Of the many Pascal Obispo albums released over the course of the variété française giant's illustrious career, Welcome to the Magic World of Captain Samouraï Flower is perhaps the oddest. It's a loosely tied together concept album in which he adopts the moniker Captain Samouraï Flower, dresses like a militarized Zorro, and sings fantastical songs with an idealistic ecological bent. The Beatles' Summer of Love opus Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (1967) is clearly an influence, in terms of costume as well as musical style. "Le Drapeau" is particularly interesting in that it's a rewrite of Coldplay's international smash hit "Viva la Vida" from a year earlier.
