Brassens in English

Georges Brassens (image: G. Bochenek)
"Translating his works into English is demanding — and it's discouraged quite a few singers. But now French-American composer Pierre de Gaillande has produced an album of Brassens' songs, titled Bad Reputation." Listen to Scott Simon's  National Public Radio music interview of December 18, 2010 to hear the results. A Propos thanks Joan for sharing this link!
