For some reason I couldn't understand the lyrics...

Hi David, thanks a lot for paying attention to my music.

.....well for the lyrics you don't understand ,It could be because I set the threshold of the compressor too low ūüėä

Olivier,
Very nice performance.
I thought at first this is a direct translation of City of New Orleans into French but it's not. The lyrics can be found by googling "salut les amoureux".  I used Google translate for a not so poetic English version.

Hi Bjorn,

cool to read from you and thanks for your comment.

No It is not a translation ,

Actually It has been a proper hit in France by the times,I really mean a hit ,here in France everyone born around the sixties knows this song .

Joe Dassin's mother and father were american and I don't remember why ,but he landed here in France  and became a real star here... He died  too early,at around 45 .

I like his adaptation ,because ,as a a kind of country fan ( not only though,but I do appreciate country music because of its oral transmission) ,I am really found of  " City Of New-Orleans" , but Dassin ,with his deep understanding of what was going on ,made somewhat another song but imho ,in the proper spirit of the original .

Thanks again,got to take time to check your songs .

cheers.

Olivier

( sorry for the edit It is because my device is hung on french and introduces many typing errors:-) )

Yes,  very nice. The vocals and guitar lies almost perfect in the mix. Maybe a tiny bit more reverb on the vocals, but other than that. Splendid!

Hi " kloon "

thank you .

yes maybe a little bit too dry ,but you know how it goes ,one time drawned in the verb then next time  you overcompensate and it is to dry and so on ....

Thanks for listening.

Nice playing, nicely captured, though like many even the Shyriiwook translator could not handle the lyric translation ;)

Hi John ,

thanks a lot...

Well for the translation ,I admit it must be tricky because there are a lot of idiomatic turns of phrases .

maybe I will try to give a shot but not sure to be able.

Cheers.
