The Charly label released an interesting 3CD set:

"various artists: jazzactuel - avant garde / free jazz / psychedelica from the BYG Actuel catalogue 1969-71"

**includes 48-page booklet of liner notes and photos.
Back in circulation: Thurston Moore and Byron Coley's survey of the free jazz and improv nuggets originally released thru BYG. Over three discs the veteran avant specialists sift out important aces from Sunny Murray, Sun Ra and his Solar-Myth Orchestra, Don Cherry, Anthony Braxton, Gong, Musica Elettronica Viva, Art Ensemble Of Chicago, and many more, 24 tracks total, all remastered for the fiends. Much of the material here stems from recordings made while those artists were visiting Europe over the period 1969-71.**
