, you taught us well, so now here’s what we ( French people) can do with our tools, French language or not »
A fact is interesting in this collection. You will hear two generations of engineers and musicians. A real change of guard well assumed and executed.
You thought that was only gonna be just a boogie affair ? Not at all ! FSFYP (as we did for The LA French connection volumes) demanded more research and a hard diggin to offer you a complete French Aor/soulful/ funky/ discoish and yet Jazzy stuff you ‘ll get elsewhere ! 
Of course there are many other tracks and artists but you will hold the essential jewels next to your ears. Most of it was brilliantly produced and unfortunately forgotten through time. 
This is really a dream come true working on this special edition as it is with my pals from L.F.C. 
This time it’s a true homage to our French icons and musical heritage.
As far as Sealed is concerned we broke the rule a little on this one .. due to some extreme rarities ?? 
Hope you’ll Enjoy it.


Ethel Lindsey.

LATE NIGHT DREAM Presents Factory Sealed For Your Protection by Ethel Lindsey EP3

December 01, 2018

Never II without III – the golden era 77/83 vol III, there you go…
This new volume starts where the previous episode left us.
But this time it’s all about diversity ! Let’s pretend our listener came back from his favourite record store and had a much more ecclectic taste. He is so happy because his lp’s are new and shiny under the cellophane. He smiles and he is proud because he picked up a Gino Vanelli Album but also an obscure one by a french guy named Michel Polnareff.
Now we have a perfect trilogy and this third magnum opus demonstrates that west coast music have always been refined over the years to fit in so many directions. 
Here we have a little glimpse of exotic AOR with the introduction of brazilian fine cuts recorded by culte, major and cherished brazilians artists, like Gilberto Gil and Rita Lee who also worked often together in the past. I’m pretty sure i will do a brazil collection in 2019. Why not ?
Electronics were integral parts of the evolution, and were enough used by George Duke or Ronnie Foster to influence David Foster, Michael Omartian or Jay graydon to do the same.
In this collection i wanted to bring back the old famous disco tracks from Robert Palmer, but also from L.A.X, a belgium studio project led by Ralph Benatar who used players from the wonderful short lived group, Pieces ( also included once again in the package).
What a pleasure to hear the incredible voice of  Geoffrey Leib, a rare vocalist recorded at the end of the seventies who will later re-emerge as his alter ego, Jeff Paris for the hapiness of heavy melodic metal rock purists.
Yes we do have disco but Jazz funk for sure with our heroes from the GRP label, Tom Browne and Bobby Broom.
You’ll find soulfunk gems coming from Ozone, Alfie Silas or even Marcus Miller.
New guests like The famous Nolan sisters, Nicolette Larson, and the great Ned Doheny are also included in this « sealed with love » collection of gorgeous tracks.
We’ll continue our FSFYP Odyssey in this golden era vein in 2019.
Be also prepared for an alternative collection of FSFYP to come who will also be seriously focused on Moog synths from 1975 to 1979.
I’ll probably call it « Back in 1978 »


01.Hall & Oates - Time's Up (Alone Tonight)
02.Marcus Miller - Just What I Needed
03.The Nolans - Every Little Thing
04.Michel Polnareff - Joue Moi De Toi

LATE NIGHT DREAM Presents Factory Sealed For Your Protection by Ethel Lindsey EP1

September 04, 2018

This very first episode of F.S.F.Y.P sends us directly in a period we generally consider as « the golden era » for all kinds of music. 
From 1975 to the early eighties everything seemed to move forwards in the music world and business at a fast pace 
A whole New and exciting generation of Artists/ groups used new born recording techniques, and introduced us to new electronic instruments like Moog and Oberheim synths which brought wonderful atmospheres. 
All these parameters changed the ways of crafting songs and performing it as well. Nowdays we’re coming back to what we thought was kitsh.
To me, it seemed interesting to focus on what happened to the rawness of music itself, from 1975 to 1983. 
Westcoast music has been redefined with elements of jazz, funk and polished to the extremes to become more accessible, more classy and even more pop.
It has to be reworked with the secret desire to seduce more audiences and allow artists to crossover.

I believe excellence inspires excellence and it gives the will to create material as good as possible, and maybe to surpass ourselves.
The success of EWF forever changed George Duke’s vision of jazz fusion and drove him to embrace his knack for melody, or his love for brazilian music.
George Duke, David Foster, Bill Champlin, Al jarreau slowly but surely found their own formula. Australian Singer, Renée Geyer and the short lived group, Pieces - explored the roots of R&B and embelished the hours of AOR Disco.
Steely Dan has included urban grooves in their complex jazz rock chords and structures without sacrify their unique identity. How a group like that has influenced a young brazilian cat years later?
Chris Jasper from the isley brothers once said that the competition in this era was outstanding, crazy and rude with an incredible number of album released every week.
The competition was hard but yet inspiring. Jasper has composed the majority of Isley brother’s albums during the group’s golden age. 
Record Companies and Music Lovers found new tags for these redefined and hybrid music genres. Thats how the « Blue Eyed Soul » and « Yatch Rock » Worlds were born. 
Ewf and many funk groups revamped their grooves and sound thanks to their producers and arrangers. They went also mellow and flirted with new synthetisers.
It was the same for Rock and derivated music.
Through these years, Rhodes piano played a key role in the mellow side more and more. It allowed Artists to explore sensuality and softness in their albums.
David Foster recently mentionned that Maurice White was his true mentor. The connection between Foster and his musical associates led to an automatic musical aknowledgment of EWF. 
As far as Boz Scaggs or Kenny Loggins’s evolution is concerned, it was obvious that following trends was crucial in their developpement.
Not only because of the market itself but because of their abilities to explore. 
It proved to be a good step for some of them, as they somehow published some of their best works between 75 and 83. 
A period where Quality, Professionalism, and excellence at many levels were equally balanced and in a glossy way.
So here’s a first selection coming from what i truly cherish from that period. There’s also a will to offer you the finest and worthy disco cuts along with the cream of West Coast, Soul/Funk and Poppy/Rock oriented tracks. You’ll also find Jazz Funk cuts as well.

Music is a full circle : Today, these Sultry grooves, generous vocalists, awesome and unbelivable arrangements, stands out like an everlasting inspiration on what music should be and should stay :Real, warm, organic with a twist of electronics. The good news is that we have heirs of this music to remember us the beauty of this era.
