Barb Jungr is probably not familiar to you yet but buy this and you'll never forget her.
This is beautiful, grown up music for anyone who loves great songs and exemplary singing.
Barb's choices here will ring some bells-Ne Me Quitte Pas (if you go away) has been tried many times but with this new translation has reached a peak; La Chanson des Vieux Amants is a heart rending ride through a relationship, again in a new translation: and No Regrets should bring back some memories.
And who doesn't know I love Paris and April in Paris? But I'll bet you never go back to the old versions after these!
Don't be put off by the titles, all the songs are in English and sung so beautifully that it wouldn't really matter if you didn't understand a word anyway!
Barb Jungr is a great undiscovered talent, quite the most emotional and skillful vocalist I have ever heard.
Buy this and then hunt out her new cd of Bob Dylan songs 'Every Grain of Sand', done in the same Chanson style, and just enjoy-it's impossible to do anyhting else.
