Claudine Longet – Love is Blue

I was recently turned onto this French singer from the 60s-70s and I’m slowly falling in love with her voice. Claudine Longet released a ton of music while she was active but her career was overshadowed by the shooting of her husband, who was an Olympic skier, in 1976. She ended up getting a slap on the wrist for it and the case was settled out of court, but she was never quite as active musically after this event. I may be posting a lot of music from France in the coming weeks because I feel like there’s so much great music that has emerged from there over the last 50+ years and I’ve only been exposed to the tip of the iceberg. Enjoy…
