(JACQUES DUTRONC HAD IT ALL. HE WAS FRANÇOISE HARDY'S BEAU, IMPECCABLY DRESSED AND EQUALLY HANDSOME. ABOVE ALL, HE WAS A CONSUMATE MUSICIAN, ABLE TO TURN HIS HAND TO WHATEVER STYLE TOOK HIS FANCY. ALTHOUGH THE NON-FRENCH INTEREST IN DUTRONC STEMS FROM HIS SUPERFICIALLY GARAGE-ROCK LEANINGS, HIS MIX OF SARCASTIC LYRICS WITH THE BOULEVARDIER TRADITION AND '60S ROCK OFFERS SO MUCH MORE.

Lets be honest, the chic filled glory of the 1960's French music scene is something really to behold by any music lover, its actually really difficult to find a dud album from the sixties amongst the multitude of singers and producers from across the English Channel, but with this compilation, any thoughts of Serge Gainsbourg or the yé-yé girls must surely take a back seat to the talents of Jacques Dutronc, a man who literally had it all in his musical arsenal.
This compilation begins with the title track, Et Moi Et Moi Et Moi was Dutronc's first big hit in France back in 1966, and it is easy to see why, a song which certainly swaggers and oozes marvellousness combining the best of Anglo Rhythm and Blues with a French twist. And to be fair, on looking through the sleeve notes, its easily noticeable that this man was at one point the coolest man alive, with a repertoire to match.Read more ›
As is the way with most non-English-speaking artists, most of us have never heard of Jacques Dutronc, but don't let that put you off! If you like hip, club-style sound from the 60s, then you will love this, whether you speak French or not. Anyone who's ever been to any 60s nightclubs will already know quite a few of the songs on here; hearing "On Nous Cache Tous, On Nous Dit Rien" and "Le Responsable" again after so many years was very nostalgic for me, and further enhanced my opinion of it.
Around half of the songs on here (presented in chronological order) are definitely in the garage vein, although without the usual "my girl's no good"-style lyrics. If you do understand French, you would realise just how wierd some of these lyrics actually are (eg "There are cactuses all over the world, it's impossible to sit down"!), but this is not essential to appreciating the great tunes, which to me sound like what might have happened if The troggs met Bob Dylan.
The other half of the tracks are a mixture of various styles, from the tongue-in-cheek music-hall Kinks-ish of "Les Playboys", the out-and-out psychedelia of "La Metamorphoses" to the protest-style "Les Rois De Reform". Whatever mode he was in at the time, Jacques delivers top-quality stuff throughout this CD; there is not a bad tune amongst them.
I am now very interested to find out more about this obviously extremely talented guy. I would thoroughly recommend this CD to anyone interested in top-quality 60s sounds. On ne sera pas decu!
