Petula ClarkPetula Clark A Paris ... LP
Vogue (France), Early 60s. Very Good ... $14.99
A beautiful early album of French songs – sung by English singer Petula Clark! If you don't know this stuff, it's very different than her Brit pop recordings with Tony Hatch from the later years. These tracks have more of a French pop feel, and sound a bit like early stuff by France Gall! Titles include "A Paris", "Sous Les Toits De Paris", "Les Feuilles Mortes", "Symphonie", and "Clopin Clopant". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a bit of light wear, some small stains, and a sticker on the back.)

New ManuelaSchuld War Nur Der Bossa Nova (3 CD set) ... CD
BMG (Germany), 1960s/1970s. Used 3 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Who the heck is this lady? We have no idea – but the set's got some very cool pop tunes with a mod 60s feel! The "bossa nova" in the title refers to Manuela's big hit "Schuld War Nur Dar Bossa Nova" – which is a German version of "Blame It On The Bossa Nova", the track that kicks off this 44 track 3CD set – but Manuela's got a lot more in her bag than just bossa nova, and manages to cover a wide range of 60s female pop styles that recall the work of some of our favorites, like Sandie Shaw, Petula Clark, France Gall, and Dusty Springfield. Lyrics are all in German – and apart from the title track, tunes include "Monsieur Dupont", "Schneeman", "Schiwwen Lernt Man Im See", "Jive Manuela", "Ich Danke Dir", "Mama", "Hey Boy, Lass Doch Den Whisky", "Sonntag Im Zoo", "Hand Auf's Herz", "Lollipop", and "Kapitan".

New Caterina ValenteCaterina En France/Pariser Chic Pariser Charme ... CD
Vocalion (UK), 1963/1966. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Caterina Valente sings in French – on two rare albums from the 60s! First up is Caterina En France – an album with French lyrics, but recorded in Belgium with backings from the group of Etienne Verschueren – an ensemble that's able to swing some of the best numbers with a slightly rocking vibe! Bits of guitar, electric bass, and Hammond are used sparingly – but in a groovy style that makes Valente swing like some early 60s femme pop singer! Most tunes are remakes of numbers by Charles Trenet – and titles include "Je Chante", "Verlaine", "Papa Pique Et Mama Could", "Ou Sont-Ils Donc", and "L'Ame Des Poetes". Pariser Chic Parisir Charme features arrangements from Werner Muller and a few other German talents too – all of whom seem to get part of the French vibe of the music right, but who also seem to bring a bit of that postwar German pep into the music too! The songs are French, but the lyrics are in German – which brings a slightly different sound to these Parisian classics – as you'll hear on Caterina's versions of "La Mer", "Moulin Rouge", "Pigalle", "La Vie En Rose", and "Souls Le Ciel De Paris".
