This is lost treasure--one of my top 10 “to take to a desert island” albums.
Didi Favreau’s album, “Rebirth of Wonder” released in 1969 certainly lives up to its prophetic title by reappearing on CD format thirty-seven years later! This is lost treasure, an album I never expected to ever see in print again (I can finally throw that twenty-five plus year old cassette away). It has always been one of my top 10 “to take to a desert island” albums.
Difficult one this: readers of reviews generally want to know what kind of music is on the CD, who the singer resembles, etc. You cannot slot Favreau’s music into any of the usual genres. There are touches of modern blues, Latin folk and smoky jazz all stirred into a pot of lyrical urban stories that touch upon all emotions. This pulsating/soothing/unpredictable music plus Favreau’s self-penned lyrics express what she wanted in 1969 and none of it sounds dated. The creativity that went into this project is astounding. And that voice! There’s not another one like it.
Give this a listen. You may find yourself on a plane to Istanbul (ref: track 8).
