Easy Does It

Oct 04
(Victor Entertainment Japan/ VICP-62869)
LMT double album issue (ltmcd 2420)

[1] Nothing To Lose
"This song (from the movie Party) was originally sung by the French actress Claudine Longet. Henri Mancini has been always been one of my favorite songwriters among lots of others who wrote for cinema like Ennio Morricone and Leonard Bernstein." [NB She might possibly meant Elmer Bernstein instead of Leo.]
[2] Moonlight Dancer
"A lovely classical bossa written by my husband Denis Moulin. The music inspired me to write almost obsolete lyrics about a dance floor from the 1950's, very different from today, when couple still danced together."
[3] A Rainbow (Can't Forever Be)
"Just a little song of mine. I'm too shy to speak about song I write on my own."
[4] O Sapo
"Typical Brazilian beat from Donato. I tried to pitch my version somewhere between Joao Gilberto and Sergio Mendes."
[5] So Tinha De Se Com Voce
"I had to cover a Antonio Carlos Jobim song on a bossa-only album. The first think I ever recorded professionally was a cover of The Girl From Ipanema (renamed The Boy From Ipanema), and the most famous interpreter of this song is Elis Regina, definitely in my top ten female singers."
[6] Omerta Bossa
"This song was written in collaboration with my dear friend Hans Helewaut and arranged in a Gil Evans style by Denis. I must admit to being quite proud of the result!"
[7] Stars
"You can find a very different version of this song on my album Take Me To Paradise but this is how the song was originally written - as a bossa."
[8] Your One And Only
"This starts with a sample from Musique de 4 á 6 from my 1987 album Hoping For Love. I always loved that little bit but thought it was unfinished. So this is how it should have been 20 years ago."
[9] Easy Does It
"I know it's the title of the album but that doesn't mean it's the main track or anything special. It's just my nature - I avoid conflict and I'm not ashamed to make and listen to easy listening music. A little bit of hippy I suppose."
[10] Aguas Calmas
"Although it sounds like a Brazilian standard this song was written by my friend Marito who previously wrote Deux Enfants for me. He's almost unknown. Marito recorded this once on his own album but unfortunately not many people hard it. Let's hope this version gets better chance."
[11] Fresh
[12] Obrigado
"Same as A Rainbow!"
[13] La Pecheresse A La Ligne
"This is a sweet little tune, a bit like Michael Legrand but written by Denis with words by a Belgian girl who sent me some lyrics which I thought were really fresh."
[14] Sweet Kiss
"Again, same as A Rainbow. It's always easier to let other people talk about your work. I just love to do it and it's for others to judge (although in fact I don't listen to the critics very much anyway). I make music because I want to, not really to please anybody else."

- Report on the Dialogue North-South tour, through The Benelux and France, February 1982. 'Inbetween' music taken from the Serge Gainsbourg soundtrack to Francois Leterrier's Goodbye Emanuelle (a.k.a. Emanuelle 3) (1977). TWI 081 was supposed to be the first in a series of live cassettes, called 'The Golden Years' (a Bowie reference?), also including the unreleased TWI 115, a Malaria concert (unreleased) and very likely the Tuxedomoon opening performance on the Dialogue North-South tour at the Beursschouwburg in Brussels, February 3 1982.

De L'Amour Et Des Hommes Vol. 2

Sep 99
CD: BE 1999 (Crepuscule TWI 1010), CD: JP 1999 (Crepuscule Au Japon/Victor JVC VICP-60924)

[1] Le Temps Qui Court
"Originally the melody of this song is from Frédéric Chopin but Barry Manilow had no trouble turning that tune into 'Could it be magic'. Then came out the Donna Summer's version shortly followed by a french version from Alain Chamfort, re-introducing the original melody. Since then, nobody can count anymore the cover versions of this song. This is why my cover had to sound like real Antena!"
[2] Rien Qu'un Ciel
"In this easy listening song, originally written by 'Il était une fois' (famous french pop group of the 70's), the lead vocal was assumed by the drummer and Marco my dear friend, drumming with me for many years now, is the lead vocal on this 1999 version."
[3] Sous Quelle Etoile?
"I was a little girl when my mum used to sing to me one Michael Polnareff's song 'Ame câline' to make me go to sleep. But the radios at that time were more supporting 'Sous quelle étoile?' and I must admit I was also more attracted by the 'Absolutely fabulous' side of it."
[4] Amour - Amitie
"Pierre Vassiliu is probably more known for being a non-conventional and comic person in the music scene but in each of us a poet is sleeping and when he wrote 'Amour - amité' he was surely blessed by the gods."
[5] Rimbaud Chanterait
"I've always loved the poems of Arther Rimbaud and I can still remember every waord of 'Le Dormeur du val' that I learned at the primary school. This is song was obviously composed a few years before Patti Smith wrote 'Easter' revealing her interest in Arther's poetry. Michael delpech's song was telling us that Rimbaud would sing if he lived in the 70's. I bet you today he would rap!"
[6] Dis-Moi Pourquoi
"Michael Fugain has always been one of my favourite french artist. He's a very good songwriter and we had trouble finding a way to re-arrange one of his tunes because everything was sounding so perfect in the original version! So, we have chosen a song which wasn't a hit single. This is a beautiful love song, so I dedicate it too my D.D."
[7] Photos Souvenirs
"I thought about this William Sheller's song during s lazy weekend afternoon. It sounded like an old souvenir and after the weekend I totally forgot what I was thinking about, except that I had the idea to cover it."
[8] Banc 21 - Metro Republique
"Claud François died at the summit of his glory when he was one of the french disco masters. He would probably be into techno now, but at the time he recorded that track, he was more looking in the Motown sound direction. The reggae-ish arrangement came naturally when started to play. I think it's the lyrics that leaded us into that feeling."
[9] Ivanovitch
"In the 70's, Julien Clerc was more a provocative than the crooner he is now. He used to be half nacked in the french version of 'Hair' and some of his songs were disturbing. I didn't find anything like that in 'Ivanovitch'. Maybe it was provocative at that time because it was evocating the life in Russia. However, that waltz is full of harmony and that Ivanovitch fellow seems to me like a nice guy."
[10] Salut Les Amoureux
"I never had the opportunity to play or sing a country song. I jumped on the cover that Joe Dassin made of this A. Guthrie's song. The band and I had a great time."
[11] Faut Pas Rever
"Created by one of the disco kings, Patrick Juvet (remember 'I love America' / 'Où sont les femmes'), don't dream (faut pas rêver in french) is a trip in the very special world of his writer."
[12] Les Paradis Perdus
"Huge star in the 70's, Chritophie had his very own way to express the desabused, decadent movement of the 70's music. This track used to end in a much more apocalyptic way than in my version."

[This album well may be titled as her first album, got out from CHIC influence. 2005 LMT re-issue reversing the track order like starts from vinyl side-B. My favorite song Otra Bebera gets different role as an anchor to upbeat tracks from the closing song. Your preference which one suits you all depends on how much you like the Otra Bebera.]
