Triple CD of classic 1960s French pop & rock `n' roll - also known as "y‚-y‚" - compiled by celebrated French DJ, producer & remixer Kid Loco (French Funk Experience). Features Serge Gainsbourg (with Michele Arnaud), France's biggest rock band of the 60s Les Chats Sauvages plus V‚ronique Sanson's `tribute' to Donovan's `Sunny Goodge Street', `Le Printemps Est L…' & Francois Lubiana's `tribute' to Ben E King's `Stand by me' `Vienne La Nuit'. "Y‚-y‚" was a Europe-wide phenomenon during the 60s as young French female singers and male rock `n' roll groups created their own very French take on pop/ rock & roll - with the current interest in all things 60s & retro y‚-y‚'s popularity is back once again. Beginner's Guide to French Pop features hits from a variety of French labels all now owned by EMI France including Odeon, Path‚ Marconi, Trianon, Ducretet-Thomson, Columbia & La Voix De Son MaŒtre.
