Henri Dès: Biography and collector's cd

by Dominique Dufaut 91 views

A new biography of Henri Dès' career has just been released in France and Switzerland (Editions Favre / Le Matin). “De fils au pere” (from the son to the father) was written by Pierrick Destraz, Dès' son. Henri Dès', born Henri Destraz, represented Switzerland in the 1970 Eurovision Song Contest,

A bonus CD packaged with the book includes 8 songs of Henri's "adult" period including "Retour" the song that he performed under the Swiss flag in the 1970 Eurovision Song Contest. Among the other tracks, collectors will highly appreciate "Quand on revient d'ailleurs" (1973 Swiss selection) and "C'est pour la vie" (1976 Swiss selection), the other two attempts of Dès to enter the Song Contest.
