JACQUES DUTRONC - Fais Pas Ci, Fais Pas Ca (Disques Vogue EPL 8611) 1968
Dutronc weaves more magic on this 1968 four song EP with my favourite 'Fais Pas Ci, Fais Pas Ca' being the standout. This cut races along with Dutronc's sharp vocal delivery over a crisp tambourine rattle and at 1:40 in length ends all too quickly.
Curiously, 'Fais Pas Ci, Fais Pas Ca' was not compiled on the recent Jacques Dutronc 'Best Of' CD on RPM?
'L'Augmentation' is perhaps the most well known song here, 'Comment Elles Dorment' has a vague Doors like sound with it's eerie organ weaving throughout the arrangement.
Special praise also needed for the wonderful EP sleeve design.
