2003 release compiling Barouh's earliest works. "This is the compilation of Barouh's rare singles recorded in 1960 -- 1963. Most of songs were co-written with Francis Lai. And some songs were re-recorded in the later albums. Young and lovely, but full of 'Saudade'. Though the sound production is like a conventional 'chanson' and not very much sophisticated, these songs definitely capture three constant features of Barouh. The most amazing song is title track, 'Saudade (Un manque habite)'. This was co-written and played with Baden Powell in 1960. This should be the first attempt of French Bossa Nova in the history. Considering that the "first" Bossa Nova song, "Chega De Saudade" by Joao Gilberto, was released in 1958, and "Getz/Gilberto", which made Bossa Nova international hit, was released in 1963, this recording may be the very first attempt of non -Brazilian Bossa Nova. More than a historical meaning of this song, it is a beautiful song which hits your heart directly. So, this is the first step of how an amateur in music, full of curiosity, could make the great records." -- SaTou
