Merlins Nose Records present a reissue of Jacqueline Taieb's debut album, originally released in 1967. This 1967 yé-yé debut album is as scarce as gold dust, fetching high prices among collectors if they find a copy in good condition. Tunisian-born Jacqueline did fairly well with her music over the past 50 years and here we witness her more than adequate start into the world of chanson and pop. Her intense brand of fiery, late '60s beat, refined with tinges of garage rock, can be considered as an ear candy for '60s aficionados. Some rather lightweight tunes twang around you like flock of colorful butterflies and could easily have been a great success for the one or another star of the American West coast pop scene. Melancholic ballads straddle into this checkered round dance and seize your heart. The waking call happens instantly with a well-placed gruff beat tune, which you would not expect from such a tender young woman. In the next moment, a passionate French chanson drags you back to the opposite side. From well-behaved to cheeky and even charming. Due to very memorable and substantial compositions, this jewel of late '60s pop music is a classic. RIYL: Rolling Stones, The Shocking Blue. Edition of 1000.
