Entre gris clair et gris foncé is a 1987 double album recorded by French artist Jean-Jacques Goldman. It was his fifth studio album and was released in November 1987. It provided four successful singles : "Elle a fait un bébé toute seule" (#4), "Là-bas" (#2), "C'est ta chance" (#16) and "Puisque tu pars" (#3). The album was also very successful. It sold more than 2 millions copies, making it the tenth best-selling album of all times in France.
The first nine songs are new compositions. The other eleven songs were written years before. Goldman always wrote one or two songs for each album that either didn't fit the mood of the record or that were too personal. When he started becoming popular, he thought it would be a good opportunity to release some previously unheard songs.
While preparing this album, the new songs were tracked in the studio. The old songs were either recorded live or were recorded using only acoustic instruments.
For the album's first CD release, two songs were omitted ("Tout Petit Monde" and "Il Me Restera") due to time limitations on a compact disc. The 2000 version contained the original LP track listing, this time spread out on two CDs. The first CD contains "new" songs, while the second disc contains eleven previously unreleased songs.
