Carnets de scène (Eng: Memories) is an album recorded by the French artist Patricia Kaas. It was her first live album, and her third album overall. Recorded during the Scène de vie tour, Kaas' first concerts tour, and released in 1991, the album was successful, particularly in France, and was also re-issued as DVD in 2004.


After the huge success of her first two studio albums, Kaas decided to performed a series of concerts across the world : the Scène de vie tour. There were 210 concerts, 650,000 spectators in 13 countries, including Japan, Canada and the USSR, where she sang in Moscow and Leningrad. It was recorded across two days between May 12 and 19, 1990, at Zénith of Paris (France).

The album contains many songs from Mademoiselle chante... and Scène de vie, plus a few new songs, such as "Lily Marlène". The hits "Mademoiselle chante le blues" and "Quand Jimmy dit" were performed in an extended version.

About 13 years later, the label Sony BMG also published the album as a live DVD.

The CD went straight to #8, its peak position, on December 6, 1991, on the French SNEP Albums Chart. It remaied for only two weeks in the top ten and 16 weeks in the top 40.[2] It achieved double gold four years after its release.[3]

The album was less successful in Germany (#53) and Switzerland (#40), where it stayed in the low positions.[4]
