France, sorry, no English translations for the titles.....

......so it is and so it will be, any of you Yanks that took a valuable high school course in the French
language might have fun helping us out with what some of these titles "mean".....anyway, these three discs are all fab. Evidently the French had not so much of a garage scene (easilly imaginable for some reason), but with a few exceptions their scene seemed to run toward psych-pop......first up we have "O Toi Beatnik: Chansons Obscures du beat Francophone 1965-67!!! (punctuation theirs, not mine)"...so I gather these would be tracks from 1965-67, and I'd gather that they are obscure, and I love the "!!!", implying maybe greatness? Find out for yourself......Les Senders, Les Volcans, Les Bowlers, Equipe 79.......scores more, not going to list song titles in this paragraph cause I have NO CLUE as to whether any of them are amusing or not.......

"Generation Purdue-Rock Francais 1965-66" is rather self-explanatory as well, although several bands are given multiple looks, which I always enjoy, giving a more thorough picture.....Les Gyspys get 6 tracks, and everyone else gets at least two....even get an English song title or two, Les Rockers check in with "Let's Go" and "Tell Me (You're Coming Back"), Les Gypsys must have been up for nights coming up with titles like "Allright" and "Oh Yeah!".......most enjoyable album as well.

Saving the best for last and side stepping my
concept (just a bit), this one has some 1970's stuff as well as the "Nuggets" era, pure psych-pop,  but here is the thing......perhaps the greatest album title in compilation history, "Freakout Total".........how great is that? "Freakout Total", gotta love it!   Plus, this is also a fab album, you'll love this one as well too, trust me, check below for the artists/track titles, losts of dashes and appostrophes in the names and titles, supposedly this is a "beautiful" language, but it sure is a pain in my ass to type.........and, although this is hard to confirm, there seem to be a LOT of volumes of "Freak Out Total"......this one is the most easilly accessible, seemingly (Volume 3), if anyone has them AND (important) they are REALLY hearing, send em along, but we have a pretty thick slice of French stuff here as is, so if it is as repetititive as I suspect it MIGHT be (and I'm wrong all the time), I'll pass, but something French that is more along the "garage-y" stuff we've been digging on from everywhere else, set me straight, Daddy-o!

Away we go.......something else tomorrow.......THREE discs today, don't let me down, need to hear the comments, especially since my great friend Psyclist will be biking around Southern Asia for the next month!

I love them accents on them sexy French babes, not quite so much as say Aussie babes or Swedish,
but those French babes have a kind of sexy arrogance their voices, a kind of "I'm better than YOU" attitude (actually I LIKE that, don't get me wrong).......and I assume that the land of France, at the VERY least, has given us the wonderful toungue wrestling exercise for which it is named, and of course that is no small thing, not at all.........
