Michel Polnareff - Michel Polnareff (1966)





From Beatman:
Michel Polnareff - Michel Polnareff (1966)
Continuing the theme 'Private Collection - Overview Albums'...
Michel Polnareff is a French singer-songwriter, who was popular in France from the mid-60's until the early 90's. Michel was born into an artistic family: his mother, Simone Lane, was a Breton dancer and his Russian father, Leib Polnareff worked with Edith Piaf. Michel learned piano by age five, then guitar, and after his studies, military service, and a brief time in insurance, in 1965, Polnareff won the Disco Revue prize in Paris. His first disc in 1966 was an unexpected success - new musical style and Polnareff's atypical image, crossed borders...
An interesting fact: first hit - 'La Poupee qui fait non' (1966), recorded in London, featured Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones as session players...
All selected tracks are restored and remastered for a good modern sound...

Everyone who knows the blog "Old Melodies" or earlier "Wings of Dream" for many years,knows that there are large archives of music here since 2007 ... 98% of the links up to 2015 are dead. I will gradually be engaged in their recovery. This takes a very long time, so the answers to requests will be minimal and in no way will be accepted from anonymous users. I spend a very long time on my uploads. Please,find a couple of seconds to sign your comment or message. I hope for understanding...
