Product Description

Isabelle Boulay refait incursion dans l'univers musical country-folk avec un nouvel album, à la fois limpide et mélodique, dont les chansons virevoltent entre ballades et rêveries. Réalisé par Benjamin Biolay, Les grands espaces est le fruit de maintes collaborations parmi lesquelles on salue la participation exceptionnelle de Dolly Parton sur la pièce True Blue, enregistrée en duo à Nashville. Porté par la voix somptueuse de l'interprète, Les grands espaces propose des pièces inédites signées Jean-Louis Murat, Benjamin Biolay, Michel Rivard et Steve Marin qui côtoient des succès de Phil Spector et Daniel Lanois, de Lee Hazlewood et Julien Clerc, d'Etta James, de Françoise Hardy et d'Hubert Mounier.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Jan. 1 2012
Format:Audio CD
Great mix of French and American folk music. Once again La cowgirl produces another hit! I have been following Isabelle's career since 2004 and she only seems to get better. To this day my favorite album is Tout un Jour, but this another great album to be sure. She does a duet with Dolly Parton, whoa!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Très bon album! Dec 21 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
J'ai bien aimé la plupart des chansons surtout les trois premières, mais en tout je trouve que Mme Boulay s'y courbe trop las voix, qui est naturellement forte et distincte. Peut-être c'était pour créer l'effet "country" souhaité par ses conseillers. De toute façon, à mon avis elle aurait fait mieux de se passer entièrement de la contribution vocale de Benjamin Biolay - un excellent producteur et compositeur, mais chanteur... non merci!

4.0 out of 5 stars Mais ! Nov. 14 2011
Format:Audio CD
J'attends depuis longtemps ce nouveau CD de Isabelle Boulay que j'ai commandé au Canada pour l'avoir plus tôt bien qu'habitant à La Réunion! Mais je suis déçu car j'ai appris qu'il y avait plusieurs versions alors que la commande était faite. J'aurais préféré avoir la version avec 18 chansons au lieu de 15, hélas! En outre le colis est arrivé après dédouanement jeudi 10.11 à 14.49h chez DHL Réunion mais distribué seulement lundi 14.11 à 16.15h! Payer 31 $cad pour attendre autant est ce raisonnable?

5.0 out of 5 stars Les Grands Espaces May 16 2012
By John D. Husted - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"Les Grands Espaces" is one of the best, if not the best, album which Isabelle Boulay has presented to us. She describes the album as "Folk Country". That it is. And very well done, indeed. When Mme Boulay was planning this album, she indicated that there would be some surprises. And surprises there were; all of them pleasant.

Of the 15 songs on her album, I'll comment on four of them.

"Jolie Louise" reminded me of the period I spent in Cajun Country in Louisiana in the early 1970s, even though the story of Jolie Louise takes place in the border area between Quebec and Ontario. I really enjoyed Mme Boulay's interpretation.

Mme Boulay's interpretation of "To Know Him is to Love Him" is very beautiful. Both the Lettermen, and Peter and Gordon, recorded excellent versions of the song in the 1960s. Mme Boulay's interpretation is even better.

One of the truisms in life is "talent attracts talent". Mme Boulay sings a beautiful duet, "True Blue", with Dolly Parton. Both of them blend their voices together so well, sometimes it's hard to tell them apart.

And finally, Mme Boulay shows why she has such a devoted and loyal following in her interpretation of the title song of her album, "Les Grands Espaces". It is simply beautiful. It's as if she wrapped her renowned voice of gold (voix d'or) in soft velvet.

Mme Boulay's interpretations of all 15 songs on this album are superb. This album is well worth its purchase price. I, for one, can't get enough of it.

I've been following Mme Boulay since 1996. What I've found that sets her apart from many of her contemporaries is that she sings TO her audience, not AT them.

This album is enjoyable for no other reason, the duets with Dolly Parton and the cover of "Summer Wine." I enjoy the French melody. The English songs are a nice bonus.
