Album

Compilation

Master Serie is a compilation album by Jean Ferrat, a French singer-songwriter and poet who was known for his political and social commentary. The album was released in 1992 by Universal Music B.V. and contains 42 songs from Ferrat’s career, spanning from 1961 to 1985. The songs cover various themes such as love, death, war, resistance, friendship, nature and art. Some of the songs are adaptations of poems by Louis Aragon, a French poet and communist activist. The album includes some of Ferrat’s most famous songs, such as “Nuit et brouillard” (Night and Fog), a tribute to the victims of the Nazi concentration camps, “La montagne” (The Mountain), a nostalgic ode to his native Ardèche region, “Ma France” (My France), a defiant anthem against the right-wing government of Charles de Gaulle, and “Que serais-je sans toi?” (What would I be without you?), a love song dedicated to his wife Christine Sèvres. Master Serie is a testament to Ferrat’s musical talent and poetic sensibility, as well as his commitment to social justice and human dignity.
