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.  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible. All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.

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
