Le bon chanteur avec la mauvaise reputation
(5 out of 5 stars)

"C'est indispensable, cette collection. Goerge Brassens (1921-81) was a great French folk singer whose songs ranged from tart social criticism ("Les Amoureux des Banques Publiques", "La Mauvaise Reputation") to surprisingly tender and wistful tunes ("Une Jolie Fleur", "La Parapluie".) The songs demand repeated listenings and reveal - albeit with some patience - Brassens' lyricism and earthy beauty. A good compromise set for those who want more than just a greatest hits but don't want to spend beaucoup des frics on the 10-disque collection."
(5 out of 5 stars)

"You guys who want to know BRASSENS without spending for the complete 12 cd collection, here's your chance.Buy buying this you get 5 masterpieces(LE GORILLE, CHANSON POUR L'AUVERGNAT,SUPPLIQUE...,LES TROMPETTES DE LA RENOMMEE and LES COPAINS D'ABORD ).You also can hear some lesser known tunes that deserves to be there.In all ,this is a excellent overview of his career ,and a good way to get acquinted with him.Beware of BRASSENS if you are afraid of graves because sometimes it is a theme quite obsessive with him.Dig in my friend and stop being afraid of the dark."
Great French Folk music from a classic source
ALAIN ROBERT | 12/31/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Brassens was a non-conformist folk artist who wrote short songs to celebrate life. His music is perhaps an acquired taste - to appreciate it, some knowledge of the French language is helpful. This album is one of his best - certainly one of the most listenable. His other albums can start to seem somewhat repetitive due to the short, simple phrases used in their composition. His music is always creative and this album, his second, exemplifies his debonair style."
