Paolo Conte has been dubbed the "Tom Waits" of Italy but he is much much more than this. With his deep cigarette-grazed voice his songs speak of far-away places as well as his local Caffe. Followed by a full jazz-set, trumpets, saxophone, bandoleone, Paolo Conte fills the air with a wonderful melancholy, a melancholy which recalls cold afternoons huddled in, thinking back on life.
This specific album is a nice collection, although it does not contain my ever-favourite song, "Gli Impermeabili"... so between the two Best Of's, I recommend "The Best Of Paolo Conte" released in July 5th, 1999 -

The Tom Waits of Italy? Listen, Tom Waits isn't even the Paolo Conte of Los Angeles.

This is a great compilation, and substantially different from the other best of listed on this site. In fact this guy is so good I bought them both, and these records are an utter delight from start to finish. This particular disc dates from the mid-80s, and the recordings are the original studio ones. For the later Nonesuch Best Of it sounds like Conte re-recorded a lot of things, notably songs like 'Via Con Me" and "Hemingway".

Only some 3 or 4 songs from this set are duplicated on the later one, so this is a prime slice of early Paolo Conte. Standout tracks include the aforementioned "Via..." and his ode to the writer, but also a lengthy seven minute groove called "Nord".

Great stuff, and fun even for those like me who wish they understood Italian but don't.

Never thought of reviewing anything - after all who cares what I think - but this CD takes me back 30 years to the good life in Italy and France. If you like something really classy you'll love this old Italian singer - remember Chips Chips with Meg Ryan - it's here and lots more just lovely stuff - buy it and you'll luvit - pip pip!

Not a lot to say about this CD - love Paolo Conte's voice and music but found this very disappointing
