Sixth disc from 15CD Box-set containing all Joe Dassin`s albums.
The album contains 12 titles, two of which are hits - "La com-plainte de l'heure de pointe" (A velo dans Paris) and "Le moustique", both cover versions. Joe prefers "The City of New Orleans", written by Steve Goodman, arranged by Arlo Guthrie and adapted by Claude Lemesle with the participation of Ricky Dassin, but Jacques Plait (one of France's top producers) keeps in mind the failure of the previous album and reduces costs. Nevertheless, the Goodman/Guthrie creation will become "Salut les amoureux"… The release of the album is planned for December and CBS decides to rerelease "La Bande a Bonnot". The first single, containing "La complainte de l'heure de pointe", appears at the height of the Christmas shopping season. France celebrates the New Year's Eve pushing the pedals of the bikes in time to Joe's song…
