French Folk-Rock!



Jacques Dutronc wasn't the only Frenchman rocking the late 60's music scene. There was also Antoine, otherwise known as the French Donovan, with his beat-protest songs.

Antoine - Ne T'en Fais Pas Pour Cela, Ils Rêvent

Antoine's official site, here.
An interesting article on the French rock scene, here.
Bedazzled has uploaded a scopitone of another killer Antoine tune, 'Un Éléphant Me Regarde', here.
A selection of Antoine compilation cds is available at CDUniverse.

For some reason, in my area Antoine's Vogue LP has popped up a number of times. French expats? Francophiles?
