VA - French Revolution! 20 Explosive Cuts From France 1965-1971



The french music scene from this period may best be known for the Ye-Ye girls, with the singers Francoise Hardy, France Gall, Sylvie Vartan and Brigitte Bardot. And, of course Serge Gainsbourg. I really dig the Ye-Ye's in part, but I sometimes think it's a bit too much, and a little bit to giggly in parts to be honest. The french scene was so much more at the time. There were groovy instrumentalists, hard kickin' rockers, psychedelics and mad visionaries. Here's my interpretations of France. Vive la France!

01. Antoine - Le Marchand Du Temps (1967)
02. Delphine - Les Prisons De Sa Majesté (1967)
03. Cleo - Madame La Terre (1966)
04. Dani - La Coupe Est Pleine (1966)
05. F.R. David - La Vie C’Est Comme Ci, Comme Ca (1970)
06. Francois Wertheimer - L'Automne (1971)
07. Jean Lecomte - Le Pince Fesses (1967)
08. Ricky Gomez - Mais Quoi, Oui Quoi, Pourquoi  (1967)
09. Dominique Grange - Panurge (1967)
10. Pop Club De France - Château Des Rèves (Dreamy Castle) (1971)
11. Inter-Groupie Psychotherapeutic Elastic Band ‎- Floating (1971)
12. La Révolution Française - Et La Terre Tournera (1969)
13. Les Musiciens - Katmandou (1968)
14. Patricia - Mes Rêves De Satin (1968)
15. Vetty - Nicolas (1969)
16. Jacky Gordon - Un Monsieur Respect (1966)
17. Les Intrigantes - Faut Savoir (1965)
18. Zouzou - Tu Fais Partie Du Passé (1967)
19. Stephane Varegues - Le Pape Du Pop (1967)
20. Patrick Abrial - Le Diable (1966)

Enjoy!

  3. Aaron - I just played volume 1 +2 of this series, they are fab. Your comps are just as good as Ace or Soul Jazz collections. If you are looking for extra work, those labels would be lucky to have you work with them.

  4. Gyro1966 - You are too kind in your comments, I'm a bit overwhelmed! But of course that would be like a dream come true, isn't that every mixtaper's dream?
