LUSSIER, RENE: Le Prix du Bonheur
It's been long since Rene's last record, and now he's back with another twist to his biography, this time a CD of songs, sung, played and - as ever - brilliantly arranged by himself, with additional bass, drums and occasional violin (except on one track where Lars Hollmer and a lap steel player also jump in). This CD covers a lot of ground, often in a short space of time, without making a fuss about it. Hawaiian influences, some Albert Marcoeur (inevitably), the whole French Chanson tradition and some rock eruptions, with a universe of guitar playing attached. In general quite a late night listen, but with disruptive edges. Nice texts by Paule Marier. Pretty unclassifiable. Me, I like it.
