      The graphics are so well managed and printed ! In addition to sounding great, this is one of the best looking reissues I’ve ever seen! Actually I think they used the original negatives for some of the pics and I would not be surprised if some or all of the photos look better than in the original pressing. Wow.

        This is a beautifully pressed reissue. The sound is flawless, full and dead silent. So wonderful to hear such great care in the pressing of reissuing this obscure classic. Great job!

          France Gall, a teenage singer, for whom Serge Gainsbourg wrote many of her hits. That is interesting, but France is also a great Jazz orientated singer singing French Pop. Beside Gainsbourg, her pop, Robert Gall, wrote a lot of her lyrics with various composers. On the surface, Gall sang for teenagers, but the songs were all written by men in their 30s. This is not an unusual occurrence in the world of French pop music. One of her principal arrangers is Alain Goraguer, a remarkable music figure as well. He worked with everyone from Boris Vian, to Gainsbourg and made a significant electronic soundtrack album "La Planète Sauvage." The other arranger on this album is the English composer and arranger David Whitaker. All of the above, including France Gall, contributed to "1968."

          The album captures the year 1968 as if it was an early colored photograph. "1968" yells out the decade due to the exotic instrumentation as well as the balance of pure pop with something substantial. The interesting thing about following French pop music is one should not only pay attention to the headliner (the singer of course) but also equally important are the arrangers. Whitaker and Goraguer have a unique sound, and they truly put their mark on their recordings. "1968" is not only a great France Gall disc but also a crucial recording made by the French, with the help of an Englishman (Whitaker) in a highly inventive album. There are two Gainsbourg songs on the album as well. They are highly recommended.

            What does the BL means on the background sleeve beside France Gall ?
            Is this pressing an original pressing not re-issued ?
            Thanks.

              This album is filled with wonderful orchestral pop songs. French pop players such as Serge Gainsbourg, Joe Dassin, and France’s dad Roger Gall helped with the songwriting, the mood is overall rather melancholic (“Chanson pour que tu m’aimes un peu”, “La fille d’un garçon”), and there are even vague shades of psych (“Chanson indienne”, “Nefertiti”) and jazz (“Les yeux bleus”) on this groovy-sleeved LP. Light and subtle, the orchestral arrangements by David Whitaker add to the intimate feel of the record, while France’s vocals begin to show a remarkable maturity and versatility at this point in her career. “Avant la bagarre” does stand out as a fast, bassy number, but for the most part this album is like a delicate teenage dream.
