5.0 out of 5 stars Francis Cabrel at his best! Jan. 12 2010
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD for my sister as a Christmas gift (2008). She has been a fan of Francis Cabrel for many years. She particularly likes this CD as it contains several of her favourite songs among the French singer's repertoire that spans over 30 years.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ols songs are better! April 14 2014

Some old songs are missing. In a retrospective the 1987 cd is a better choice. When a remaster of those beautiful love songs?

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite French singers. April 27 2012
By Knightwind - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
When I first was exposed to French language music, it was via songs from Celine Dion. The first time I heard her sing, I was captivated. (though, I'm not as much of a fan of her English sung songs, which are pretty good, but not always as pleasant to me... with exceptions, of course). So, as a guy, I think it's more natural to like women singers, as most minds of men are attuned to perk up when hearing a woman's voice. It's just natural. Anyway, so I started collecting French music, and at first, went for the female singers, as somehow I felt weird listening to men singing in French. After a while, I got over that stereotype, and found there are some very good French male singers, and Francis Cabrel is one of the best. Listen to some of his music on Youtube, and perhaps you will be inclined to order his music for your listening pleasure too. Other very good male singers, per my taste in music, are: Paul Piche, Yves Simon and Joe Dassin (who was an American born of a French immigrant, who went back to France, and died way too young).

Francil Cabrel is the essence of French pop! His voice will transport you into a sing along, toe tapping, body swaying happiness and you will find yourself humming his tunes day and night! I highly recommend this highly talented, gifted artist!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely Feb. 18 2012
By Paula Weisman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I discovered Francis Cabral's music in 1994, through a friend who had heard him on a trip to France, and wanted me to translate the songs. I remember being thunderstruck by the poetry of his lyrics. His songs have the ability to transport me; it's like a mini-vacation to listen to this music. This two disc set has enough of his songs to satisfy. I gave the set to my sister-in-law from Quebec, and she loved it also.
