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 !

Renaud has undoubtedly been the most rebelious french singer of all times. He has never really been a master of music or singing. However, his songs really fit in French chanson landscape. Like other singers in France, Renaud's talent is in his lyrics. If you don't understand French, I just can advise you to get translation from his texts. His major work came in the 80's even if two of his greatest albums have been released in the 90's and his early works are really worth a listen.
As I said, if Renaud is not a musician per se, he has managed to get together some of the greatest musicians of French scene such as Bernard Paganotti, Jean-Pierre Alarcen and others...
At the end of the 90s, Renaud fell down into alcoholism and drug abuse causing him to disappear from the musical news for about 7 years. After that painful episode of his life, he made one of the best sold album of his career with the 2002's 'Boucan D'Enfer'. If there are great songs, we hardly recognize our beloved Renaud, ironic and clever. The new one is more a "Vieux con" disliking nearly everyone and everything as he tells in his song 'Docteur Renaud Mister Renard'. Nethertheless, this album is still a great listen even if Renaud's singing is deeply injured (and much more when he sings live since that come back).
What I was expecting sadly happened with his last album to date, 'Rouge Sang', where, for the very first time in my life as a Renaud connoisseur, no track really met my interest. That's why my Baistophe stops in 2002.

For Your Pleasure !

Il est bien le p'tit bal du Samedi soir !!!!

Ayah Gagöhn said...

C'est un point de vue ...

Pour ma défense, je dirait que le côté franchouillard vachement prononcé de ce disque me pèse un peu à la longue...

Ben oui mais c'est du musette donc c'est franchouillard !
En tout cas merci beaucoup.

De rien, on est là pour ça ;)

Excellent compilation ... mais mon favorite "Miss Maggie" pas la!

I had to remove it from my own fav' list, first because it is not very nice to Maggie (even if she's worth to be beaten)... and second, because it's not musically a good song : if you do not understand the words, it's only a song like others...

But if you do want it, just ask, I will send it on both french and english, as a bonus track.

Hey! The links are dead, can anyone re-up this one?

I will ASAP. I'll try to rework the Artwork and, maybe include a song or two of his last album...
