Biography

Pierre-Alexandre Vertadier - Former Head of Marketing and International Development for EMI France. He tells us this story as he lived it in 2000.

‘When I first arrived at EMI, Marc Lumbroso (former EMI Music France chair) was all excited about his latest signing; we have to admit we were far from imagining what was about to happen to us. We knew about St Germain’s talent. ... Read more in Amazon's St. Germain Store

4.0 out of 5 stars good! 9 July 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If you were expecting jazzy music like that of Tourist--IT IS very different. More like house music. That said, This album is VERY good. As with all compilations, there are one or two I could do without but on the whole, amazing! The First three tracks are really good dance tunes (Especially Walk So lonely --for those of you from New York--remember the Shelter --and "Black Betty"--this is like it)...The Cd had me dancing around my living room! There is a good latin jazz/house #-called Soul salsa Soul as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars A House Lecture : Pre-St. Germain - 4 STARS 5 Nov 2001
By diro - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
There are no doubts the influence which St. Germain (aka Ludovic Navarre) has had with his releases Tourist and Boulevard. From Detroit to St. Germain shows us a little about the beginnings of Navarre's musical background.
This album is primarily straight-up house music and not filled with the jazzy-french sounds which have come to personify St. Germain. There are certainly highlights to the ablum including "Walk So Lonely", "Prelusion", "Move", and "Deep In It". Soul Salsa Soul is probably the lynch pin of the album with it's fusion of Latin jazz-rhythms and house music; it is the song (along with "Deep In It") which most closely resembles Navarre's current work. [NOTE: no other tracks from this album made it to his latest releases besides "Deep In It"]. The songs on this album which I enjoyed the most were those where Navarre collaborated with the musicians who appeared on his later releases.
St. Germain fans will enjoy this album - primarily because of the straight-up house/dance music - as well as for the glimpse into the past which it provides. If you have not experienced St. Germain I recommend starting off with either Tourist or Boulevard. Bottom line: All St. Germain fans should seriously consider getting this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Like St. Germain? Then you must get this record! 6 Nov 2001
By Frances Morel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I really liked Tourist and Boulevard, and wanted to keep exploring Ludovic Navarre's interpretations of jazz, house and blues and gave this one a try. It was well worth the money! This album is more blues/house oriented, and was recorded on the heels of the techno explosion in Europe. With creative collaborations with other French DJ's on this album, we see a different side of St. Germain. The sound is less produced (as Boulevard)and funkier than Tourist. Less jazz, more dance oriented. Especially "Alabama Blues". I found myself listening to it over and over again, falling in love with the samples of harmonicas and deep south blues vocals, with a dash of female pop samples to make it a delicious combination of funky house and techno. You must get this record! Tres Bein St. Germain!

5.0 out of 5 stars Detroit Progressive Gem 29 Aug 2003
By Theodore B. Riley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
All I can say is check out cut number 5 "Prelusion"! It seems as if St. Germaine is originally from Motown and changed his name from MayDay "Derrick May". It makes no sense that we have not heard more from him in this arena not that "Tourist" is bad because it is everything one can expect from a midtempo acid jazz styled album (a 4 star album indeed) but being from Detroit I appreciate the way St. Germaine represented Detroit Techno. He took me back to "The music institute" (a popular Detroit Nightclub in the late 80's). If you like Detroit techno with a hint of culture & style get this album.
