The family and record company of the late poet-songwriter Jacques Brel release five previously unpublished songs. The music appears on a commemorative set issued to mark the 25-year anniversary of Brel's death. Fans and purists are dismayed over the release of the music that Brel asked never be published. NPR's Nick Spicer reports.
