Chalot, Veronique – “J’ai Vu Le Loup” – [Get Back]

Max Level   1/15/2013   12-inch, International

“I Have Seen the Wolf.” Music recorded in 1977, but sounds timeless. The acoustic instrumentation (dulcimer, guitar, autoharp, violin, flute, hand percussion, possibly a crumhorn or two?) transports the listener to another time and place, maybe 500 years ago in a rural European setting replete with green fields and streams. Chalot sings in a sweet, clear voice, and entirely in French. I hear elements of Fairport Convention, Sister Sourire, and medieval dance music. An exceedingly pleasant listen.
Tracks A2 & B5 are instrumental.
