CD Reviews

Nana's top-selling gem of an album in the Netherlands
pcresus | 04/13/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I'm a French fan of Nana :I own around 250 different albums, CDS and singles/EPs by her in 8 or so different languages. This one stands out as a real gem, so it should come as no surprise that Nana received a diamond record award for it in the Netherlands in the mid 70's. My favourite song on this 1996 re-release in CD format is Nana's excellent English cover of Brel's "Le moribond", i.e. "Seasons in the Sun" (with moving lyrics by Rod McKuen), but her emotional range also transpires in pieces such as "Wedding Song", "Fire and Rain" (the James Taylor song), her English version of Edith Piaf's "Les trois cloches" or "If you go away", (Nana's English version of Brel's unforgettable plea "Ne me quitte pas")."After the Gold Rush" and "Tapestry" add a dreamy and refreshing touch to this album. The bonus tracks that have been added to the CD afford another insight into Nana's hits and evergreens in English and Greek. The outstanding choice of songs and the impeccable interpretation (soft and powerful in turn, with a whole gamut of nuances in-between) make it a must buy!"
