CHRISTIE LAUME - CE QU'IL FAIT CHAUD
she couldn't be any more bardot if she tried on this track. you can almost visualise her singing this while rolling around in a bikini on a st tropez beach. you will love this one!
CHRISTIE LAUME - JE N'AI PAS VOLE CET AMOUR
we have frans to thank for this - another new - and fantastic song from miss laume. with more of a jazzy piano feel than we are used to - yet it still retains a funky vibe.
CHRISTIE LAUME & RICHARD ANTHONY - COMMENT TU FAIS
great news; i have a few brand new christie songs coming up over the next few days!!! - starting with this duet which featured on a richard anthony 1967 e.p. - it is their wonderful version of the nancy sinatra & lee hazlewood classic track 'sand'
COSETTE - LE GRAND CHAPERON NOIR
massive thanks to erin for this - i'm sure we are all familiar with 2 of her other songs; idealisation and les cheveux dans les yeux, but can anyone help us complete the collection? does anyone have a copy of ballade pour un pourquoi? please help!
JEANETTE - A HEART SO WARM AND SO TENDER
the very early 80's were a great period for her- so many of her songs around this time are just great. this is the english language version of her classic 'corazon de poeta'.
JEANETTE - I AM A REBEL
i love jeanette in spanish, i love jeanette in french, i now also love jeanette in english (with the exception of her 'love is blue' cover which is very disappointing). i hope you'll love jeanettes 'soy rebelde' in english too!
other vinyl i got in paris:
charlotte gainsbourg - charlotte for ever 7"
francoise hardy - j'suis d'accord e.p.
les gam's - il a le truc oui les filles e.p.
marie laforet - vol xi e.p.
adriano celentano - prisencolinensinainciusol 7" - if you don't know it - check it out here - it's amazing!
SERGE GAINSBOURG - MANON
i'd never been to his grave before - i totally forgot to bring him any gitanes too, but good to pay respect to the man who had so much influence on the many dolls we love. i am posting this song because firstly he is a genius and secondly because i think it is just beautifully sad
