With his famous pipe and moustache, his guitar, and that mischievous twinkle in his eye, Georges Brassens will always remain one of the most emblematic French chanson performers of the twentieth century. And he is still the most literary singer songwriter in France’s cultural heritage, and the most popular. This anthology prepared by Olivier Julien takes a new historic look at the greatest songs of the poet Brassens, who was born in Sète, with a collection of performances not only by Brassens himself, but also by those who were among the first to record his songs, among them Patachou, Barbara, Juliette Greco and Marc Ogeret. All of these titles combine a timeless poetic ideal with an amazing musicality, and their melodic imprint, today covering several generations, shows no sign of fading.
