|J’oublie La Pluie Et Le Soleil performed by Mireille Mathieu ()|
Here's another recommendation from the great third "Canto Morricone" compilation. After Milva, Mireille Mathieu was the second artist to record a whole album of Morricone songs and this song was no rearrangement of a film song but exclusivley penned by Morricone for Mathieu and also conducted by Il Maestro himself. Mathieu is in excellent form here and the arrangement is as good as you'd expect from Morricone. Bear Family Records did a fantastic job here, including 7 songs by Mathieu, 4 of them have previously only been available on singles, two of these songs, "Nata libera" and "Quando verranno i giorni" were even transfered from vinyl since the original mastertapes couldn't be retrieved. Kudos to Bear Family Records for this great effort.
