I first saw this music performed live in a small theatre in lower Manhattan, with THIS CAST!!! in the 1970's. I think I was 13. It blew me away. I bought the album, learned every song I could sing and realized there were other kinds of musicals out there besides ones like"Hello Dolly". I liked this better. To have seen this live, was life changing and inspiring to say the least and now coming across it again. It makes me feel, wow how important music is. I love their emotional delivery. the songs are fantastic!

Memories indeed! I, too, saw this very same cast in Manhattan's Greenwich Village in 1968 or 1969. My husband and I simply couldn't get enough of it; we must have gone to see it three or four times. Brel's music is so powerful and emotional, even more so today in our turbulent times. This album is a real gem.
There's more …
I had an experience with this show that was similar to that reported by the other reviewers. I absolutely loved it. I loved it so much that I searched out albums by Jacques Brel in French/Flemish and discovered that the originals were even better! I can only encourage others to do the same.
