Product Description:

The double-disc INFINIMENT is a superb and near-definitive anthology of songs by the legendary French singer Jacques Brel. Brel's best-known tunes are here--"Le Moribond" (known to Americans via Terry Jack's version titled "Seasons in the Sun"), the sweeping "Le Vieux," and the heartwrenching "Ne Me Quitte Pas" (which has been covered by countless English-language artists as "If You Go Away"), just to name a few. An excellent live rendition of "Amsterdam," one of the artist's most memorable tunes, is particularly powerful. Throughout, Brel's resonant baritone, ironic wit, and masterful flair for nuanced, theatrical delivery are on abundant display.
What distinguishes INFINIMENT from other Brel compilations, however, is the presence of 11 previously unreleased tracks, including five outtakes from the sessions for his final album. Story-songs in the classic Brel tradition, these are tales of tragic love ("Sans Exigences"), national pride ("Mai 40"), and fanciful visions ("La Cathedrale," in which the narrator imagines sailing the world in a church-turned-ship). Additionally, this highly recommended collection boasts beautifully retouched sound (hearing Brel through crystal-clear remastering is stunning), and extensive liner notes with English translations of his lyrics.
