Product note

The Sisters Rescued this Diamond from their Recorded Catalog and Made Sure that it Remains Available to their Fans. The Set Compiles their French Songs that were Included on their Major Label Releases and Adds a Few Others for Good Measure to Round Things Out Here. With the Ladies'' Unique Vocal Harmonies (Sounds that Only Sisters Could Produce) and a Stellar Cast of Backing Musicians, this is One of the Most Enchanting Records Ever Recorded. Even If You Don''t Speak a Word of French, the Emotion, Intonation and Joie De Vivre Present in Each Song Defines the Maxim that Music is the Universal Language.

Product Notes

Their own lineage may tilt toward the English side of Quebec''s bicultural divide, but Kate and Anna McGarrigle courted their home province''s French roots from the outset. When "Complainte Pour Ste. Catherine," recorded for their 1975 debut, proved a hit in France, the McGarrigles repaid the compliment by including several traditional French songs on their second album, then reuniting with "Complainte" lyricist Philippe Tatartcheff for this lovely Francophone collection. It''s of a piece with their superb English recordings, decorating its acoustic arrangements with accordion, organ, and occasional, warm gusts of brass. The songs capture the streets of Montreal and the lanes of smaller, rural Quebec villages, and, like the sisters'' other songs, ponder the timeless contradictions of amour while inserting canny, modern detail. --Sam Sutherland
