Searching through an old box of things in the house earlier this week, I came across a Nougaro album I hadn’t listened to for years and blam!, then came the full-on Proustian apricot madeleine moment. So many memories, but the first song I listened to had to be this, the best homage to Toulouse sung by the finest Toulousain voice ever. This live version sees Nougaro living his song, as always.
Thanks for the memories and RIP, Claude. Qu’il est loin mon pays, qu’il est loin…..
