C'est Chic! French Girl Singers of the 1960s
This time last year we 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 favorable 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 our new Ace International logo we stray a little less far from home, hopping just over the channel to France, home of the 1960s y?-y? girl phenomenon.Comprising 24 tracks by 20 acts - Fran?oise Hardy, France Gall, Jacqueline Ta?eb 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 recognize some others in their English language originals. We Got A Thing That s In The Groove (as popularized 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 y?-y? 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 Gar?ons by Mich?le Torr are among this set s highlights.UPC:734342733714SKU:ADIB0042EJD7G
