4.80 32

Rare pop psych from the late 60s & early 70s French scene – groovy singles from Le Coeur, Les Hamsters, Les Chimeriennes, Dan Le Bouffon, Christopher Laird, Yar & Yana and others – really cool stuff, most of which we've never heard before! Lion's Groove Club series goes on to focus on Cambodian grooves for Vols 2 & 3, but the belated Vol 1 belongs to the Parisian pop psych scene. Chiming little guitar tunes with sweet harmony vocals, even more harmony drenched tunes inspired by west coast US acts like The Mamas & Papas, medieval folk pop styled tunes, mod & funk groovers and more – lots of period influences from the US and Europe, but ultimately it's profoundly, and charmingly French sounding! Includes "Bye, Bye City" by Le Coeur, "Flower Power" and "Georgie Girl" by Les Hamsters, "Dee Duck" by Maraton, "Une Petite Fille" by L'Empreinte, "Bye, Bye Brighton" by Epta, "Nevada" by Les Rotomagus, "Crazy Mister Badge" by Mister Badge, "Monsieur Cyber" by Les Chimeriennes and more.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Academy, 1975. New Copy
A holy grail of 70s African Funk – and not just for the unusual look of the cover!
