LGM’s Ten Rules Of The Successful Cover Version

    1. ‘Intoxicated Man / Pink Elephants’ was released on vinyl not too long ago. I like, to a degree, although they lack Gainsbourg’s default sense of impishness. Serge was such the coquette…

      I’m not certain how comparable SG and Jacques Brel are in terms of re-interpretations, what with having worked in somewhat different oeuvres. I’m a Scott Walker fan, particularly of his first five solo albums – hence his take on the Brel’s Blau/Shuman translations will always be adored. Almond’s ‘Jacques’ LP has its moments if I recall (although haven’t heard it for years… time for a listen, me thinks).
