  • Various - C`est Chic! French Girl Singers Of 1960s (CD)

    18,00

    CD Description* This time last year Ace were busy preparing for the release on Big Beat International of Nippon Girls”, a collection of female vocalists from Japan. It ended up drawing a very favourable reception, especially from hip young club-goers with a yen for something edgy and different to inspire them on the dance floor. For the first issue to carry The new Ace International logo, they stray a little less far from home, hopping just over the channel to France, home of the 1960s yé-yé girl phenomenon.* Comprising 24 tracks by 20 acts – Françoise Hardy, France Gall, Jacqueline Taïeb and the country’s top girl group Les Gam’s are each represented by two titles – ”C’est Chic!” features many of the premier female stars of Gallic pop, plus a few French-singing non-nationals for good measure.* The majority of the songs here are French compositions, but astute listeners will recognise some others in their English language originals. `We Got A Thing That’s In The Groove’ (as popularised by US soul group the Capitols), `I’m Going Out With The Girls’ (Barbara Chandler), `Laugh At Me’ (Sonny Bono), `Around And Around We Go’ (Lonnie Jay & the Jaynes), `Tiny Goddess’ (Nirvana), `He’s In Town’ (the Tokens) and `The Sha La La Song’ (Marianne Faithfull) are each given a distinctive French twist.* The compilers are currently immersed in the recordings of the yé-yé girls of Italy and Spain with a view to future Ace International releases. Also in the works is a collection of compositions by fabled songwriter Serge Gainsbourg, from whose vast catalogue `Roller Girl’ by Anna Karina, `Laisser Tomber Les Filles’ by France Gall and `Non, A Tous Les Garçons’ by Michèle Torr are among this set’s highlights.”
