Perhaps one of the finest records of this guitarist! Songs like "Le roi renaud" are not easy to forget. The album is available in CD version (Rounder), where the photo of Pierre, the work of Alain Pons, appears on a green background. But far more striking is the cover of the vinyl published by Cezame with a drawing by Patrick Alexandre.

 

Forse uno dei dischi più belli di questo chitarrista, brani come “Le roi renaud” non sono facili da dimenticare. Il disco esiste in versione cd, dove la foto di Pierre, opera di Alain Pons, compare su sfondo verde. Ma molto più suggestiva la copertina del vinile edito dalla Rounder con un disegno di Patrick Alexandre.
