Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris

My father was a poorly educated working man from Glasgow. However, he was ahead of his time when it came to musical culture and he had an eclectic taste spanning groups like 10cc to operas like Lakmé. How lucky I was to be able to learn from his music education.
Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris was just one of those obscure pieces that my father listened to, and I still listen to today. I was in my teens before I found anyone else who had heard of Jac Brel, and what a great oment that was for me.
