As well as very good music, this record has a VERY SEXY and NUDE lady standing on the front cover, just make sure that your mam does not see you have this record, or you might get in trouble!!

Amazing album ! Heard it a little while ago and it still keeps coming back ...Re-release ? I'd love to ! Has anyone a contact for licensing or master rightsholder/s ?

Need this in my life with the original lp cover!

This badly needs a vinyl re-release, with the original album cover is a must!

Every time I hear Le Sud (en fraçais) l'm really moved: this could be the hymn of my chilhood!
Nino & Radiah is the most elegant, relaxed and soulful approach to 70's US groovy vibe/New Orleans funk made in France at that time. You can find here the members of LaFayette Afro-Rock Band/ Ice that got notoriety in the parisian music scene ( with the producer Pierre Jaubert) Awesome band!.
But why (oh why?!) the wonderful Radiah Frye ( "chant et sympathie) in all her gorgeous,nice & gentle nudity (in the original cover) is omit/banned in some reeditions? tracks vomitation/ mint julep appear also in a different order!...
This is a Must Have!
Nino Ferrer: Grande! & unforgettable genuine artist.

This is fantastic pop record from the beginning to the end. So many great tracks. I can hear Air's La femme d'argent in the Garden's keyboard solo.

This is an incredibly solid piece of work. "Mint Julep" is a personal fave, although the motorcycle chase effects and murder mystery string section on "Looking For You" probably push it into the top spot as THE cut to send out to the aliens on a silver platter. "Hot Toddy" is probably the one that drags for me, but even there we have some ace musicianship.

It's pretty clear from the titles on this record that Nino and Radiah had a few beverages involved when putting this bad boy together. Players gotta play. Side note: I'm not crazy about the couple of meh singles Radiah put out herself around this time, but I do love her vocals on this album.

RIP Nino... people, don't bring a gun into your home if you suffer with depression.

4.1/5 looking for you in the stars Nino xoxo
