EDITORS’ NOTES

Featuring re-recordings of material that had long been out of print, Mes années 60 stands as a portrait of Claude Léveillée’s undiminished vitality and charisma as he entered the fourth decade of his career. Listening to standards like “La scène” stripped down to piano and voice (with the odd dramatic orchestral flourish), you’ll feel like you’ve been granted a private, after-hours audience with a cabaret legend. And, of course, it wouldn’t be a proper retrospective without his street-strolling chanson “Frédéric,” which here sounds like the showstopper to some imaginary musical about his life.
