Whether you speak a word of French or not, you should listen to Francis Cabrel; his voice and music are first-class. If you're an English-only speaker, this might be the best introduction because every song is a Bob Dylan classic. To people who don't know anything about French musicians, I tell them that Cabrel is something like Jackson Browne; a singer-songwriter who is both a talented musician with a singular voice, whether it's acoustic or electric. He is a unique and powerful artist, and I hope that this album brings him to the ears of people who have never heard him before. I can't imagine a queue of music without Cabrel.
