The words and music of Le beaujolais nouveau were specially written for The Fortunes’ first ‘album’, a four-track mini CD (remember those?) sponsored by the Château des Ravatys, Rhône Poulenc and the wine-growers association of the Beaujolais region. Here’s the mp3: Le beaujolais nouveau est arrivé ! It sounds as if it was recorded in an empty Beaujolais vat, but in actual fact it was an ancient, freezing cold stone church with a huge echo.
‘What are you doing, the rest of your life?’ This is a wonderful tune by Michel Legrand which I arranged for JukeVox.
