We'd like to thank everyone for preventing us of dead links. For the moment, we are note able to re-up them.

Feel free to keep on preventing us of those dead links. We will update them when we (I and Jeb-E-Diah) have more time to (understand : from september). Some of them will be partially or completely repacked considering albums which would have been issued thereafter and surely with new and improved artworks.

Stay tuned !

Nino Ferrer sadly died in 1998 and let behind him a huge work almost anyone seems to want to remember. Indeed, when you talk about him to any french person, he or she will tell you about his very first songs, a bit comic as "Le Téléfon", "Mirza" or "Ho Hé Hein Bon". That's a bit reducing his work to that kind of "music". In fact Nino was a real music lover, admiring bluesmen and funkmen as he says in his early song "Je Veux Être Noir" (I Want To Be A Black). With his first real LP (Métronimie, 1972) Nino shows how talented he is. Some kind of jazzy-bluesy songs really ambitious and nice to be heard. His masterpiece. Until 1979 with the Blanat album he brang the same policy to his music travelling from one side of the music universe, to another... Finally really underground, he didn't made his place on the french media, wanting another "Téléfon". In the 80s, Ferrer's music became much more mainstream but still nice.

This baistophe is unbelievable: I only knew Ferrer for Le Sud, and La Maison Près de la Fontaine, as well as Gaston of course, but here I discover a complete different artist !!! This man was really into jazz/rock, even sometimes some LedZep fancy tunes. I just can't believe I did not know anything about him (I am french-speaking and into my forties, though)...
Thank you for your work !!!
