From the back cover: Francis Lai had become a professional musician by the age of 18, and at 24 was writing for Yves Montand and Juliette Greco, two of France's best-known performer. Later he became the accompanist of one of the most celebrated chanteuses of all-time, Edith Piaf, also composing some of her memorable hits. Then a chance meeting with Claude Lelouche, the director and writer of "A Man And A Woman," led to the assignment of his first film score. It proved to be an auspicious debut, with critics praising the poignantly haunting score as highly as the film itself. This success led to he becoming on of the most sought-after composers in the field. In between film score assignments, however, he has taken time out to write for individual artists, and the list includes such impressive names ad Petula Clark and Mireille Matheiu and Patachou. – Ellis Nassour
