Interviewer: So Sylvester, I've heard it said that you will return soon to France.

Sylvster: Yes, very soon, I would like to present a show. I adore this country.
The manner is very nice. Paris is a city fabulous for me.

I: And good, for someone who doesn't speak French, on the contrary, it is good.

S: So, so, I try.

I: Good. Your new album has become a true hit in all of the French discos. What is your favorite song?

S: My favorite song is "Don't Stop." I have worked a lot on this arrangement.
It has very good rhythm, a lot of magic. It is fabulous. I am very content to decide.

I: To relate your six days in France, Sylvester, tell us what you do.

S: Present my show, and do a little shopping on the boulevard St-Michel. I adore shopping in Paris;
the French love a lot of class. And also the Parisian restaurants, they are superb.

I: You like therefore the French cuisine. What type of dishes do you prefer?

S: I like escargots, beef burgundy, the champagne…

I: Of course!

S: It is good. The crepes. I like the French cuisine.

I: But in Paris, how do you know where to go?

S: I am very lucky. The record company Polydor supplied a guide for me to take me out. I adore Polydor.

I: And "All I Need," your new album, has a sensational cover. How did you come to choose this image?

S: Ah good, Tony Chiumento, an artist in New York, came up with it from an idea of mind. Immediately I found it amazing.

I: So, would you like to say something more?

S: Yes, I hope that you will like my music….Don't Stop the dancing, my music.
