"The joy of the audience and the power of Brel's voice combine to create a sense of being in the theatre while Jaques Brel performs the songs on this album/cd. The pain of "Amsterdam", the pathos of "Les Timides", the irony and satire of "Les Toros" and "Les Bourgeois" are all made more powerful by the desire and love given to Brel by the audience; and Brel responds. If you have only listened to Brel's studio productions then you have not listened to the Jaques Brel that grew to international fame as an observer of humanity, its foibles and its greatness. In this performance you truly come to understand why Jaques Brel may be considered one of the finest writer/performers of the 20th century."
