Fab female pop from the French scene of the 60s – a wonderful collection of tunes that features a fair number of artists that we've never heard before! The set goes way past the over-compiled, too-familiar French hits of the time – and moves into the world of the hippest jangle pop and yeh-yeh tunes – many of which have a slightly funky or mod undercurrent at the bottom! This is definitely the kind of older French work that's appealing to younger 21st Century ears – far different than some of the more emotive pop of bigger names, and much more in the style of the groovier grooves that always live up to the best imagined version of Paris in the 60s! Most artists are French, but Sandie Shaw also checks in with one number too – and the set features a total of 20 tracks that include "Les Papillons Noirs" by Michel Arnaud with Serge Gainsbourg, "Partie De Dames" by Liz Brady, "Les Mains Dans Les Poches" by Les Roche Martin, "La Musique Et La Danse" by Christie Laume, "Tu Te Moques De Moi" by Ria Bartok, "Amuse-Toi Bien" by Alice Dona, "Bas Les Pattes" by Liz Brady, "J'y Pense Tout Bas" by Ria Bartok, "Les Trois Coleurs De L'Amour" by Alice Dona, "Tu As Peur De Bruit" by Les Roche Martin, and "Sans Avoir Rien Donne" by Anne Kern.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

A really charming little record – one that's hard to describe accurately, but which has really won us over! Tipari hail from the isle of Reunion, but they've also got a sound that's a bit contemporary French – a mix of acoustic guitar, melodica, and percussion – all wrapped up ... CD

Ok, ok – so it's from the Sofia Coppla movie (based on a pretty great book) – but in all fairness this is a really great album from this groovy French combo, and probably one of their straightest (we mean that in a good way). While some tracks channel Pink Floyd a bit, many of their ... CD
