5.0 out of 5 stars Takes you back to those endless summers, 24 Sep 2012

This review is from: Poupee De Son - the Best of France Gall (Audio CD)
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 Her early music from the sixties, 15 July 2013

This review is from: Poupee De Son - the Best of France Gall (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.
