L'Integrale Femmes De Paris & Gentlemen De Paris (4CD set)
A treasure trove of female French pop from the 60s – packaged in a special case with a bonus male disc too! The 4CD package is a tremendous introduction to the hippest French pop sounds of the 60s – and goes way past the obvious stars of the time to include some cool girl singers who never got full exposure here on this side of the Atlantic. Some of the tracks on the set are versions of English-language hits, and others are original French numbers with a really hip, mod, go-go approach – very romping and groovy, with the sort of styles that are becoming the best-remembered from the time. The overall sound here is similar to some of France Gall's best work from the mid 60s – touched with traces of some of the Brit girl singers, but handled with some great instrumental touches that really make the tunes come alive. 4CD package features all 3 volumes of the Femmes De Paris series in thin LP-style sleeves, plus a bonus disc of the Gentlemen De Paris set – making for 73 tracks in all, including "7 Heures Du Matin" by Jacqueline Taieb, "Partie De Dames" by Liz Brady, "Je Suis Sublime" by Elizabeth, "Fille Ou Garcon" by Stone, "J'Ai Peur Parfois" by Adele, "L'Adorable Femme Des Neiges, "Idelisation" by Cosette, "Dracula" by Christine Pilzer, "La Fille De Paille" by Brigitte Bardot, "Baby Love" by Annie Philippe, "Nitty Gritty" by Jocelyne, "Et Moi Et Toi Et Soi" and "Madame La Terre" by Cleo, "Pourquoi Pas Moi" by Stella, "Agathe Ou Christie" and "Des Tigres Et Des Minets" by Christine Delaroche, "La Premiere A Gauche" and "La Fac De Lettres" by Jacqueline Taieb, "Les Cheveux Dans Les Yeux" by Cosette, "Je Suis Folle De Tant T'Aimer" by Arlette Zola, "Je Ne Veux Plus D'Accordeon" by Adele, "Cette Fille N'Est Rien Pour Lui" by Maryrene, "Fallait Pas Ecraser La Queue Du Chat" by Clothilde, "Aucune Fille Au Monde" by Pussy Cat, "Les Yeux Doux" by Olivia, "Palladium" by Liz Brady, "Tu Fais Partie Du Passe" by Zouzou, "Rien N'Y Fait Rien N'Y Fera" by Catherine Ribeiro, "La Porte A Cote" by Christine Delaroche, "Dis-nous Dylan" by 5 Gentlemen, "My Name Is Eduard" by Edouard, "Elles Ne Veulent Pas De Moi" by Les 1515, "Une Fille Mais Qu'Est Que C'Est" by Les Anges, "Pas Question" by Eric Charden, "Le Jour La Nuit Le Jour" by Les Lionceux, "Ma Theorie" by Steff, "Changement De Main" by Claude Richi, and "Boomerang" by Jean-Claude Brialy & Serge Gainsbourg.
