While Clearlight were dropped out of Virgin by mid-70's, there was no intention by Verdeaux to slow his project down. He was signed by the French label Isadora for the next album ''Les contes du singe fou'', which finds him supported by an almost brand new cast. Except bassist Jo�l Dugrenot, who played also.
The fourth CLEARLIGHT album, CLEARLIGHT VISIONS was released in 1978 by Polydor Records. Featuring virtuoso Didier Lockwood on violin, Cyrille Verdeaux took the reins of production for the first time, fusing his classical and rock strains with the Sitar and Tabla. CLEARLIGHT followed VISIONS with successful tours of England and Europe, appearing in prestigious concert halls such as the Olympia Music Hall and the Cathedral of Saint Etienne du Mont The tragic death of his 4-year-old son, Jonathan became a catalyst for Cyrille to study and travel the World. During the summer 1994, he recorded with Santa Cruz based singer-keyboardist Gunnar Amundson a modern remake of LES CONTES DU SINGE FOU, entitled IN YOUR HANDS. Musea records in Europe released the resulting Clearlight record.

Les Contes du Singe Fou (roughly translated, Tales of the Mad Monkey) is a progressive rock album by Clearlight, released in 1977 on Isadora Records in France. Returning again to France, Clearlight turned to conceptual space rock with science fiction lyrics. The cover has an elaborate fantasy illustration that makes reference to song titles, previous album covers, and a member of the group. The picture, which continues onto the back cover, shows a character on the front with a monkey's head on a human body, chest and one hand visible but otherwise wearing a fantastic multi-coloured suit with cape.
