The tracks here include the two songs that Gilbert is most famous for internationally - Et maintenant (translated into English as What now my love) and Je t'appartiens, which became a huge international hit for the Everly Brothers after it was translated into English as Let it be me.
Seul sur son etoile, translated into English as It must be him, became a huge international hit for Vikki Carr. Another song that was a success following translation is Le jour ou la pluie viendra, recorded by Jane Morgan as The day the rains came - it became a British number one hit for her.
In the sixties, Gilbert had many hits in his homeland. Among those included here are Dimanche a Orly (about his constant touring), Nathalie (one of his most famous songs in France), C'est en Septembre, L'important c'est la rose and Quand il est mort le poet.
Success in the seventies and eighties was less consistent although Gilbert remained popular with songs such as Solitude ca n'existe pas, L'indifference and Desiree.
If you have even a little interest in French music of the sixties, you ought to have at least one Gilbert Becaud album. If you just want a single CD, this is as good as you are likely to find but if you are serious about his music, look for a more comprehensive compilation.
