“Quand On N’A Que L’Amour - 2me Série” by Jacques Brel avec Les Orchestres André Popp et Michel Legrand - album review

features in: Album Chart of 1957Album Chart of the Decade: 1950s

TJR says

Perhaps disappointed by the sales of 1954’s “Jacques Brel Et Ses Chansons”, it was fully 3 years later until there was a second album for Brel. Spurred on by the success of the “Quand On N’a Que L’amour” single, a French Top 3 hit in March 1957, Philips were quick to react with an album to back it up, pooling from sessions recorded over a 2 year span between March 1955 and March 1957. Despite the promising “bad-boy James Dean” image portrayed on the front cover, “Quand On N’A Que L’Amour” was generally a tad more genteel than the debut, a situation not helped by the confusing multitude of sessions / conductors involved.
