Claudine Longet – Colours – Mini-LP Papersleeve CD Replica

Elemental Music together with Universal Music Spain proudly present a new CD reissue of Colours, the fourth studio album by French chanteuse CLAUDINE LONGET, originally released by A&M records in 1968.

Although probably best known for her implication in the 1976 murder of boyfriend and Olympic skier Spider Sabich, Longet released a string of sophisticated pop albums in the late 60’s which have long been cult favorites among fans of the genre. Colours is considered her best album by true connoisseurs, and includes arrangements by the great Nick DeCaro and production by the now legendary Tommy LiPuma.  Among the songs are silver-tongued versions of pop classics by Donovan, Simon & Garfunkel, The Everly Brothers, Joni Mitchell,Gordon Lightfoot and Randy Newman.
