JACQUES DUTRONC - 'La Fille Du Pere Noel' (Disques Vogue EPL 8497) October 1966
The enormous success of the first Dutronc EP made a follow up an obvious one and the four songs on this disc mirror much of his debut. There is a more garage sound though on two of the tracks, for instance 'On Nous Cache Tout, On Nous Dit Rien' there's some neat fuzz guitar and there is compact organ utilized on 'Sur Une Nappe De Restaurant'.
The only song not compiled on the recent Dutronc 'Best Of' EP released on RPM is 'La Fille Du Pere Noel'...not sure why the compiler didn't use it but it's got a satisfying Bo Diddley backbeat with Dutronc's lazy Dylan style vocals. Too good to miss.
