Michel Polnareff: Âme Câline

"One day I may hit you with Raymond Lefèvre or Horst Jankowski," I threatened some years ago.

Horst must wait, but Lefèvre's Soul Coaxing is terrific and you should listen to it now.

What I didn't know when I first mentioned it is that Soul Coaxing was an arrangement of the song Âme Câline - I think that translates as "The Loving Soul" - by Michel Polnareff. It dates from 1967, when he was something of a sensation in France.

His Wikipedia page reveals that Polnareff has had a long career interspersed with periods of success and obscurity and is still recording.

You can even follow him on Twitter.
