Deserted Palace is the first studio album by French electronic musician and composer Jean-Michel Jarre, released on Sam Fox Records in 1973. It is Jarre's very first full-length album release under his own name, released four years before his breakthrough album, Oxygène. It was an album of library music, intended for use in television programmes, adverts, films, and so forth.[1] It has not been subsequently re-released, although it is widely available as a bootleg. On 30 May 2011, several tracks from this album were officially released on the Essentials & Rarities compilation album.
