can anyone help me with my chantal kelly collection? i need 'les roses de mon jardin' - anyone have it?
if anyone has - in return i'll get my ass in gear and burn then post her rarely heard songs 'la chanson du coucou' and 'biolou-biolou'.
when i found this picture of twiggy i had no choice but to share it with you. i was absolutely blown away by it. she has never looked more amazing than here. her sulky, almost upside down mouth, and iconic twig eyelashes - stunning.
molly drake is infact folk legend nick drakes mother (and sci-fi star gabrielle drakes mother for any u.f.o. fans out there). an album of her home made recordings of songs she wrote herself in the 50s/60s has recently been released. the songs are filled with a gentle, intimate sadness that give us a sense of what nick was brought up listening to. molly has a slightly plumby english singing voice yet many of her lyrics are melancholic and the result is curiously charming. i hope you enjoy it.
p.s. -how i wish nico had sung this song too
and here's vashti singing 'i remember' - a song written by molly
FRANCE GALL - SO EINEN JUNGEN MANN (1969)
massive thanks to vani for this and the next post - two new (to me anyway) german songs by fg. this is her version of the bossa nova classic (also done brilliantly by astrud gilberto) - summer samba/so nice
watch this francoise hardy special as she sings around london (in the freezing cold by the look of it). Some of it is amazing- some of it is an amazingly wasted opportunity - but it has a charm all its own. but francoise is wonderful - she even moves and 'dances'!!!
