JACQUES DUTRONC - 'Les Metamorphoses' (Disques Vogue EPL 8630) 1968

This Dutronc EP carries on with the same kinda bag as the previous one but with mixed results. The opener 'Le Courrier Du Coeur' is irrating French pop sung crooner style. 'Ca Prend, Ca N'Prend Pas' is blues rock and is quite listenable.

The best two cuts are reserved for the second side with the psychedelically processed 'Les Metamorphoses' the pick. The French seemed to make no attempt to write and perform psychedelic music in the 60s, there are rare examples...very rare attempts. At least Dutronc offers us a Donovan(esque) surprise.
