The French label Barclay Records, with which singer/songwriter Jacques Brel was associated for most of the 1960s and '70s, released a compilation of recordings of his songs in March 2004 that differs significantly from this U.S. edition. The French version of Next Brel has 15 tracks to the American 12, but that doesn't mean simply that three tracks have been deleted. In fact, there are six tracks on the French album not found on the American one: "If We Only Have Love," by Dionne Warwick; "Amsterdam," by Anne Watts; "If You Go Away," by Emiliana Torrini; "Next," by Gavin Friday & the Man Seezer; "The Desperate Ones," by Nina Simone; and "Seasons in the Sun," by Terry Jacks (a number one hit in the U.S.). But there are also three tracks on the American album not contained on the French one: "Les Flamandes," by French chanteuse Barbara; "Ne Me Quitte Pas," by Nina Simone; and "My Death," by Scott Walker. The deletions and substitutions make for less repetition of songs on the American album.

What started out as a compilation album project in 2005, has now developed into a full blown celebration of French music, food, wine and culture. Since that first compilation project, So Frenchy So Chic has grown organically with the help of great reviews and strong Triple J airplay for artists Camille and Emilie Simon. The first concert was a double bill featuring Nouvelle Vague and Emilie Simon at the Art Centre in Melbourne and The Metro in Sydney in 2007. Four years went by with more double bills.In 2009 the idea of a festival emerged. As So Frenchy So Chic creator Jean Francois Ponthieux says: "I wanted to do an outdoor event for a long time but didn't find the right venue until 2010 when I went for a drive with my wife to Werribee Park. I had a revelation. What a stunning place. It ticks all the boxes. It feels European, it's in the country not far from Melbourne and it's beautiful. In 2012 I discovered St. John's College and the rest is history."
