DOUCE FRANCE

Latest update on 22/08/2014

Artist: Roland Gerbeau
Author: Charles Trenet
Label: Disque Sofradis
Year: 1944

Trenet's supporting act, first at the ABC club in Paris, later during a never ending Tour de France (between 1942 and '44), landing him the privilege to introduce some new compositions. See also: La Mer. Giving songs away was Charles' way to show gratitude. Trenet offered it first to André Claveau, who didn't consider it a priority to record. Reissued on Fréméaux double cd L'integral Trenet Vol 5.
