Some of the coolest, grooviest work from the French scene of the 60s – the complete recordings of the lovely Chantal Goya – a stunning presence both on record and on screen at the time! Goya's maybe best remembered for her role on Jean-Luc Godard's Masculin/
Feminin – where she almost plays a parody of herself – but these rare singles for RCA
from the same time really show her as a hell of a singer, with an incredibly charming sound that really comes through past the barrier of language! As with some of our favorite French female work of the time, the arrangements here are filled with instrumental touches that really support the vocals – tight rhythms, fuzzy guitar and Hammond, and some light orchestrations that always have a nice sort of focus – and none of the cloying charts you might get for a girl singer in the US. The package marks the first time all these tracks have appeared together, and titles include "Laisse Moi", "Tu M'As Trop Menti", "C'Est Bien Bernard", "Comme Le Revoir", "Oh Raconte Moi", "La Flamme Et Le Feu", "Mon Ange Gardien", "Ma Premiere Tendresse", "La Pluie Du Ciel", and "Pense Pas Trop".
