    From the ultra-rare, unreleased, outside of commerce 1965 LP "Jacques Brel Chante La Belgique" comes the first of three tall tales by another "J.B." than Jacques Brel, "Jean de Bruges." The three tales form a "Poème Symphonique" with music composed by François Rauber. The first tale is at once a creation myth about how the Red Sea got its name, and an adventure tale of a courageous seaman facing the world's biggest whale. Jean de Bruges is a regular at this bar-- buy him a beer and he'll tell you his story. Female voice is Janine de Waleyne. If you see a copy of this LP, grab it. It's worth thousands of dollars to collectors.Thanks to philipchek of YouTube and Paris for refining this translation
