More Info

16 track compilation focusing on the early to mid-70s output of the famous French musician, singer, author, composer (500+ songs), humourist, TV personality and label owner Henri Salvador.

A pop star who turned his back to show business to become an independent artist, steered by the revolutionary ideas of his wife Jacqueline in 1960’s France; these are the outlines of Henri Salvador’s unusual musical career. It made him into a star then led him to entirely dissociate from the record industry, preferring to make music in his living room with his guitars.

At 50, Salvador starts experimenting with synths and drum machine, multi- track recorders and altered voice collages. He takes up editing and mixing, and solitarily makes songs for young and old from his home in Paris’ Place Vend me.

“Unfortunately, it’s not beautiful songs that make an amazing career. These are songs that will exist after I die.” (1969)
