0043. Jacques Brel – Enregistrement Public à l’Olympia 1964 [1964]


Well, I kind of felt like this guy on the cover when I listened to this album.  Wasn’t exactly thrilled, but it wasn’t terrible.  This is a genre called “chanson,” (pronounced shan-son).  I’d heard of the genre before this album, but it didn’t sound like this.  Anyway, check it out.  If ya dig it, cool.  If not, eh.
