JACQUES DUTRONC - Et Moi Et Moi Et Moi: 1966-1968

If Serge Gainsbourg was the prime purveyor of Parisian pop in the '60s, Jacques Dutronc didn't lag far behind. Dutronc emerged as one of France's answers to Bob Dylan in 1966, releasing several hit singles and a debut album consisting of acerbic and ironic social commentary wed to an Anglo r'n'b-derived garage-rock beat. So strong and consistent was that album that it's featured almost in its entirety on this very welcome compilation that also includes the best of his more baroque and orchestrated late-Sixties recordings. Suave, debonair, and almost always tongue-in-cheek, Dutronc went on to have a successful career in film as an actor, but this CD will introduce his music to wider non-Francophone audience, and even if your grasp of French is tenuous, there's still plenty here to enjoy.
