BrazilOnGuitar says: In 1965 BP returned to Paris to record his second album for Barclay with the French singer Billy Nencioli. They composed twelve songs. The texts were written by Billy Nencioli, the music and arrangements were done by BP, who until 1965 gained a lot of experience in accompaning. Unmistakably he is accompaning Billy Nencioli in all songs. Baden Powell worked very hard on the arrangements. He took the recordings very seriously. The style of the songs varies from dance songs to more complex jazz songs. We do not understand the lyrics, but this record has its charme and we enjoy listening to it.

We did not find much information about Billy Nencioli himself, Charles Aznavour remembered him as […] a gentleman, a pacifist in the times of the Algerian war and a exceptional composer of songs, that came directly from the heart like "On lui a donné", "Ça m' regarde" , "Les poteaux", "Tante Amélie", "On ne trouve ça qu'à Paris" [...] . Billy Nencioli passed away at age 65 in 1998. We thank Robert G. for his translation and Olaf (Netherlands) and Edgard Pocas for the scans of the brazilian edition.
