Jacque Canetti Productions presents a reissue of Jacques Higelin & Brigitte Fontaine's 1966 album Chansons D'Avant le Déluge. Brigitte Fontaine's partnership with Jacques Canneti had just begun with her debut album, 13 Chansons Décadentes et Fantasmagoriques (BEC 5772226/5772795). This, her second release on Disques Jacques Canetti, heralded the arrival of her highly productive partnership with Jacques Higelin, and remains a cult duet album. Chansons D'Avant le Déluge includes "La grippe" and "Maman j'ai peur," two songs that would go on to become centerpieces of the duo's stage musical Maman j'ai peur. The album features production by Canetti and orchestral arrangements by Jimmy Walter, who also arranged the orchestral parts for Fontaine's debut.
