Ferre Grignard Back Catalogue on Vinyl !

 

Last year Starman Records re-released the debut album by the legendary Belgian folk- and blues singer Ferre Grignard on vinyl. We are very happy to announce the re-release on vinyl on October 6th of the remaining three albums in his short carreer !

 

Born in Antwerp in 1939, Ferre became a true icon in the sixties, adored by youngsters and hippies and hated by the establishment. His successful debut album in 1966 which featured the hits “Ring Ring, I’ve got to Sing”, “Crucified Jesus” and “Drunken Sailor” brought him an international break through with concerts in Paris, London and Hamburg and leading to a contract with the famous French Barclay label.

 

The next 3 albums did not equal the initial commercial success, a pressure the music  business  was happy to put on his shoulders. Still these 3 albums re-leased now in their original packaging and artwork on vinyl for the very first time, are loaded with hidden gems, combining  folk, blues and psychedelics  in Ferre’s  original songs. Also his first great album is still available !

 

Grignard  would have turned 75 this, but sadly succumbed  to throat cancer already in 1982 at the early age of 43. Sadly missed but his music continues it's adventurous journey.
