The music of Marie Laforet
(5 out of 5 stars)
"The first time when a fellow Korean nurse lent me some of her music cassettes including that of Marie Laforet, I never expected that I would be mesmerized by the singer's voice and music. From that day on (that was year 1405 in Saudi Arabia) I have been searching the record stores in our country but in vain... until today when I browsed in the amazon net. The music of Marie Laforet is so soothing that it penetrates my mind and soul."
The Best of Laforet

"I discovered Marie Laforet in the cut-out bin years ago now, and fell in love with her light pop-oriented music. It's catchy, fun and she had a voice well suited for radio.I bought her on CD when she first became available here, and I've enjoyed the CD many times since. Of course, Que Calor La Vida is terrific fun, but then so is her version of 'Paint It Black'. There's really not a bad track on here, and it can be fun to listen to even for non-French speakers when they recognize songs translated from English. For me this is light French pop of the 70's at its best. It's a shame there's not a photo of her on the sales page, as she was quite beautiful also!"
French 60's Easy Pop

"Nicely remastered compilation of Marie Laforet's 60's songs.
She has a strong voice and most of this compilation shows it to good effect. On this CD are great versions of songs such as "Viens Sur La Montagne" and "Sifle, Sifle Ma Fille" , which she sings in her sexy and resonant voice. Despite what other reviewers have written, this particular CD does not contain her screamin' and cool version of "Paint It Black" by the Rolling Stones. That song can be found on "Femmes de Paris vol. 1". However if you have already had a taste of Continental 60's pop, especially the wonderful Francoise Hardy, then you will also enjoy this compilation of Marie Laforet."
