Bruce Huard: Seul Avec Bruce
I just discovered an unknown version of "The Weight" adapted in French
as "La Peine Est Sur Benny". It's on the 1968 LP Seul Avec Bruce by Bruce Huard, the former Sultans leader, released in
The funny thing is that the song is credited to Bruce, although it's the
same melody & close lyrics (with "Nazareth"...). Also on the LP,
uncredited French covers of the Zombies, Simon & Garfunkel, and
credited covers of Tim Hardin, Beatles, Mann & Weil.
