ferrer is like no other artist of the twentieth century. A man in a class, genre and time all of his own. He is shite.

Nino Ferrer was the first French singer/musician to successfully translate American R & B into French. In addition, he mutated the language at times ("Gaston y a l'téléfon qui son") so that the lyrics fit better with the heavy synchopation of the music. There are several greatest hits CDs available, one even has a 40 page booklet with pictures and a biography which is great because not too much is written about him. I prefer his early work (Le telefon, Les cornichons, Mirza, Oh he...,) but many people enjoy his later stuff and Le Sud is a classic in the lexicon of French songs. A unique and ground breaking voice for French pop in the 60s.

Unfortunately, Nino comitted suicide several years ago, he was anguished over the death of his mother and also probablly depressed.
