Toujours Chic! More French Girl Singers Of The 1960s, LP (£24.78)

Experience the cool sounds of 1960s France on another hand-picked collection of groovy Gallic girl-pop. Available as a 24-track CD and 12-track coloured vinyl album.

The third volume in our popular series spotlighting the female singers of 1960s France, “Toujours Chic!” is available in 24-track CD and 12-track vinyl album formats. The LP version, featuring a gorgeous cover photo of Françoise Hardy, is pressed on 180g lavender-coloured vinyl and comes with a fully illustrated inner bag.

Star of the show is series debutante Laura Ulmer, who graces the cover of the CD version and contributes three adorable tracks from what would have been the finest of her four EPs, had its release not been cancelled at the test pressing stage. Also new to the series are Fabienne with two cool jazz-tinged numbers, “it girl” Zouzou with a pair of Marianne Faithfull-influenced folk rock tunes, future star Véronique Sanson with her solo debut, Charlotte Walters with her esoteric cult favourite ‘Angel Of Sin’, Brian Jones lookalike Stone with two pop-psych nuggets, Nicole Legendre of the duo Les Ruby Baby with a standout track from her solo career and Eurovision stalwart Isabelle Aubret with ‘Arc-En-Ciel’, one of the several Serge Gainsbourg compositions in her catalogue.

Girl-pop buffs with a penchant for psychedelia should dig Delphine’s ‘Les Prisons De Sa Majesté’ with its prominent sitar, while those who prefer their yé-yé more traditional might go for ‘La Guerre Des Chansons’ by France Gall or Sheila’s ‘A La Fin De La Soirée’, her cover of the Exciters’ ‘We Were Lovers (When The Party Began)’. Other highlights include Annie Philippe’s terrific ‘Pour La Gloire’, Pussycat’s Spectoresque ‘Cette Nuit’ and the ultra-trendy ‘Ce Que Je Suis’ by singing actress Valérie Lagrange.
