I met this man many years ago in Montreal and have been under his spell ever since. Think I must have all he ever recorded by now. He is magical. /Regards, Taccia.

he seem to be a very special and different human being, yet, so sad
by sad songs makes me happy...

Hello again MR /
So sad songs make you happy ?
I find that very interesting because oddly they have a similar effect on me and I thought I was alone in that reaction.
Leo Ferre's music has a way of clearing all the things that don't matter or shouldn't matter to me. if the result of that is pleasurable, I suppose that's some form of happiness. But mostly I think it's his honesty that touches me the most. Like L.Cohen and others, he has the courage to be what he is, both good and bad. I respect him greatly.
