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.

  1. in France the most well known song is "fais pas ci fais pas ça"
    it was used in an advertise during years, and also for a tv theme

    it's one of his most famous songs actualy i think (with les cactus, j'aime les filles, la fille du père noel, et moi et moi et moi or les playboys)

  2. In this EP, the hit is "Il est cinq heures, Paris s'éveille", number one in France, number 3 in Holland (see Charts). "Fais pas ci, fais pas ça", nº12 in the hit-parade of the magazine Salut les Copains", is now the credits'music of a french TV serial, "Fais pas ci, fais pas ça".
