L'Amour à la Chaîne pt.13

Right, where were we? Somewhere in the not-too-distant past I posted part 12 of this verrrry slowwwwly progressing Chaîne: It was Jacques Dutronc covers band DUTRONC, but they were covering Les Problèmes - recorded at Toe Rag studios with Liam Watson at the helm, and released on Damaged Goods Records.

I've got multiple linkage for you with this next one >>>>>>>

C'est Fabienne Delsol with a candy-coated cover version of Sylvie Vartan's Ce Jour La (written by Micky Jones and Georges Aber).

Now, Fabienne's hubby is one Liam Watson [check], who has of course overseen production duties, making good use of all that vintage valve-powered gear he's got racked up down at Toe Rag [check] - the recording oozes analogue warmth and sounds like it really could have been released back in the early 60s, rather than coming out on Miss Delsol's swoonsome On My Mind album on Damaged Goods [check] in 2010. Oh yeah, the album also includes a cover of Pas Adieu by Les Problèmes [check].

WOW!! You just made my week!! I've been listening to Fabienne, and now you post her cover of Ce jour-là?? awesome.
I love what she did with Strange Shadows, I even like her version better than Françoise's, which is saying a lot :) Would you happen to have L'ombre (Son amour pour un jeu) by Françoise to share?
And all the info you've posted about M. Jones, etc. is really interesting.. he helped write some great music. ~Darby

Cool, glad you enjoyed the Fabienne post, Darby. As it happens I do have L'Ombre by Francoise, and I shall post it just as soon as I have a spare moment, so do keep an eye out...
