Ferre Grignard – Captain Disaster (1968)
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 !
I Won’t Have A Dance
Tell Me Now
Down In The Valley
The Pirate Song
The Lost Affair
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.
Grignard would have turned 75 this, but sadly succumbed to throat cancer already in 1982 at the early age of 43.
The debut album of Ferre Grignard is stell available as well !
