If there are some standards like Hastaluego sung in 1973, or Stewball in 1966, they have been reworked and adapted to the sounds of today.

But this “ Self-portrait ” - this is the title of the album - does not prevent self-mockery. " A ith his mouth old veteran ..." sings he in Dan Tucker , to show that he is fooled by anything.

The main line of the ensemble remains its attention to simple anonymous lives. So he takes up folk songs to tell the story of the railroader or the galleys of an unemployed man ... So many songs born of his profound humanist.
