Philips/Universal (Japan), 1967.
CD ... About January 24, 2018
A record as revolutionary as the French year in which it was recorded – an amazing batch of late 60s grooves from Parisian pop madame France Gall! The set's upbeat and jaunty, with plenty of fuzz – almost a psyche pop sound, with lots of groovy guitars that make the album sparkle with ... CD
Philips/Universal (Japan), Mid 60s.
CD ... About January 24, 2018
A totally excellent album from France Gall! The record's one of her earliest full LPs – but France's groovy 60s pop style is already firmly in place, and the songs are all pretty darn great. Alain Gouraguer handled all the arrangements – and the tracks are filled with loads of ... CD
Philips/Universal (Japan), 1966.
CD ... About January 24, 2018
No baby pop here, as France Gall is all-woman throughout – one of the best of the French female pop singers of the mid 60s, working here with an upbeat, groovy sound throughout! Backings are by the great Alain Gouraguer, who gives the record a tightly jerking kind of feel – a sound ... CD
Philips/Universal (Japan), 1965.
CD ... About January 24, 2018
France Gall won the Eurovision song contest with the title track of this one – and for good reason too, given that the tune is totally groovy! The rest of the work here really follows suit – romping, jerking, and grooving in that wonderful mix of mod rhythms that made France's 60s ... CD
Philips/Universal (Japan), 1964.
CD ... About January 24, 2018
Early work by one of the grooviest singers in the French pop scene of the 60s – the lovely France Gall, working here with some very swinging arrangements from Alain Gouraguer! The grooves are wonderful throughout – sometimes jazzy, sometimes more in a "yeh yeh" pop vein ... CD
Claude Lombard Chante
Sommor (Spain), 1969. (reissue)
CD ... About August 1, 2018
The stunning debut album from the lovely Claude Lombard – a Belgian singer, but one whose work here resonates with the grooviest French records by singers like Sylvie Vartan or Francois Hardy! Lombard is probably less pop than either of those artists – and almost has a way of opening ... CD
