Luc et Marco sont deux humoristes qui font la tournée des bars de région. Chaque soir, Marco choisit une tête-de-turc et rit de lui jusqu'à ce que les insultes deviennent blessantes. Lors de leur passage à Anse-au-Pic, les deux hommes prennent en grippe Roger Gendron, cuisinier timide qui travaille dans un casse-croûte. Malheureusement pour eux, ce dernier se révèle être un tueur en série qui n'apprécie pas qu'on l'humilie publiquement. Luc et Marco sont donc kidnappés le soir même par l'individu qui les maintient prisonniers. Pour gagner leur liberté, les humoristes proposent de donner des cours d'humour à Roger pour lui permettre de se défendre lorsque ses confrères le taquinent ou pour séduire la femme qu'il aime secrètement..
There are already so many "best-of" collections of Gerry & the Pacemakers – including previous releases from EMI, Capitol, and Collectables – that this double-CD set from EMI's U.K. division probably won't seem very impressive or important. Actually, very little of the band's history is left out, at least in terms of the various facets of their music – the hits are all present, along with a brace of engaging B-sides and LP and EP tracks that greatly broaden the range of music at hand. The quartet's best-known songs are well-crafted pop/rock in a Merseybeat mode, but they had a harder side as well, and even traded in some R&B and country sounds, and those aspects are represented here in between the hits. Some listeners who like their more rocking sides, such as "Jambalaya," "Maybellene" or "Pretend," may not appreciate the presence of such string-laden pop as "Walk Hand in Hand" or "Girl on a Swing," but this is a valid representation of their sound. And the sound is optimal, to put it mildly, with lots of presence on all of the instruments.
This two-CD set collects most of Celine Dion's essential recordings from her pre-superstar years, when she was a very young French singer, popular in Canada and France. This set starts with the heavily synthesized Euro pop of the 1988 Eurovision contest winner "Ne Partez Pas Sans Moi," which was the song that introduced the singer to international audiences, and is something of a milestone in her career. Many of the songs on this set are fair, and differ from the processed teen pop of the late 1990s because of the ever-present sincerity in Dion's voice. Highlights include the elegant ballads "Tellement J'ai D'amour Pour Toi," "Benjamin," and "La Voix Du Bon Dieu"…
The revamped 1995 edition of Anthology includes all of the group's hit singles, as well as significant album tracks and singles that didn't chart, making it the definitive portrait of the popular, groundbreaking urban contemporary group.
