First version of the song Sur la mer. Hélène Martin was to record another one for the 1971 album Hélène Martin chante Jean Giono, Disques du Cavalier 33 RPM (12 inch) n° LM 960.

On the back of the sleeve, the BAM logo, the reference of the record and Jean Genet’s signature changed positions over the course of the pressings.

Incomplete credits on the sleeve for Sur la mer, composed by Pierre Arvay and Hélène Martin.
It was certainly an agreement between them, intended to highlight the composer-singer qualities of Hélène Martin.
