Jacques Canetti Productions presents a collection of classics from the career of painter, poet, actor, and singer Serge Reggiani. This edition includes a DVD (PAL all-region format) with footage of Reggiani's 1968 performance at Bobino, Paris, as well as a 44-minute 1969 interview, all in Dolby Digital 5.1 sound. Beginning as an actor, Reggiani turned to chanson in 1963 with the help of Jacques Canetti. Accompanied by lyricists Boris Vian, Georges Moustaki, Jean-Loup Dabadie, and Claude Lemesle, among others, he led a distinguished career as an unparalleled actor and singer until his death in 2004. The CD includes 14 highlights from Reggiani's repertoire, including "Le petit garçon," "Les loups sont entrés dans Paris," "Ma liberté," "Sarah," and four songs from Reggiani's first album with lyrics by Boris Vian, plus six previously unreleased tracks. The CD also features a spoken tribute to Reggiani by Patrick Bruel, Isabelle Boulay, Carole Laure, Robert Hossein, and Georges Moustaki, as well as Reggiani's thoughts, in the form of his letters, on Édith Piaf, Jacques Brel, Simone Signoret, Romy Schneider, Barbara, Boris Vian, Lino Ventura, Michel Piccoli, and his wife Noëlle Adam Reggiani. CD available without DVD as Toujours (BEC 5772252, 2015). DVD format is European PAL, region free.
