The picture of little Isabelle was also used for the first Antena release in 1982 ('The Boy from Ipanema'). It's on the back of the sleeve together with childphotos of the other two Antena members in those days; Pascal Moiroud and Sylvain Fasy.
Over the years Isabelle has released lots of great music. It really is an impressive repertoire but the early recordings by Antena as a trio have always been my favourites. I think their 'Camino del Sol' is one of the most charming records ever!

Thanks for the info! I'll definitely have to check out more of her music!

For the 'Boy from Ipanema' cover, see:
As a fan I'm pleased that 'Camino del Sol' has had some re-releases including many bonustracks. It's great how the early Antena has been discovered again by a new generation. Permanent Vacation records is about to release a new edition of the album with remixes only!
