5.0 out of 5 stars Takes you back to those endless summers 24 Sep 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm a fan of France Gall's work from the 70's and 80's but I wasn't sure if I'd like her sixties hits, which she has somewhat disowned. But I took a chance on this CD and I can't stop playing it. It's very 60's and very French. The lyrics vary from juvenile to sharper social comment but are generally entertaining while the music is upbeat and infectious.
Takes you back to those long, sultry summers when the future looked so bright!

5.0 out of 5 stars 60's in French! 16 May 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I don't speak French, but I find it extremely pleasurable to listen to. It has a quality like English music of pre-Beatles pop, i.e. the tunes are catchy and upbeat, not rock. If you like 60's music, whether you speak French or not, think about buying it! Check out France Gall on Youtube!

5.0 out of 5 stars Her early music from the sixties 15 July 2013
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This collection contains France Gall's best music from the period 1963-67. I once read somewhere that she doesn't like the music she recorded back then, but she has nothing to be ashamed of.

Several of the songs were written or co-written by Serge Gainsbourg, while some of the other songwriters will also be familiar to those who like French pop music of the sixties. However, unlike some of her contemporaries, France appears to have avoided French translations of British or American songs. (If she recorded any, they aren't here or on the other compilation of hers that I own.)

Many of these songs were hits for France in her own country and helped to build her career. If you only want one collection of her music, the compilation Evidemment covering her later music is the one to go for. While I agree with France that her later music is even better than this, I still rate the music here highly.

Amazon supplied a new copy, in perfect condition, by return of post, when other suppliers where asking outragious and extortionately inflated prices.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice 60's collection 10 July 2001
By Isis S. Mikhail - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This CD contains a nice collection of France Galle's songs of the 60's. I chose it because it has some of my favorite oldies including "Laisse tomber les filles", "N'ecoute pas les idoles", and "Nous ne sommes pas des anges". But with 23 songs on one CD, it is apt to include some so-so songs, too. I enjoy France Galle's uniquely girlish delicate voice and her happy youthful style that is quite melodious.

4.0 out of 5 stars A GOOD SAMPLE OF HER EARLY DAYS 17 Oct 2000
By ALAIN ROBERT - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Being a fan of FRANCE GALL,i found out that almost all she recorded between 1962 and 1968 with a few exceptions is quite good, even if FRANCE herself has not fond memories of that time.It is quite obvious today that FRANCE GALL was the first of the so called LOLITA type of singer.This collection does a good job .All the hits are there including SACREE CHARLEMAGNE (her least favorite),POUPEE DE CIRE,POUPEE DE SON and my favorite LES SUCETTES with a double meaning lyric to match.All of FRANCE GALL 's early recordings have been reunited on a 4 cd collection.Thank God!There is only one FRANCE GALL, beware of imitators.

5.0 out of 5 stars charm 22 Jun 2001
By Kirk R. Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Actually, I have the 4-CD box set of which this is a selection. That's how much I like this stuff. Yeah, there are some real duds (eg "Sacre Charlemagne"), but they are easily redeemed by the rest. Creative, inventive 60's pop, perfect arrangements, and delivered in that little girl voice that some people just hate. Her pitch is a little off (noticeable because she uses no vibrato), but her sense of rhythm is impeccable. If this is 'ye-ye' music --and that's very debatable-- then it's time to rehabilitate that label. Okay, the Gainsbourg tunes are among the best, but what a shame not to look any further! (Interesting: not a single cover version here, in an era dominated by adaptations of the Anglo-American top ten.)
