    I use to collect everything of his when I was younger. Albums,Calenders, books, pictures, when he was at the height of his career. He is such a gentle soul. I still like him a lot!

    I had this on an album when I was a teenager – loved it. I may try it out at my singing group next year!

    Yes, I have about 5 albums of his. He`s always been underrated as a songwriter, although I know this is a Jacques Brel song. Yes, he`s almost forgotten nowadays, but he is very much alive! Take care!

    Thanks so much for this- I used to have an album of his but seems to have gone astray…
