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.
