One of France’s premier ye-ye singers, France Gall passed away in January of this year, almost exactly a half-century after the release of her seventh LP 1968. Including songs penned by Serge Gainsbourg, David Whitaker and her father Robert Gall, this collection of chansons is a good one to have knocking about in case you ever start feeling Gallic. Reissued by Blue Wrasse.

8/10 Jack Customer review, 9th March 2018
France Gall is hard to resist. This is a classic flower-pop album - superior to many far better-known examples of the genre from the U.S and the U.K in the maddening catchiness and infectiousness of the songs. Almost every song has a memorable hook and it never descends into the drippiness that this musical style is prone to. The tone is exuberant, cheeky, mocking, and unwilling to take itself too seriously. If you want a museum piece of pure 1967 (which is when 1968 was released) this is for you.
