    • The great Elly Stone. When I was a student, already writing reviews professionally, I was offered comps to a concert of hers. Never heard of her, nor of Brel. From that night on I was a devotee of both. I was lucky enough to see hr several more times in concert. She always sang principally Brel songs, though not exclusively — Alexander’s Song was not Brel — and her encores were usually what she called”songs of my people.” With that voice, she could have sung the phone book and her audience would have been agog.
