    Promo CD (Delabel / EMI / EMI, 1998)
This commercial compilation by EMI France / Delabel was curated by Pierre-Jean Crittin from Vibrations magazine, and focuses on singers and crooners, but avoiding the obvious of the style. Therefore it includes some recent/contemporary artists, like The Divine Comedy, of which A Short Album About Love’s song ‘If…’ is included.

The design’s idea is a cassette; probably because it means to evoke a mixtape.

Promo CD

A promo CD of this compilation also exists, the CD is exactly the same, but it is just card sleeve instead of a jewel box.
