Bargain vinyl find #2



This was another bargain bin find, from easy-listening maestro Franck Pourcel. To be honest, I bought it because it's the first time I've come across an instrumental version of this song. And who better to conduct this Eurovision winner than this man who was the regular conductor for France at the song contest between 1956 and 1972.

Franck Pourcel and his Orchestra - Poupee de cire, poupee de son

This looks like a super cool site - an encylopedia of French record sleeves? Franck Pourcel's, here.

This song reminds me a bit of MUSIC TO WATCH GIRLS BY, my all-time favorite 60's easy listening tune.

Oh I'm with Davecat on this one. Yummy-looking sleeve. Pretty woman does an odd pose and my guard is down...

Whether I like it or not, I'm afraid.
