Regine50 Plus Belles Chansons ... CD
Universal (France), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 3 CDs ... $26.99
Regine may look a bit cheesy on the cover, but she's a very hip French singer who recorded a fair bit of Serge Gainsbourg songs back in the 60s – a good number of which are in this set! Regine's approach is a cool link between more popular French styles of the immediate postwar years, and some of the shifting sophistication from the left bank scene – a blend of catchy songs and complicated ones – performed at a level that instantly links two different generations of chanson! Many numbers here are arranged by the ultra-hip Alain Gouraguer, who really gets the balance right for the vocals – and most cuts here are from Regine's vintage years, although the set also features just a few from her later revival stretch as well. Titles include "Les P'Tits Papiers", "Si T'Attends Qu'Les Diamants T'Sautent Au Cou", "Tic Tac Toe", "Bye Bye Barbara", "Azoy", "Capone Et Sa P'Tite Phyllis", "Je Survivrai", "Le Chandelier", "Loulou", and lots more.
