They Say:

Les BOOTS represented in France, with Ronnie BIRD, Les PROBLÈMES and a few other groups, the cream of anti-yéyé rock. They have all created something unique, a real French pop culture, which is at once the twinks from the Drugstore or the rockers from Castel, new wave existentialism, the beatniks from the Latin Quarter, the Pieds Nickelés and, of course, Swingin' London and its British Beat. In this super 45 lap from BOOTS, we hear four mod-rockers who know their jerk like the back of their hand. They have a sharp and saturated sound, impeccable harmonies, on the level of those of the Hollies, no less than that… And above all, irresistible melodies sung in French! Accompanied by two guitarists with striking ideas, Joël Rive and Farid Khaldi (future Denis Pépin), the bassist, Robert Fitoussi (future FR David), proves to be a formidable singer, with a very particular high phrasing, giving the sensation that his voice and the group's harmonies split the air or glide across it. A must !
