I enjoy listening to singer-songwriters lyrics, so a tribute album of covers sung entirely in French (which I can barely string together a sentence in) was not a particularly attractive to me!
I loved Martha Wainwright's first two albums, so with some trepidation I gave Sans Fusils, Ni Souliers, A Paris a Spotify audition. On the first listen one or two tracks stood out (L'Accordéoniste and Le Brun et le Blond), I then listened to it twice more paying it full attention. It then jumped into my Amazon basket (damn those pesky jumping CDs).
The thing is that Martha Wainwight's renditions are full of passion and she's obviously thoroughly enjoying singing every single song. This enthusiasm is utterly infectious and the language barrier becomes irrelevant!
A well deserved place in my CD collection.
