Special Claude GARDEN

Click to see enlarged image.

Already three years... Three years since the day he died in St. Joseph Hospital in Paris. He now lies in Bagneux cimetery(1) six feet under a discreet tombstone. Henceforth the only way to chat with him is to use a flowery language... what could be more natural for some one called "Magic Garden", he who made us all dream for more than a half century.
Three years... during which media have kept an indifferent silence. In front of this unbearable situation the Harmonica de France Federation has decided to publish, in December, a special issue entirely devoted to Claude Garden and I warmly recommend it to you.
This interesting publication contains : a biography*, about thirty illustrations, unpublished documents, numerous interviews from everywhere around the world and a complete discography.
Harmonicas de France had received many contributions from french and foreign correspondants. A real good job which deserves many thanks to the staff of this magazine, especially to its editor, Bernard Germain.


If you are interested in this publication (published in french), please send your command with an international money order of 10 euros, to :
"Harmonicas de France", 4 rue Denfert Rochereau, 89000 AUXERRE FRANCE.
