Chris Spedding- Black Denim Trousers and Motorcycle Boots
Have you seen La Vie En Rose, the new film about Edith Piaf? I still don't know enough about her career to understand how she wound up recording a Leiber and Stoller song. Here's video footage of Piaf recklessly throwing herself into "L'Homme a la Moto." It's quite odd, and not just because the sound is out of sync. Chris Spedding, on the other hand, seems born to sing the song. It's the single best contribution on this 1993 tribute project. Willie DeVille, Leon Russell, Ivan Lins and Emmylou Harris also appear.
I've been digging the MP3s saxophonist Greg Osby has made available at his site.
