Another coastal find... this Hélène Martin LP, a musical setting of Louis Aragon's poem about Pablo Neruda. So far I have not gone wrong buying Hélène Martin records. This one sounds a bit like Brigitte Fontaine without the random cackling, or maybe like a TV special about poetry with weird chanson folk flourishes. And of course it's all very French. Or Chilean. Plus there are lots of pictures on the inside of Neruda and his partner Matilde (I like the selfie above).
The photos of the players are also great. Nice to see Jean Cohen-Solal make an appearance, but I must say the attention-grabber here is Mireille Rivat, who takes care of vocal duties for the songs in Spanish. Haven't heard of her before but I am entranced by her expression in the photo below. Really love the song in the second half of the clip, especially when Cohen-Solal drops the one-finger organ part.
