JOHNNY HALLIDAY - 'N'Y Crois Pas' EP (Philips 437.191 BE) 196660s French pop is very inconsistant and most of it sounds terrible to my ears, however, some of it is underrated especially when the sound rises above mediocrity. Some would say it usually doesn't even reach that level.
I take chances on many EPs by lots of French artists hoping to find a jewel. Take this EP by Johnny Halliday for instance. It's from 1966 and contains 3 pedestrian cover versions of the hits of the day (ie) 'In The Midnight Hour', 'Girl' and 'If You Gotta Go, Go Now' but the original fourth song 'N'Y Crois Pas' (on Circles - Volume 2) written by Blackburds member Mickey Jones is a minor key moody winner with great Hallyday vocals.
The cover sleeve is also rather GREAT with Johnny still looking like a rocker.
