I heard too much of it when I was a kid to really appreciate. In France I've never heard anything but respect about the man. For me it's pleasant, often witty, second rate poetry on comfortable chords, slippers for the mind, sort of.

as above so below

He wrotte not politicaly correct lyrics as we would call them now.
2 guitars 1 double bass for his shows . Unplugged tv shows many times in the 60's in France .
A sort of french early Bod Dylan...
Cool to talk about him here and now :-)

I had never heard or seen Brassens before. What caught my attention were his face and mannerisms. He looks like my cousin Larry Mike. Larry taught me some guitar when we were in our early 20s. Cousin Larry came up with the seed of the idea for this song in an impromptu session in 1975: Mr. Ford
